The site in question is the most important dragonfly habitat in the territory, and its ecological importance is second only to that of Mai Po and Inner Deep Bay Ramsar Site (internationally important). The government was bureaucratic and procrastinated in the past ten-odd years, so much so that it failed promptly to reach an agreement with the developer. As a result, villagers there have brought the land in question under cultivation without authorisation and thus caused some damage there. It counts as a piece of good news that the government has made the non-in-situ land exchange decision, albeit belated.
