Stakeholder engagement is an essential process for DSD to promulgate updates of our services and new developments to our stakeholders. It is also an effective way to collect our stakeholders’ views for improving our services. In 2013-14, we have organised a wide range of stakeholder engagement activities.

Public Engagement Activities of DSD Projects

DSD believes that effective communications with stakeholders is vital to the successful delivery of our projects and the highlights of 2013-14 are as follows.

Feasibility Study on Relocation of Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works to Caverns

To intensify the public’s understanding of sewage treatment works in caverns and the relocation project, we adopted an innovative ”Experiential, Multi-platform and Iconic” approach in conducting various public engagement activities. The Stage 2 public engagement exercise was conducted from July to October 2013.

Kai Tak River Improvement Works

Since commencement of construction works in 2011, we have maintained close dialogues with the stakeholders, including Wong Tai Sin District Council, the schools and residents in the vicinity, with a view to understanding their concerns and minimising the nuisance to the locals.
