Professor Anthony Cheung Bing-leung
Secretary for Transport and Housing
Housing Needs and Long-term Housing Strategy
Engagement Evening, the public engagement series organized by Community Development Initiative, is honored to have Professor Anthony Cheung Bing-leung, Secretary for Transport and Housing, to be our keynote speaker.
The Long-term Housing Strategy Steering Committee has published a consultation document which outlines suggestions on how to address current housing problems. The document covers the assessment of housing demand and supply for the next ten years, the proposed ratio of public housing to private housing, shortening of waiting time for non-elderly one-person applicants above the age of 35 under quota and point system and a licensing scheme to regulate subdivided flats.
Does the proposal by the committee tackle the root of housing problem? As the waiting list of public rental housing exceeds 230000, can the government keep its promise to provide adequate public housing to grassroots? Would adopting the “supply-led” strategy lead to another form of supply-demand imbalance if the government ignores demand-side management?
