     To tie in with the Government's announcement that resumption of normal operation hours for its public services will commence on May 4 while maintaining a high degree of vigilance and adopting all necessary precautionary measures, a spokesman for the Transport and Housing Bureau said today (April 29) that the Independent Checking Unit (ICU) under the Office of the Permanent Secretary for Transport and Housing (Housing) will resume normal services starting from May 4. Its receipt counter and general enquiry counter at 8/F, Lung Cheung Office Block, Lung Cheung Road, Wong Tai Sin, Kowloon, will be reopened to provide services including inspection and copying services for Hong Kong Housing Authority building records and receipt of building control applications and documents as well as handling of public enquiries.
     The ICU will limit the number of service users at any one time in order to achieve social distancing. As an infection control measure, all members of the public entering the office of the ICU are required to wear masks and undergo body temperature checks. 

     Furthermore, the Appeal Panel (Housing) will resume hearings on terminations of tenancy agreements from mid-May. The Secretariat will inform the parties concerned accordingly starting from May 4.
