Starting from January 2020, we have consulted different stakeholders for their opinions regarding the pier reconstruction project via various focus group meetings, including District Council members, Cheung Chau Rural Committee, Cheung Chau resident organisations, trade organisations, relevant committees of the Marine Department, ferry operator, motor boat and tugboat association, users of typhoon shelter such as fisheries associations and barrier-free facilities concern groups. Besides, to help Cheung Chau residents and the public understand more about the proposed project, we have posted promotion leaflets and opinion forms to all Cheung Chau households, set up display panels at Central and Cheung Chau Ferry Piers, broadcast video on ferries and set up webpages to introduce the proposed project, and to widely collect opinions from Cheung Chau residents and the public.
The feasibility study is anticipated to be completed in 2021. We will continue to hear the public's views. In the next stage, we will commence the investigation and design for the proposed reconstruction of Cheung Chau Ferry Pier, as well as statutory procedures, with a view to commencing the works as early as possible.
