The extent of the area of foreshore and seabed affected is described in a notice published in the Government Gazette today (June 29).

     The proposed works will collectively occupy a footprint area of less than 0.7 hectares within an area of approximately 66 hectares of foreshore and seabed in the Brothers Marine Park. The proposed works are tentatively scheduled to commence at end-2018 for completion in 2019.

     The notice and the related plan are posted near the site. The plan is also available for inspection at:

* Survey and Mapping Office of the Lands Department (23/F, North Point Government Offices, 333 Java Road, North Point, Hong Kong) (where copies can be purchased on order);

* Tuen Mun Home Affairs Enquiry Centre of the Tuen Mun District Office (2/F, Tuen Mun Government Offices, 1 Tuen Hi Road, Tuen Mun, New Territories); and

* Lands Department's website (www.landsd.gov.hk) under Government Notices.

     Any person who considers that he or she has an interest, right or easement in or over the foreshore and seabed involved may submit a written objection to the Director of Lands, 20/F, North Point Government Offices, 333 Java Road, North Point, Hong Kong, within two months from the above-mentioned date, i.e. on or before August 29, 2018.
