The Land, Public Works and Transport Bureau (DSSOPT) claimed that the opinions of the Urban Planning Committee are valuable and are being considered by the government.
Lawmaker Si Ka Lon queried the government about the proposed developments for reclaimed land Zone B, questioning the government’s attitude towards the Committee after the Secretary for Transport and Public Works, Raimundo Arrais do Rosário admitted that the draft of the plan was incomplete when introducing it to the Committee.
During the meeting with the Committee, the Secretary reiterated that government construction projects do not require the approval of the Committee, but he also noted that the government welcomes opinions from different parties.
In January of this year, Secretary Rosário pledged to provide more information to the Committee as soon as his departments were able to gather further details from other parties.
The government is planning to build a total of seven government office buildings and 2,000 housing units on the east side of Zone B, located opposite MGM Macau on the Peninsula.
According to the written reply by the DSSOPT, it is currently compiling the planning conditions for Zone B, adding that discussions with government departments about their needs will be held after the compilation is completed.
Meanwhile, the lawmaker also questioned why the planning progress was taking a long time.
DSSOPT explained that the compiling of planning conditions is legally required to include and consider a number of factors and range of information, such as the differentiation between the zone and the road entering the zone, the function of the land, the extensiveness of the land coverage, the largest plot ratio, as well as the allowed height of the buildings to be constructed on the land.
