Fanling Golf Course development / Homo-naledi discoveries


Fanling Golf Course development / Homo-naledi discoveries

 On Friday's Backchat, we're discussing plans to build public housing flats on the Fanling Golf Course.
The Planning Department on Monday temporarily rezoned a part of the golf course in Fanling from "residential" to "undetermined".
But the Development minister Bernadette Linn made clear that the government still plans to build public flats on a part of the golf course, despite the change.
She added that she couldn't give a concrete timetable for the development and said the original goal of 12,000 homes may not be met.
The change comes as the golf club, is scheduled to host the Aramco golf tournament in October. It has also been shortlisted for hosting the Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf Tournament next year.
After 9:45am, we'll find out more about an extinct human species that may have been the first to bury their dead.
