Yuen Long land set for development

May 19, 2022

The Lands Department will resume 379 private lots in Yuen Long for the implementation of the first phase of the Yuen Long South Development.


The lots, with a total area of about 19 hectares, will be resumed under the Lands Resumption Ordinance and the Roads (Works, Use & Compensation) Ordinance.


Land resumption notices were posted today. The land will revert to the Government on August 20.


The development comprises site formation and engineering infrastructure works for forming sites for the development of public housing, multi-storey buildings for accommodating brownfield operations, village resite areas, public open spaces, and sections of Environmentally Friendly Transport Services reserve.


The Yuen Long South Development is positioned as an extension of Yuen Long New Town.


According to the current proposed development scale, it will provide about 32,900 housing units for a new population of about 98,700, and will provide about 13,700 employment opportunities.


The enabling works under the first phase development are critical to the smooth implementation of the whole Yuen Long South Development.
