Nominations open for Best Landscape Award for Private Property Development 2006
*******************************************************************************


To sustain the betterment of living environment in private property by outstanding landscape design and horticultural maintenance, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will organise the Best Landscape Award for Private Property Development 2006 to commend private bodies for their good efforts on greening.

The competition is co-organised by the Home Affairs Department, the Buildings Department, the Hong Kong Association of Property Management Companies, the Hong Kong Institute of Architects, the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors, the Hong Kong Institute of Landscape Architects, the Institute of Horticulture (Hong Kong), and the Professional Green Building Council.

An LCSD spokesman said, "the Best Landscape Award for Private Property Development was launched in 2004. The response was overwhelming with more than 100 entries received."

The LCSD has been committed to promoting the Green Campaign and each year, in addition to implementing extensive planting programmes in its parks to beautify the environment, the department has organised a wide range of activities to promote greening.
