There exists a few community centres for teenagers and the elderly in Sham Tseng, but they are relatively unreachable for the estates not located nearby. I propose in the immediate future to allow mobile social service vehicles regularly reside in Hong Kong Garden, providing services including library services, clinical medication, etc. In the long run, I propose to consult the local residents and study the feasibility of establishing a permanent community centre.
Introduce community support services
Immediate future – Introduce community services vehicles
Numerous government and non-government bodies provide mobile community services, whose targets are the relatively remote areas. There is a postal service residing in Tsing Lung Tau and Sham Tseng every week. I propose in the immediate future to allow more mobile social service vehicles regularly reside in Tsing Lung Tau and Sham Tseng, providing services including health check, library, clinical medication, etc.
In the long run – Initiate the study of the feasibility of setting up a community centre
A special condition in the land grant of Hong Kong Garden requires the surrender of a piece of land to the government for
a primary school reserve. After years almost 30 years, the said school still has not been built. Our community slowly turns from being in need of nearby
children education, to nearby social services.
In the long run, I propose to initiate the study of the feasibility of establishing a permanent community centre, providing stable services.
