Fanling, Hong Kong

Background

Fanling is one of the “new towns” in Hong Kong’s New Territories which has enjoyed steady population growth and developments over the past two decades.  The environment in this new town is well harmonized with a mix of residential, commercial, industrial, social, community and recreational facilities.  Trading activities have flourished in the past decade taking full advantage of the strategic location as the gateway to Mainland China and good accessibility.  Commercial-office buildings have also been developed to provide commercial floor spaces to meet the needs of the industry.  Amidst the busy economic activities, the hills and mountain ranges form a unique backdrop of this new town, which has about 6 million square feet of land reserved for local and district open space uses for both active and passive activities.  Major active recreational facilities in this new town include the Hong Kong Golf Club, the North District Sports Ground, the North District Park, and the Wo Hing Indoor Recreation Centre.

The new town consists of an extensive road network with connecting highway and major roads in addition to the modernized MTR East Rail Line (Fanling Station and Sheung Shui Station) and Lok Ma Chau Spur Line.  The strategic highway network connects major town centres in the New Territories, including Fanling, Sha Tin, Tai Po, Sheung Shui and Yuen Long, and provides linkage to cross-boundary facilities and distributor roads.

Future Developments

Fanling has been identified as one of the New Development Areas which are under planning in the North East New Territories New Development Areas Study commissioned in mid-2008 for completion in 2011.  The Hong Kong Government has extensive plans to further develop this new town into a sustainable, environmental friendly, energy efficient, people oriented and obstacle free community.  Comprehensive village layout plans have been prepared for the village areas of Fanling and existing roads are being upgraded and new roads are being constructed to meet traffic growth.
