The Chairman's Message

From The Chairman

Dear Members,

The six months public consultation on policy review of Private Recreational Leases (PRLs) was concluded on 19th September 2018.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank to all our members, stakeholders and staff for your enthusiastic participation in submitting your views to Home Affairs Bureau (HAB). The number of responses from HKCC is impressive.

Please also be reminded, The Task Force on Land Supply is still conducting its five-month public consultation for views on the 18 options for future land supply. Among the options proposed, "Alternative Uses of Sites under Private Recreational Leases (PRLs)" and "Relocation or Consolidation of Land-Extensive Recreational Facilities" are included.

The deadline for the Task Force on Land Supply Survey is 26 September 2018.

I encourage you to take part in the Land Task Survey by clicking the following link:

HKCC General Committee's view is to not select any option that will result in a reduction of Sporting Facilities either using land currently under PRL or Government land.  To reduce any sporting facilities in Hong Kong will have an adverse on our sporting development.

Thank you again to everyone at the Club for your continuous support for our future.

Yours sincerely,
James Callow
Chairman
