Central and Western District

Welcome Message from Mr David LEUNG, JP, District Officer (Central and Western)

Welcome to the website of the Central and Western District Office.

Located in the north-western part of Hong Kong Island, the Central and Western (C&W) District is the earliest developed area in the territory since the 19th century. It has been the administrative and commercial centre of Hong Kong. The district also houses a number of famous historic sites well-liked by both locals and tourists, including the Central Police Station Compound (Tai Kwun) and the Central Market. In addition, the C&W District is a popular tourist spot.

In recent years, the Government, together with the C&W District Council, has strived to develop the harbourfront areas. At present, the sections from Admiralty to Shek Tong Tsui have generally been connected and opened for public use. Along this 3 200-meter long promenade, there are various attractions including the Tamar Park, Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park, WE Park at Fung Mat Road and the Central and Western District Promenade – Western Wholesale Food Market Section. The public may take a leisure stroll along the harbourfront or jog to keep fit, and parents may bring their children to enjoy the children’s play facilities. Moreover, the harbourfront of C&W District is one of the best places to view the sunset, with the Central Business District on both sides of Victoria Harbour as a backdrop. In future, the Government will continue to proactively open up the harbourfront space for use by the public.

Building a harmonious and prosperous community necessitates participation and cooperation from all sectors of society. We look forward to hearing views from organisations and individuals with a keen interest in serving the community, and working together to promote the sustainable development of the C&W District through cross-sector collaboration. Looking ahead, the C&W District Office will continue to work with the C&W District Council, district organisations and government departments, with a view to building together a thriving and harmonious community through district activities, the District Minor Works Programme and the District-led Actions Scheme.

Latest News in Central & Western District

Vacant Site at Former Berths 1 to 3 of Western District Public Cargo Working Area

In response to the aspirations of local residents and the District Council for making available the harbourfront site for leisure use, the Marine Department has released the former berths 1 to 3 from the Western District Public Cargo Working Area (WDPCWA) to provide more public space for use by the Central and Western district community.

The first stage of works for the three berths released from the WDPCWA has already been completed, and a 172-meter long and about 5-meter wide promenade along the waterfront edge has been opened for public use since 29 March 2019. The promenade is named the “Belcher Bay Promenade (waterfront section)”. Basic facilities such as railings, benches and lights are provided in this newly opened section of promenade, so that the public can enjoy the splendid harbour view safely. The promenade is located at the waterfront area in front of the Belcher Bay Park across Shing Sai Road and is adjacent to a public bus terminus. The Government will continue to carry out the second stage of works which covers the hinterland portion of the site. The public toilet near the bus terminus is expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2019, while the multi-purpose area and pet garden are scheduled to open in early 2020.

As for the community leisure farm at the rear area, the selected non-governmental organisation is proceeding with the preparatory work, including planning community involvement activities for the coming few months, with a view to reaching out to the community. The farm will adopt an open-style design in accordance with the requests of the Council and the residents, and is expected to open for public use in tandem with the completion of the second stage works.

Profile (Central and Western District)

The Central & Western District (C&W District) is one of the earliest developed areas of Hong Kong. While it is the centre for commerce, finance, entertainment and tourism, it is also home to the Government House, the Central Government Offices and the Legislative Council Complex. The C&W District is well-known not only for its business landscape, but also for its historical monuments such as the Western Market and the Court of Final Appeal building, which reflect the nostalgic look of Hong Kong in its earlier years.

The C&W District is sized 1 255 hectares, spanning from Mount Davis to the west to Admiralty to the east. It has a population of about 250 000. In recent years, the district has been undergoing various developments, including the commissioning of MTR West Island Line connecting to Kennedy Town, and various urban redevelopment and revitalisation projects in progress. These developments are expected to transform the district's outlook in the years to come.
