Hong Kong Brownfield Study, WWF

WWF Hong Kong released a study today showing a 90% increase in brownfield applications over the last 15 years. Hong Kong's planning strategy should consider the practicality, and in many cases legality, of retaining current uses, especially given recent conversions for residential development of Green Belt and areas of potential environmental value. WWF's report illustrates that 78% of brownfield sites occupy land outside "Open Storage" zones and are in many cases inconsistent with surrounding land uses.
