United Court transitional housing for grass-root families

Publish Date: 30-Sep-2020

As a measure to deal with Hong Kong’s long-term housing problem, HKSKH Welfare Council, who has always been concerned about the housing needs of the grass-root people, is developing a large-scale transitional social housing project “United Court” to provide under privileged families with a stable and habitable living space. The project is supported by Sun Hung Kai Properties and the Transport and Housing Bureau. In addition, the project also helps residents develop social and vocational skills. Residents would be assisted to build an integrated community through neighbourhood network and mutual help.

The site of the United Court is located in Tung Tau, Yuen Long. The estate, which is a ten-minute walk from Yuen Long Station, will provide 1800 units of different sizes to house one to two persons, three persons and to a four-or-five-person family. The rent will be capped at the level of rent allowance under the Comprehensive Social Security Assistance Scheme for each household, or under the rental market rate but not exceed 40% of the income limit for public housing. The project is expected to be available for occupation by the second or third season in 2022. People who have been waiting for public housing for three years or more are eligible to apply.
