Mr Lawrence Y C CHAU



Fellow Members, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Welcome to HKIP Website!

The purpose of the Hong Kong Institute of Planners is mainly to ensure professional standards and promote good planning. The two purposes are closely related. In addition to continuing professional development events, we strive to contribute to the sustainable development of Hong Kong through our planning commentaries.

There are many significant planning issues facing Hong Kong. The community has to face them together, bringing enhancements to our quality of life. HKIP is part of the community. This year is our 40th Anniversary and our vision is to outreach to all walks of life to discuss and innovate on planning solutions. We have kick started the "Friends of Planners" Programme, which targets anyone in Hong Kong with an interest to know more about town planning in Hong Kong. We hope that there are ample opportunities to collaborate with our friends in the future. We also organize radio programmes, with active participation of our experienced members who will share their in-depth knowledge on the planning system, planning for housing, sustainable development and so on.

Thanks again for visiting us and looking forward to meet you in our coming

Lawrence CHAU
President, HKIP
