The newly published GEO Pulication No. 1/2011 “Technical Guidelines on Landscape Treatment for Slopes” is to provide technical guidance on landscape treatments for man-made slopes and engineering works on natural terrain, with a view to enhancing slope appearance and making them ecologically acceptable and sustainable.  The guidelines are based on best current practice in Hong Kong, together with experience from overseas that warrants consideration in Hong Kong’s geological and environmental conditions.  This Publication supersedes GEO Publication No. 1/2000

The updating of the Publication was undertaken by a Halcrow’s team led by Ir Allan Watkins, Director of Halcrow China Limited, in collaboration with Mr Matthew Pryor and Dr Billy Hau of the University of Hong Kong.  This Seminar aims to introduce the new GEO Publication No. 1/2011.  Examples of landscape treatments on slopes with lessons learnt will also be discussed to illustrate the essence of the guidelines.
