13 September 2014 - Following objections from different parties including the Transport Department, the Town Planning Board has rejected the application for the construction of a private vehicle access road to “17 Bowen Road” in Mid Levels.
'Alliance For a Beautiful Hong Kong' objected the proposal and collected over 3,000 signatures against the application, saying the proposed access road would lead to irreparable visual and environmental damage.
Additionally, the Alliance continues to criticize the Transport Department and the Planning Department, showing contempt for allowing a developer to build a hotel on “27 Lugard Road” earlier this year. They have appealed to the Transport Department to refuse to issue vehicle permits for the developer in the hope of protecting the rights of pedestrians.
