Request for Statistics on Enforcement of Street Obstruction

Currently waiting for a response from Food and Environmental Hygiene Department, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Food and Environmental Hygiene Department,

The problem of perennial occupation of pedestrian passageways by goods and illegal hawking in public places by shop operators around the Shui Wo Street Municipal Services Building (瑞和街市政大廈) has not been properly tackled for a long time. For example, shop operators and hawkers always block the lanes between buildings leading to Shui Wo Street and leave their goods/wastes on roads. The District Environmental Hygiene Superintendent, Mr Leung Yat King (梁溢景先生) is responsible for combating street obstruction in Kwun Tong, works at Shui Wo Street Municipal Services Building, sees the problem everyday but keeps a blind eye and colludes with his colleagues in return for an easy life in his office.

I would like to know the “monthly” number of fixed penalty tickets that were issued by FEHD and the number of interdepartmental operations that FEHD involved in the past 12 months (August 2018 – July 2019) to tackle the street obstruction problem around the Shui Wo Street Municipal Services Building.

Also, please confirm if FEHD is responsible for handling shop operators’ goods/wastes left on roads outside their shops in Kwun Tong.

Yours faithfully,

Jimmy
