Hong Kong: Growing tide of anger at beach plan for Tai Po

Date of Release: 
Oct 29 2012

Conservationists said they will stage a mass protest and seek a judicial review to prevent the government from constructing an artificial beach at Lung Mei.

More than 10 green groups have joined forces to oppose the plan and will submit a petition to the government today, urging the chief executive or the director of the Environmental Protection Department to withdraw the permit authorizing the beach project in Tai Po.

The alliance will apply for a judicial review if the government fails to act on its petition.
