Legal Basis of Decision for the Approval of Sai Sha Residential and Recreational Development Sai Sha Road Widening

We're waiting for K Chan to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Chief Executive's Office,

I am writing to request the Office to reveal full details for the basis of the approval decision for this project, including the relevant meeting minutes, and justifications why this project deserved to be tabled for discussion in the Office and could be exempted from the regulation of the Environmental Impact Assessment Ordinance, given the devastating social and environmental impacts that the project will lead to due to its scale and limited benefits to solving the significant affordable housing shortage for the majority.

Yours faithfully,

Kwong Chan
