The Task Force on Land Supply (the Task Force), comprising 22 non-official and eight official members appointed by the Chief Executive, was established in September 2017 for a term of one and a half years from September 2017 to February 2019. The Task Force is made up of members from various professional disciplines and sectors, including planning, engineering, architecture, surveying, environment, academia, think tanks, social services, housing development and district administration.
The Task Force recognises Hong Kong’s land shortage problems at present and for the long term. It is making a macro review of the sources of land supply, evaluates land supply options, and has launched a public engagement exercise to engage the community in discussions on the pros and cons of different options and their priorities. The objective of the Task Force is to achieve the broadest consensus and draw up a broad framework of recommendations on the overall land supply strategy and a prioritisation of different land supply options for submission to the Government, based on the opinions collected in the public engagement exercise.
