Secretary for Housing Winnie Ho (centre on stage) briefs the organisations that are interested in the operation of Light Public Housing.

The Housing Bureau today held a session to brief organisations that are interested in the operation and management of Light Public Housing (LPH), as well as the tender process of the operation contracts.


Representatives from over 60 non-government organisations and property service agents attended the briefing session.


During the session, Secretary for Housing Winnie Ho said that drawing reference from the experience of transitional housing, apart from spearheading the projects’ construction, the Government will take the lead in the operation and management of LPH.


The bureau explained that operating organisations, commissioned through open tenders, must follow the criteria set by the Government to allocate flats, handle day-to-day tenancy matters, manage the projects’ facilities, provide social services to tenants and arrange the moving-out of tenants when a project ends.


Besides the tender price, the bureau made it clear that it places equal emphasis on the management capability, relevant experience and previous service performance of the tenderers as well as the operation and management modes in their proposals.


It noted that the Government plans to build about 30,000 LPH units in the coming five years, with the tendering exercises for the first four projects expected to start in the first quarter of 2024 at the earliest.


Such projects will be located at Yau Pok Road in Yuen Long, Choi Hing Road in Ngau Tau Kok, Tuen Mun Area 3A and Olympic Avenue in Kai Tak.


Contracts for projects of a larger scale will be split into smaller ones as appropriate, the bureau added.
