4. Tai Wan New Village

REF: TWNV0010210

The bins opposite the school are on a large concrete area. Could this space be put to better use? There are no recycling facilities here. The bin area could be landscaped to make it attractive, with designs perhaps from the school children. It would also be useful to have a children’s bike park here.

This area of government land was until recently a garden, tended by a local woman who has a child at the kindergarten. The garden was destroyed by officials from the Lands Department who pulled out all the plants and cut down the papaya trees, but left this sign behind.

Responsibility: Lands Department. Though it is illegal to cultivate government land, it is very sad that this garden was destroyed, while nothing is being done to deter dumping on Lamma. Surely a garden next to a school is a good thing.

Fencing around plants off the path at Tai Wan New Village near the kindergarten.

Responsibility: This is typical on Lamma. Fencing is often made of rusty metal, broken windows and old pipe. What can be done to make these areas look better? Who would be responsible?

Nice garden obscured by rusty metal and plastic piping used as a makeshift fence at Tai Wan New Village near house number 17.

Responsibility: What can be done to make these areas look better? Is this something a group like Living Lamma could sponsor? Presumably we need to know whether this is government or private land. If it is government land, can it be landscaped properly?

The bin area at Tai Wan Village. A large concrete space with benches, recycling bins on the opposite side of the path (see below). Can the bin area be redesigned so that the bins are together and the external area is landscaped to be attractive?

Surely benches should be placed next to landscaped areas, not next to the bins?
