Southern District Signature Project Scheme

Southern District Signature Project Scheme
Project Information
The Chief Executive introduced the Signature Project Scheme in his 2013 Policy Address.  Under the Scheme, a one-off provision of $100 million will be earmarked for each District Council to support implementation of one to two Signature Projects which can highlight the characteristics of the district or address local needs with a visible and lasting impact.

After detailed discussion, the Focus Group on Southern District Signature Projects of Southern District Council suggests adopting: (1) “Provision of Ophthalmic Examination Service” and (2) “Provision of Shuttle Bus / Rehabilitation Bus Services” as the Southern District Signature Projects.  Details can be found in the following publicity leaflet.  The period of the second stage public consultation is from 1 October 2017 to 25 October 2017.
