Public Open Space becoming more of an issue in Hong Kong

The South China Morning Post had articles and editorial on Public Open Space provided by Developers.

The subtext to the controversy over the lack of public access to open space on private or commercial estates is a familiar one – suspicions of greedy developers, in collusion with the government, exploiting valuable public space for their own use. This is probably not the case, but the way developers have been able to camouflage these premises for private use is a clear sign that the system has not worked in the public interest. …

Also discussed in another article was the prohibitive cost of residents maintaining Public Open Space within their compounds. Discussion occurred about various developments in HK that had reduced access to Public Open Space in compounds due to high cost of maintenance and nuisance issues.
