Greening the urban areas - Planting Ceremony of the Kwun Tong Greening Master Plan
April 1st, 2011 - Civil Engineering and Development Department, HKSAR (CEDD) held a planting ceremony for the greening works in Kwun Tong District under the Greening Master Plan (GMP). Since the commencement of the works in September 2009, about 4,500 trees and 1,100,000 shrubs have been planted in Kwun Tong under the GMP initiative and the local environment was significantly improved. ACLA is glad to be the lead consultant of this project.
By considering the character and needs of an area, a GMP seeks to define the overall greening framework of the area, and serves as a guide for all parties involved in planning, design and implementation of greening works. In addition to identifying suitable locations for planting, the GMP established the greening themes and proposed suitable planting species.
