Master Landscape Plan: Fisherman's Wharf?

(click on photo to enlarge)

Here is a detail of a map of a Master Landscape Plan for a section of a little island in the South China Sea's harbour front. The whole thing -- plus a couple of artist impressions of how it is supposed to look when it is done -- is on a panel standing right next to the ferry terminal.

The Master Landscape Plan starts a little north of the ferry terminal and extends up to Pak Tai football pitch. Just close by that lone HSBC ATM machine is the entrance to a "wood deck promenade". Further along are two Observation Piers, a Fishing Plaza and a pier for guidos. The already established restaurant row becomes a Food and Beverage Corridor.

All fine and dandy. Now if they could just find a way to encourage the fishing boats and other harbour users not to dump diesel, sundry liquids and other stuff into the harbour. . .

I do hope that your waterfront beautification programme works out better than the one at Peng Chau.

The folks at Lamma ended up blocking the government's proposals on their waterfront due to the botched job done here.

Thanks fo the note. Will do some more digging to see what else I can find.

Mind you, I have scoured through the Land Department and the Planning Department and come up with nought. A visit to the local District Council Office is in order. Cheers!
