About the Site Visit
The CPD will take us through the process of community driven rescue of Pok Fu Lam Village, a cultural landscape threatened by redevelopment. Several projects of Pokfulam Village are part of this larger initiative, including the restoration of House 87 and the revitalization of the former Dairy Farm Senior Staff Quarters into Pokfulam Farm. The tour will cover a visit to the restored House 87 and a brief walk to the former Dairy Farm Senior Staff Quarters.
