On Monday's Backchat, Lantau Tomorrow Vision.
Lawmakers will scrutinise a $500 million funding request in the Finance Committee for a study relating to the Lantau Tomorrow Vision Project when Legco resumes.
The project will involve massive reclamation for the future East Lantau Metropolis which can provide 1700 hectares of land, intended to address housing and land shortage problems in Hong Kong.
Critics say the construction of this project will drain the government's fiscal reserves. What do you think of this project? Is it a better option than redeveloping browfield sites? What about its cost, and ecological impact?

Join Noreen Mir with her choice of highlights from our Radio 3 programmes when the The Week on 3 returns to the airwaves. It's 30-minute review of some of the more outstanding and fun parts of our weekday shows, just in case you missed them the first time around. Radio 3 broadcasts a huge amount of content on several platforms and you can't be expected to catch it all, so every Saturday we'll select a few items for you that we think are worth a second outing, in The Week On 3.
Operation Santa Claus 2020 will officially launch in early November, but one of our main supporters, the Hong Kong Golf Club, will get the ball rolling early!

The entry fee is $500 per player, and all proceeds will go to OSC, the annual charity campaign run by RTHK Radio 3 and the South China Morning Post.
