Hung Lau Proposed Monument for 1 year

March 13, 2017

Historic building Hung Lau in Tuen Mun has been declared a Proposed Monument for one year, the Development Bureau announced today.


Under the declaration gazetted today, the building will be subject to stringent controls under the Antiquities & Monuments Ordinance.


Any works to demolish, remove, obstruct, deface or interfere with the Proposed Monument are prohibited unless a permit is granted by the Antiquities Authority.


The bureau said the declaration allows time to discuss possible preservation options with the owner, and enables the authority to consider whether the historic building should be declared a Permanent Monument.


The Antiquities & Monuments Office will soon inspect the premises and assess the impact of the recent works done on it.
