No housing for military sites

July 12, 2018

There is no plan to release Hong Kong's military sites to develop housing.


The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government made the statement today in response to media enquiries about a person planning to ask the Central Government to release certain military sites for housing development.


The HKSARG said military sites are not an option for increasing land supply, and the status and nature of these sites are different to the city's other land.


According to the Basic Law and the Law of the People's Republic of China on the Garrisoning of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the use and management of military sites are matters of national defence for which the Central Government has sole responsibility.


All existing military sites are used for defence purposes with none left idle.


The HKSARG has no plan to seek any change to the use of these sites.
