A critical assessment of voluntary siting mechanism in dealing with NIMBYism: From Canada to Hong Kong

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters

Abstract

The voluntary siting mechanism as practiced in several Canadian provinces appears to be able to suggest a way by which sites for hosting LULU (locally unwanted land uses) are effectively and fairly selected. By examining the replicability of such a novel siting mechanism in the context of Hong Kong, we can understand better its merits as well as its limitations. It will be argued that there is strong tension between its replicability and its justifiability. Copyright © 2020 Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
