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 Wednesday's Backchat: A tightening quarantine rules; and a new HK airport logistics park in Dongguan.
Hong Kong is going to scrap most quarantine exemptions, following discussions with mainland health experts aimed at securing a full reopening of the border.
Details have not been announced yet but Carrie Lam said exemptions will only be granted to people providing emergency services or daily necessities to Hong Kong.
In addition to that, patients who have recovered from Covid-19 and are ready to be discharged from hospital will need to spend an additional two weeks in quarantine at the North Lantau Hospital.
The government’s Covid-19 expert panel is in discussion on whether booster shots should be given, while Chinese drug maker Sinovac has applied to Hong Kong health authorities to allow children as young as three to receive its Covid jabs.
After 9.15am, we’ll be talking about a new logistics park in Dongguan that will be set up by the Hong Kong Airport Authority.
