The work team of the JO provides a one-stop service to the public with both the legal authority of the FEHD and the building survey expertise of the BD. To improve the overall efficiency and enhance communication between JO staff of the two departments, the JO has relocated its four district joint offices in Sha Tin District, Sai Kung District, Tai Po District and North District to the new office. The Hong Kong, Kowloon, New Territories West and New Territories East Regional Joint Offices are each led by a Superintendent from the FEHD and a Senior Professional Officer from the BD in a dedicated manner following reorganisation, with staff of the two departments working in the same office and strengthening mutual co-operation and communication to help speed up the processing of cases, with a view to achieving greater synergy in the operations and providing better services to the public."
