Affected by the development of the northeastern New Territories, the government provided multiple plots of land for restoration to allow the affected villagers to resume farming.

The Kwu Tung North Villagers Alliance stated that the Alliance has received notifications from affected farmers in the Fanling North Development Area, stating that the Development Bureau has notified them that they have been allocated the re-cultivation land in Ma Tso Lung Village, Kwu Tung, and will sign a re-cultivation agreement with Fanling farmers on March 10. protocol.

However, the Alliance stated that the farmers affected by the previous project have been farming in Ma Tso Lung Village, but have not received any contact from the government department so far, questioning the development bureau’s improper arrangements, which is very different from the government’s promise to assist the affected farmers in rehabilitating properly. .

The coalition criticized that the Development Bureau never mentioned in the special farmland restoration plan that it will allocate the restored farmland in Ma Tso Lung Village.

The alliance pointed out that Mr. Zhao’s farm originally had nearly 60,000 square feet of farmland, but due to the impact of the previous project, nearly 40,000 square feet of farmland was reclaimed by the government for development in the middle of last year, and the remaining farmland will also be reclaimed in two years.

They criticized that Mr. Zhao, who belonged to the project affected in the early stage, has never been consulted, and the authorities even arranged for farmers in Fanling to cross the district to re-cultivation in Kwu Tung, but the farmers in Kwu Tung were not re-planted in the original area.



The Alliance pointed out that many farmers in the two development areas are also facing the same situation. For example, the Ma Bao Bao community farm in Ma Shi Po Village, Fanling criticized that there is no suitable rehabilitation arrangement and Hong Kong's agriculture will quickly disappear.

Ma Tso Lung Village was suddenly zoned for re-cultivation

The Alliance emphasized that the Development Bureau has never mentioned in the "Special Agricultural Land Rehabilitation Plan" that it is about to allocate the restored agricultural land in Ma Tso Lung Village.

They described this as completely depriving farmers of their right to know, and the Development Bureau has never consulted district council members, local people and the public about the use of farmland in Ma Tso Lung Village for re-arable land.

The coalition suggested that the bureau should immediately provide farmers affected by the development in Kwu Tung North with all the information on the reclaimed land in Ma Tso Lung Village.
