Eco impact report to be revised

The Environmental Protection Department (EPD) today said the Civil Engineering & Development Department (CEDD) will submit a revised appendix to the environmental impact assessment (EIA) report for the San Tin/Lok Ma Chau Development Node.   In a press statement responding to the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society's (HKBWS) claim that the EIA report misidentified various bird species, the EPD said its preliminary understanding from the CEDD suggested the mismatch of photos and names of birds pointed out by the HKBWS was an editing issue that occurred when the CEDD’s consultant team compiled an appendix of the EIA report.    The EPD explained that the CEDD hired a professional environmental consultant to conduct an EIA study for the San Tin/Lok Ma Chau Development Node, which includes an ecological impact assessment.   When drafting the EIA report, the consultant submitted the ecological baseline survey results to the Agriculture, Fisheries & Conservation Department
