Land supply has been an important issue to Hong Kong housing. To solve the problem, Frederick Lai has recommended to use the land of Plover Cove for housing. It has an area of about 1200 hectares. Based on a plot ratio of 2, it is estimated that the reclaimed land can provide 300,000 flats of 650sq.ft., plus 65 million sq. ft. for non-domestic use. The total land value can be up to $775 billion, assuming average land price at $3,000 per sq.ft. This amount would be sufficient to build all the necessary rails, highways, cross-sea tunnels, as well as site formation works and infrastructure construction.  Participants can understand the idea of using Plover Cove to solve shortage of the land supply for housing purpose in this seminar.

Sr Frederick Lai Chiu-cheong CFM, MHKIS, RPS(QS), HKIQEP is the author of the Crude Model of the Proposed Plover Cove New Town Head of Facility Management Department of a major bank in Hong Kong.Frederick likes hiking and has completed the Plover Cove Reservoir Country Trail several times. He started studying the possibility on making use of this huge piece of land for housing since November 2016. The ideawas supported and endorsed by Professor Chau Kwong-wing of The University of Hong Kong in early 2017 and be named as an option of land supply during a press conference of HKU Ronald Coase Centre in July 2017 which has drawn massive media coverage.
