Key Considerations and Enhancement Proposals

Taking into account comments and views from the engagement workshops and results of the public opinion survey, we have evaluated the preliminary options based on planning, design and operational considerations, legislation as well as environmental constraints in order to formulate a shortlist of enhancement proposals, identify potential sites and appropriate mode of operation for each proposal. The sites for these proposals should create synergy with existing natural or built resources, and should be compatible with existing uses in the surrounding area. It is essential that these proposals would not cause any unacceptable and irreversible environmental impact. With regard to design, the proposals will use eco-friendly materials and be compatible with their surroundings without adverse visual impact. These proposals will be operated by either the Government or private operators / non-governmental organisations taking into account the merits of individual proposals.

After studying the planning, design and operation considerations of the proposals, four enhancement proposals were shortlisted. They are:
