HC to hear judicial review bid over new runway

The High Court has accepted an application for judicial review over the government’s plan to build a third runway at the airport.

The application was jointly submitted by a member of the Land Justice League and a Tung Chung resident.

They are seeking to overturn a decision by the Environmental Protection Department to approve an environmental impact assessment report and issue a permit for the expansion project in November last year.

The Executive Council gave the final go-ahead for the HK$140 billion project in March.
