Town Planning

Future Developments

Development works within the Fanling/Sheung Shui new town areas have largely been completed. Future planned developments mainly include:

  • Widening of Fan Kam Road;
  • Proposed Sheung Shui to Lok Ma Chau Spur Line (One of the East Rail Extension Lines);
  • Proposed public rental housing at Chong Tsin Leng; and
  • Proposed regional indoor stadium near North District Government Offices.
Looking Ahead

In the past two decades, Fanling/Sheung Shui areas have been developed from primarily a rural market town to a strategic new town with a full range of facilities. The rapid growth and changes experienced would be an important basis to plan for the future. In anticipating for further population growth and economic developments envisaged in the whole Territory, active planning is needed to pave the way forward.

In early 1998, the "Planning and Development Study on North East New Territories" has been commissioned to examine, amongst other things, potential strategic growth areas adjoining the existing new town. Upon completion of the study, comprehensive land-use review will be instigated to materialise new planning opportunities and re-align different forms of present developments. Planning of the new town will continue to reflect the aspiration of the community in aspects of physical development, environmental concerns and sustainability.
