First published in 1998, this volume is certain to be the definitive work about the practice of land-use and transport planning in Hong Kong. Dimitriou and Cook explore the historical developments, current issues and problems, policy and planning responses and new directions. Hong Kong has experienced remarkable economic growth as the ‘Gateway to China’ and its land-use has become a model for other cities in the region and for China as a whole.
