Urban renewal policies lower quality of life for residents

Your editorial 'Balance must be struck over urban renewal' (December 28) fails to get to the nub of the matter.

Keeping up appearances

As Hong Kong's historically minded repeatedly try in vain to save even the ugliest of its long-standing man-made structures, our old rival to the south has become a relative beacon of preservation.
