The HKBWS and various green groups have recieved reports of dumping of construction and demolition (C&D) waste in Lut Chau SSSI.
A visit was made by HKBWS and WWF-HK on 5 July 2011. C&D wastes were found at multiple locations, including the mangroves area. The case was then reported to the Planning Department, Lands Department, Environmental Protection Department and Agricultural, Fisheries and Conservation Department.
Some materials with the name of a contractor, who is doing some roadworks near fairview park, were discovered in the C&D waste dumped.
The concerned site is located in an area zoned "Site of Special Scientific Interest" ("SSSI") under the Mai Po Outline Zoning Plan. Government Land was involved. EPD has been following up the case and is actively collecting information.
