License to Build: Town Planning Legislation in Hong Kong?  
Product Ref: 05/230C Company: N/A

Product Type: Case Industry: Real Estate

Related Product(s): Teaching Note
This Case investigates the government¡¦s decision-making process in revising the Town Planning Amendment Bill 2003. Aimed at striking a balance between streamlining procedures and enhancing public participation in the town-planning process, the revision injects more variability into the plan making and application process. The amendments thus increase uncertainty, since special interests and public administrators will have greater discretion over determining the type, pace and pattern of development at the district level. The effect of increasing uncertainties and delay in developments are identified. The findings provide a factual base for policy and business strategy discussions.
Functional Area : Economics & Business Policy

Issues: Overview of the town planning process in Hong Kong; advantages and disadvantages of town planning, proposed amendments; effects on developers.
Length: 21 pages Country: Hong Kong SAR
