Information Paper for the Legislative Council Panel on Housing

Follow-up to meeting on 3 May 1999

LC Paper No. CB(1) 1235/98-99(09)

Lighting in corridor of public rental housing blocks


The Housing Department's proposal to switch-off, during midnight, part of the corridor lighting in public rental housing blocks installed with Type A Security System was discussed in the above meeting. Thereafter, the Housing Department continues with the consultation process.


2 The Police has raised no objection to the proposal. And up to now, 13 out of 45 Estate Management Advisory Committees have indicated support to this energy conservation initiative. Nevertheless, the Housing Department has decided to shelve the proposal for the time being in view of the lukewarm support from the general public.
