Shek Pai Wan beach, Mon, Jan 9, 2012, 10am

Tung O Village head Mr. Chan (in red) invited some of Lamma's "green people" for a meeting.

Large piles of construction materials, sand & gravel, have appeared along the path on Shek Pai Wan Beach, alarming many visitors.

1 month ago, Lands Dept. put up "Get off Govt. Land!" signs (photo by Living Lamma)

River restoration works started by Mr Chan on his own land, paid by himself ($1 million so far). He's a retired Rainbow Rest. co-founder.

The stagnating river cut off from flowing into the sea, slowly silting up and growing over

Location of several beach cleanings in recent months, where the river is still blocked from entering the sea.

Mr. Chan is asking for support for his plans from local "green people", conducting a private tour.

Foundations for renovation/rebuilding of old houses owned by Mr. Chan

Construction material was stored on public land. Following some complaints Lands Dept. put up several of these signs. No enforcement yet.

Banks for the river restoration, centre of the river would remain concrete-free

River restoration work stopped by Lands Dept. as it would traverse Govt. Land

Humble abode for the outdoor meeting

7 renovated houses & 3 new Village Houses are planned (holiday flats, camping site, visitor facilities)

The plans and money are Mr. Chan's, not King Wong's or Baroque on Lamma's

Still beautiful....
