Stop the destruction of Tai Tan, Hong Kong

48 Signatures Goal: 500

Set against a backdrop of mountains and with a spectacular view of the sea and Sharp Peak in Sai Kung Country Park, Tai Tan is one of the most beautiful villages in Hong Kong. It lies on a walking trail which is popular with weekend trekkers. It is also home to abundant wildlife such as porcupines, monkeys, wild boars, kingfisher birds, and is a regular haunt for one of Hong Kong's few sea owls. The approach to the village is a one-track lane lined with trees and a winding stream. Now this peaceful idyll is being destroyed. Recently bulldozers and diggers have moved in to build some 20 houses, granted permission under the Small House Policy. A field opposite the stream has been cleared and dug up and surrounding trees and bushes have been hacked down. We believe Hong Kong needs its country parks and villages like Tai Tan should be protected from those who are building houses for profit with no regard for the environment. Please sign our petition and spread the word if you feel the same. We also urge you to make your opinions know to Hong Kong Government, We will post an address and telephone number at a later date.

    Enough is enough - another bit of paradise destroyed. About time the Government set up some controls on how development takes place without destruction.
