To help alleviate the “upstairs" needs

The URA’s past acquisition strategy has been more focused on compensation to owners. However, the tenants who have been determined to optimize the use of the concessionary system for ten years, mainly for tenants, are mainly considered to have started in Kowloon City in the past year. A total of more than 1,800 households were involved in a number of redevelopment projects. A large number of compensation cases were required to be dealt with in the future. In addition, the experience of acquisitions in recent years shows that the tenants are in the family.

It is learned that the URA is now receiving a certain number of public housing flats each year to facilitate the relocation of eligible tenants affected by redevelopment. The number of public housing tenants in recent years is increasing. , For the annual need to “freeze" a number of units, but also have quite a few words. The URA noted that the redevelopment projects initiated in recent years were affected by the number of tenants affected or more than ever before, but in the future, Of the tenants may not be allocated to the flats, and the increase in ex gratia payments can temporarily relieve the demand for PRH flats affected by redevelopment.

According to sources, another reason for raising the ex-gratia allowance is that the average waiting time for the latest public housing has increased to 4.6 years, 1.6 points more than the normal waiting time. He said that the ex-gratia allowance granted to tenants who had not been affected by redevelopment in the past was to assume that they would take an average of three years of rotation of public rental flats. During the period, they would need to find rental expenses for temporary accommodation. However, Such tenants are likely to spend two years’ rent to “go upstairs" to provide them with a more generous ex-gratia allowance or to assist them in offsetting the expenses.
