A group of leading tycoons wants a meeting with Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen to urge him to improve planning in Victoria Harbour. Leaders of the Harbour Business Forum, a coalition formed by 120 leading companies and business groups, have decided to ask Mr Tsang for a meeting after the Lunar New Year to raise their concerns over developments along the harbour front. Hongkong Bank chief Vincent Cheng Hoi-chuen, and leaders from Standard Chartered Bank, Jardine Matheson and the Swire Group are understood to be among those who would attend. The group was formed in June last year. Its patron members also include Sun Hung Kai Properties, Wharf (Holdings), Citic Pacific, the Kadoorie Group, the Kerry Group, BNP Paribas and the Lai Sun Group. Paul Zimmerman, an executive committee member of the coalition, said a meeting was being arranged and the group would make a presentation to the administration. 'Their message is to ask the government to protect our harbour, to have some good planning and to get somebody to be in charge of the harbour. The meeting will not be about the development of a particular site.' A source from the business coalition said the companies were mainly concerned with huge 'ground scrapers' - commercial developments on the new Central reclamation area. Some other corporations were also worried that the new government headquarters on the Tamar site could be too large. Up to 18.73 hectares will be reclaimed off the Central waterfront when work is completed, with commercial sites taking about five hectares. A cluster of commercial buildings up to 10 storeys high will be built near Statue Square. 'We will be more vocal if the chief executive ignores our demands for good harbour planning,' Mr Zimmerman said. The coalition is concerned over the lack of a long-term vision for the design of the harbour and harbourfront districts. It is also unhappy over the lack of co-ordination between 17 government departments involved in harbour developments. Secretary for Housing, Planning and Lands Michael Suen Ming-yeung and his bureau's permanent secretary, Rita Lau Ng Wai-lan, made a presentation on the Central reclamation plan to leaders of the coalition in September. But they failed to secure the coalition's support. If a meeting takes place next month it would coincide with two other harbour events. A Legislative Council subcommittee will begin meeting in February to review planning of the Central waterfront, including the Tamar site. The Town Planning Board will also examine a request from lawmaker Kwok Ka-ki to turn the Tamar site into a park.
