Hong Kong and Shenzhen people "generally agree" with the plan to develop the Lok Ma Chau Loop.
The Government announced today the results of the planning and engineering study on the loop's development.
It was jointly commissioned by the Hong Kong and Shenzhen governments in June 2009 to formulate proposals to develop the loop for higher education as the leading land use, complemented by high-tech research and development, and cultural and creative industries.
Two rounds of public engagement have been conducted, and the Government said comments received in Hong Kong and Shenzhen during the stage-two survey showed the public "generally agree" with the development proposals.
According to the Recommended Outline Development Plan, the loop will be developed into a hub for cross-boundary knowledge and technology exchange, under the principle of sustainable development.
An attractive and vibrant environment conducive to interactions amongst higher education, high-tech research and development, and cultural and creative uses will be created, it said.
The proposed development will be compatible with its surroundings and has been designed to minimise environmental impact.
