Thanks for this – hadn’t seen the comments.
Wasn’t quite as scary as I thought before checking it – had expected “Liberals” to be supportive of concreting every possible corner. Still, some curious ideas – not just the breakwater, but the idea of turning Cheung Sha into a “Sporty and Trendy Town”. Hmm…. 😡
Can’t some people like these figure that it’s best not to mess with lovely places like this? Some promotion could bring people to Cheung Sha, could then generate income through relatively low key places, like the Stoep and neighbours; also making for something else for visitors to do on Lantau, helping island as a whole.
They’re right, tho, to question weather here – not just northeasterlies; also southwest monsoon, monsoon rains, summer heat, winter chills…
And that casino idea – what’s that all about? Lantau really needs this kind of thing? – I don’t think so. Letter to the SCMP today suggested turning Cyberport into a casino – seems far better idea to me. Or maybe there’s some space near Selina Chow’s and/or James Tien’s homes?
(If a casino’s built: what happens if n when mainland China opens a few casinos of its own?)
