There is still no sign of reconciliation between the government and harbour conservationists over the controversial Central-Wan Chai reclamation after a second meeting yesterday. The government last night reiterated that there would be no more new reclamation projects on Hong Kong island other than those being carried out or already planned. But it did not refer specifically to the disputed Central reclamation. Christine Loh Kung-wai, the new Society for the Protection of the Harbour chairwoman, met Secretary for Housing, Planning and Lands Michael Suen Ming-yeung yesterday. Mr Suen had requested the meeting. The meeting was the first between the government and the society since former chairman Winston Chu Ka-sun left Hong Kong last month after a death threat against his mother and wife. Ms Loh said no substantial progress was made and fundamental differences remained between the parties, particularly on how the reclamation review should be carried out. 'We believe that the Central reclamation should be referred back to the Town Planning Board for review,' she said. As to the size of the reclamation, Ms Loh said the society would hire experts to conduct a study, hoping to provide some conceptual plans in the coming weeks. She said they would study whether the reclamation was needed to ease traffic congestion in Central and the other options available. The consultancy fee will be drawn from the $3 million in donations previously collected.
