Government proposes to reconstruct Pak Kok Pier on Lamma Island
     The Government proposes to implement full-scale reconstruction of the Pak Kok Pier on Lamma Island to enhance the safety of pier users while boarding and alighting vessels. The extent of the area of foreshore and sea-bed affected is described in a notice published in the Government Gazette today (November 30).

     As the geographical location of the existing pier is prone to strong monsoons and sea swell, which makes it difficult for vessels to berth and causes inconvenience to pier users, the government proposes to reconstruct the Pak Kok Pier within an area of approximately 9 670 square metres of foreshore and sea-bed at the northern part of Lamma Island. The proposed works are scheduled to commence in the second half of 2019 and to be completed in 2021.

     The notice and its 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);

* Islands District Office (20/F, Harbour Building, 38 Pier Road, Central, Hong Kong); 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 sea-bed 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 January 30, 2019. The notice of such objection shall describe the interest, right or easement of the objector and the manner in which he or she will be allegedly affected.
