Study urged on reclamation impact
(04-22 17:29)

An alliance of five environmental groups has urged the government to carry out a comprehensive assessment on the impact of various reclamation projects in waters near Lantau.
The Save Lantau Alliance said reclamation projects near the island are seriously damaging the habitat of Chinese white dolphins.
They marched to the Legislative Council as the Development Bureau sought lawmakers' approval for a study on a proposed reclamation project at Sunny Bay in North Lantau.
Green Sense chairman Roy Tam said the government's piecemeal approach to conducting environmental impact assessments would inevitably underestimate the overall effect of such projects. --RTHK
