The 1,032 responses showing a 98% support for recreational uses of the site helped curtail the CEDD on 21 March 2016 in the District Council.
The District Council’s decision was to support the long-term use of the site by HKU for recreational uses.
However, as HKU has yet to formalize its applications CEDD will be granted the use of the site for a maximum of 2 years (instead of the 4 applied for).
The CEDD will use the site to support the installation of 26 lifts (universal access) at various footbridges. It was argued that their land application was received well before HKU submitted an expression of interest. It was noted that associated traffic will be limited. CEDD was urged to take every possible mitigation measure, and avoid community complaints over the use.
My office will remind HKU that it is now important that they firm up their land allocation application, including obtaining policy support from the Education Bureau.
The District Council has asked for a review of the use of the site in 21 months.
The Civil Engineering and Development Department (Universal Accessibility Programme) has submitted an application to use the site for storage and offices for a minimum of 4 years.
At the same time, HKU has submitted an application to use the land for an Outdoor Sports and Adventure Education Centre.
