Baptist University gets council backing in Kowloon land use battle

A council committee has joined the Baptist University's bid to block a government plan to sell a Kowloon Tong site for private housing. The housing and infrastructure committee of the Kowloon City District Council said it opposed the proposal to rezone the site on Renfrew Road from government, institution and community use to residential use.
