    On Tuesday's Backchat: plans to develop part of the Fanling golf course for housing.

    Government officials have rejected suggestions from some members of the Advisory Council on the Environment for a rethink on the proposals, saying the land is required to help ease the housing shortage. New questions are being raised about the need for the project, now that major plans are being drawn up for the Northern Metropolis.

    And earlier the Executive Council convenor Regina Ip, who’s a member of the Hong Kong Golf Club which leases the site, said says the new administration should consider scrapping the development plans which she described as not cost effective, and counter to government commitments to support the development of sports.

    After 9.15am, we’ll talk about the initial development plan of Eastern Street North open space in Sai Ying Pun, an area along the Central and Western District Waterfront Promenade.

    On Thursday's Backchat: the Chief Executive's final policy address of her five-year term. 

    Carrie Lam took more than two hours to deliver her last policy address on Wednesday in Legislative Council.

    The highlight was a plan for a massive 300 square kilometer "Northern Metropolis" next to the border with the mainland. As expected, there were also proposals to restructure the government bureaus, and a commitment to strengthen national security further.

    What did you like, or not like, in Mrs Lam’s blueprint?
