The government had announced in the 2022 Policy Address that it has identified sufficient land for providing about 360,000 public housing units in the coming 10-year period.
This also represented an increase of about 30,000 units over the previous 10-year period.
“Such supply mainly comes from New Development Areas and major development projects, site rezoning, and other projects including development of brownfield clusters, redevelopment of the Housing Authority's factory estates and part of the Siu Ho Wan Depot site topside development,” the government report read.
As for private housing, the Government will continue to create sufficient land to meet the private housing supply target of 129,000 units for the next 10-year period.
In this pursuit, the government plans to find sufficient land for providing at least 72,000 units in the coming 5 years.
