Kwu Tung North and Fanling North New Development Area - Visitor Centre for Long Valley Nature Park
New Development Area (NDA) project in the New Territories, including the Kwu Tung North (KTN) and Fanling North (FLN) NDA, form a core part of our multi-pronged land supply strategy in the medium and long term.
Being the largest contiguous freshwater wetland in Hong Kong, Long Valley is widely recognised for its high ecological value and environmental significance. As part and parcel of the KTN/FLN NDA project, CEDD will develop some 37 ha of land at the core area of Long Valley into a nature park for conserving and enhancing the ecologically important environment as well as for compensation of the wetland loss due to the KTN/FLN NDA development (the Long Valley Nature Park (“LVNP”)). A visitor centre will be constructed for the LVNP to help the public understand the ecological importance of Long Valley.
LVNP VC is located just next to LVNP which is the largest contiguous freshwater wetland. Together with sensibly planned spaces based on local standards and guidelines, LVNP VC will provide quality spaces for the public to understand the ecological importance of Long Valley. To harmonize the neighborhood, it is also the intention for designing a “green” LVNP VC by adoption of a variety of green features, such as renewable energy system with the use of photovoltaic panels and rainwater harvesting system for water saving.
