Hyder to masterplan Hong Kong green areas

ACLA, the master planning division of Hyder Consulting, has been appointed to masterplan Hong Kong's green spaces.

The 'greening proposals' will study 11,310 hectares of urban Hong Kong. Then, plans will be developed to make Hong Kong's seven districts greener.

Hyder Consulting regional managing director, Steve Porter, said: "We are delighted to be entrusted by the Hong Kong Government with undertaking the most important greening project in Hong Kong.

"With the current rate of economic growth throughout China, green lobbies throughout the world should be intensely interested in Hong Kong’s approach to environmental management. Potentially, this project will set a benchmark for other cities to follow," he said.

The first step will be a 'huge' data collection and public consultation exercise.
