Identical concessions to apply to LCSD urban and NT leisure venues

*********************************************************



The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) announced today (August 2) that concessionary arrangements for use of its leisure facilities will be fully aligned starting from September 1 this year.

A spokesman for the LCSD said that persons with disabilities and their minders, full-time students, senior citizens, schools and subvented non-governmental organisations would benefit from the new arrangements.

Currently, concessionary arrangements may differ according to whether the leisure facilities are located in the urban area or in the New Territories. This situation was inherited from the two former Municipal Councils, which have since been dissolved.

The major disparities in concessionary arrangements concern the periods when they apply.

In April last year, the LCSD aligned the concessionary arrangements for students using public swimming pools.

"To ensure fair treatment of the eligible user groups and to encourage them to make better use of our facilities, we will abolish the remaining disparities in concessionary arrangements with effect from September 1," the spokesman said.

"The aligned arrangements will in general adopt the more generous practice by extending the concessions now available in one area to the other," he added.

The spokesman said that under the new arrangements, persons with disabilities and their minders could enjoy the concessionary rates at all times when using leisure facilities in both the urban area and the New Territories.

Moreover, full-time students can enjoy the concession when booking holiday camps during non-peak hours.
