[Tsuen Wan, Kwai Chung and Tsing Yi team (TKT Team) community report]
On 1 October, the TKT team held its first district meeting. About 40 team members including Eddie met again after the election to discuss the possibilities of working in the district. Since the TKT team covers over two major areas, including two islands, and different areas have their own major concerns. We have divided into three groups, Tsuen Wan and Ma Wan, Tsing Yi, Kwai Chung and Lai King to have our further discussions.
During the meeting, the team raised up issues such as environment, people’s wellbeing, urban planning and so on. We have understood the need to carry out targeted community work in order to build an in-depth relationship with the community. We will also try our best to understand the needs of our neighbourhood as well as to understand the relevant policies and regulations.
After a round of discussion, we summarized the importance of community-driven policies. In the short term, the team will be the first to carry out the work of upcycling the banners which we collected before and well as to initiate the action group of Animal Welfare. We will also endeavor to explore and revitalize the public space in the district and explore the possibility of more space use with the neighborhood.
During the meeting, the TKT team discussed topics of interest such as aging population, private building maintenance, transportation, medical care, pollution, vacancy rate in the market, transformation of industrial buildings, animal rights, walled building, ethnic minorities, Village Representative Elections.
