Physical constraint on expansion
Physical Constraint on expansion easting 10 and 12; northing 78 and 80

  • Steep relief:

  • limited flatland

  • River channel:

  • restrict further reclamation

  • Country park/Nature reserve:

  • environmental conservation


Ways to gain land
Ways to Gain Land easting 10 and 12; northing 78 and 80

  • Sea reclamation:

  • straight coastline

  • Leveling of hill slopes:

  • road cuttings at 1181, 1079

  • Conversion of farmlands:

  • Cultivated land near Prince of Wales Hospital


Modification on shing mun river
Modification on Shing Mun River easting 10 and 12; northing 78 and 80

  • straightened river channel:

  • straight shoreline

  • narrowed:

  • with reclamation

  • reduced and regular river discharge:

  • the building of the Shing Mun Reservoir


Modification on shing mun river1
Modification on Shing Mun River easting 10 and 12; northing 78 and 80

  • inflow of sea water:

  • reduced discharge

  • polluted river water:

  • industrial areas and residential areas


Drainage pattern

0678 easting 10 and 12; northing 78 and 80

lower drainage density

flowing northwestwards

dense vegetation cover

flow into reservoirs

protected within the country park

no settlements

less footpaths/less compaction

no pylons/electric wire towers

0878

higher drainage density

flowing southeastward

sparsely vegetated

flow across farmlands

not within country park

more settlements

more footpaths/more compaction

with pylons

Land acquisition
Land Acquisition easting 10 and 12; northing 78 and 80

  • leveling of slope because of presence of artificial slopes, proximity to foothill 

  • Kam Ying Court(155822)

  • Saddle Ridge Garden(156824)

  • Reclamation because of proximity to coast, straight shoreline 

  • Fok On Garden(145824)

  • Bay Shore Towers(150825)


Is ma on shan self contained
Is Ma On Shan Self-contained ? easting 10 and 12; northing 78 and 80

  • Ma On Shan is not much self-contained.

  • Residential accounts for the dominant land use (probably coupled with some retailing, small-scale commercial & recreational)

  • while other major land uses, such as industrial, business & large scale commercial are lacking.

  • Therefore there are not enough employment opportunities.

  • There are not enough social and public facilities, e.g. there is no hospital.


Human impact on stream flow
Human Impact on Stream Flow easting 10 and 12; northing 78 and 80

  • Deforestation leads to the reduction of infiltration

  • Farming irrigation at Mau Ping(160780) and Mui Tsz Lam(152788)

  • Water for domestic uses by the villagers of the settlements (161799)

  • Mining activities(163801)

  • Construction of catchwater and water tunnel (grid square 1579)


Environmental destruction
Environmental Destruction easting 10 and 12; northing 78 and 80

  • Soil erosion

  • Pollution of streams

  • Air and noise pollution

  • Affect channel flow because of

  • Deforestation

  • Quarry and cutting of slopes

  • Debris dumping

  • Transport of ores

  • Domestic wastes of the miners


Government measures
Government Measures easting 10 and 12; northing 78 and 80

  • incorporate it into Ma On Shan Country Park

  • change it into a cultural, historical recreational landmark

  • re-afforestation under the country park planning

  • restore scenic beauty

  • reduce soil erosion and pollution
