Hunghom Peninsula - the Home Ownership Scheme property which narrowly escaped being pulled down before it was ever occupied - is to undergo a facelift. But it is feared the work will create almost as much waste as tearing it down would have produced. Secretary for Housing, Planning and Lands, Michael Suen Ming-yeung, told legislators yesterday the Building Authority was processing plans from developers, Sun Hung Kai Properties and New World Development. The renovation plans include adding lifts, combining flats, revising the internal layout, renovating external walls and altering car park and emergency vehicle access. The Environmental Protection Department said it was still awaiting a comprehensive waste management plan from Sun Hung Kai because it was 'very concerned about the environmental impact due to the construction waste generated in the alteration works'. Developers bought the estate from the government and intend to turn it into luxury housing. They decided not to demolish it after a public outcry.
