Yung Shue Wan Harbour March 2011
Welcome to Lamma!
What do you want to see?
Natural stone or vandalised concrete wall and unpainted metal fence?
There’s a beautiful garden…
But it’s difficult to spot.
Perhaps it’s the ruined foreshore?
Or the grey wall and concrete base?
The community notice board?
Or the ‘temporary’ path?
Or the monster clock?
The concrete nullah?
The graffiti?
The government land?
The tree cage?
The view from our restaurants?
Fenced and concreted areas?
The football pitch and play area?
The sea wall?
The pollution?
The dumping?
Or the drainage management?

  23. 23. What do you want to see when you come to Lamma? <ul><li>In March 1995, residents of Lamma wrote a paper entitled “A Different Future for Yung Shue Wan” in response to the government’s proposals for foreshore reclamation </li></ul><ul><li>In 2003, the government’s plan was defeated in what the SCMP described as “good news for Lamma.” In a poll taken at the time 95% of the 1,300 residents surveyed were against the plan. </li></ul><ul><li>At the time, planning department officials were to meet with campaigners to “hammer out the finer details of an alternative proposal” based on sustainable planning principles. </li></ul><ul><li>As of 2011, no visible action has been taken to improve Yung Shue Wan’s harbour. </li></ul><ul><li>Since 2007, the reclamation plan is once again back on the agenda at the District Council meetings, with the Chairman urging the CEDD to “upgrade the Phase 2 Reclamation on Lamma Island from Category “C” to Category “B” as early as possible (District Council Islands Meeting 14 th December 2009) </li></ul><ul><li>No public consultation has been made. </li></ul>
  24. 24. Next steps <ul><li>Living Lamma supports investment in the revitalisation of the Yung Shue Wan waterfront area </li></ul><ul><li>Any plan should involve the community at the outset, be based on principles of sustainability and seek to enhance the environment, provide better community facilities and make Yung Shue Wan more attractive </li></ul><ul><li>It should not be an excuse to pour yet more concrete, which could destroy forever the natural assets of the harbour </li></ul><ul><li>We would like to see a different planning approach, which opens the revitalisation of the Yung Shue Wan harbour to a design competition. Government should be open and transparent in its plans and the process and ensure effective communication with the various stakeholders in the community </li></ul><ul><li>We do not want a repeat of 2003, but we do want a beautiful harbour. Government track record of projects has been shocking in the last few years. We hope the future will bring improvement. </li></ul>
