     The Chief Executive has appointed six official and 30 non-official members to the Town Planning Board (TPB) for a two-year term from April 1, 2020, to March 31, 2022. The membership list has been published in the Gazette today (April 3).

     The Permanent Secretary for Development (Planning and Lands) has been re-appointed as Chairman of the TPB. Veteran member Mr Lincoln Huang Ling-hang has been appointed as Vice-chairman.
     A spokesman for the Development Bureau said non-official members of the TPB come from a wide range of sectors.

     TPB members are also appointed to serve on the TPB’s two planning committees, namely the Metro Planning Committee (MPC) and the Rural and New Town Planning Committee (RNTPC). The Director of Planning has been re-appointed as the Chairman of both the MPC and the RNTPC. Mr Wilson Fung Ying-wai and Mr Stephen Liu Ling-hong have been appointed as the Vice-chairmen of the MPC and the RNTPC respectively.
     "We also wish to thank the seven retiring members for their contributions over the past years," the spokesman said.
