  • Hong Kong Island and Islands Development Office
  • Kowloon Development Office
  • New Territories East Development Office

Divisions[edit]

Hong Kong Slope Safety is a division within the CEDD that is responsible for Hong Kong's strategy on dealing with the safety of slopes, and making them look more natural [1]. The government have committed to landscape every existing slope upgraded under the Landslip Preventive Measures (LPM) Programme and every newly formed Government slope.

History[edit]

The department was formed in 2004 through a merger of the Civil Engineering Department and the Territory Development Department (TDD). The TTD was, in turn, formed in 1986 through a merger of the New Territories Development Department and the Urban Area Development Office.[2] The CEDD formerly came under the (former) Environment, Transport and Works Bureau.
