To ensure that the planning of sports and recreation facilities can meet the needs of the public, the Sports Commission has established a working group to review the level of demand for various types of sports facilities.
On the advice of the working group, the Government engaged a consultant in mid-2017 to conduct a Consultancy Study on the Provision of Sports Facilities in Hong Kong with a view to reviewing the level of demand for various types of sports facilities and considering whether and how the current Hong Kong Planning Standards and Guidelines shall be revised to better meet the demand in the future. During the study, the consultant has extensively engaged the sports sector and other stakeholders such as District Councils in the form of group discussions and interviews. A telephone survey has also been conducted to collect public opinions. The study concerned is close to completion and we will take appropriate follow-up actions with reference to the recommendations of the study.
