Court grants review of incinerator plan

RTHK Radio 3 News

The High Court has granted leave for a judicial review launched by four Cheung Chau residents over the government’s plan to build a waste incinerator on Shek Kwu Chau. Lawyers representing the group said the environmental impact assessment report on the multi-billion dollar project was defective.

But counsel for the government said the report had already explained that a pressing need existed for the construction of the incinerator, and there was no alternative other than building it on Shek Kwu Chau.
