I REFER to the letter headlined, ''Too many hawkers in estate'' (South China Morning Post, November 10).

You may wish to know that the existing market was built some 20 years ago and many areas have to be improved to keep in pace with the times.

The existing market will be redeveloped and a new commercial complex with market stalls will be completed in early 1995.

The newly designed stalls, each with a larger size and adequate service room, ranging from eight square metres to 31 square metres to suit different trades, will improve the existing situation.

From time to time, anti-hawker operations are launched by estate staff both during and after office hours. Besides, goods causing obstruction to tenants are seized and hawkers prosecuted.

Everyday, staff are deployed to clean up the market and the surrounding areas used by stall operators and hawkers, and we will continue to deter illegal hawking activities and obstruction depending on availability of staff..
