Thank you for your participation in our recent engagement sessions. We have just completed the initial stages of the engagement process for the Estate Upgrading Programme (EUP).


You have given us your views on what we can work on for the EUP, and these opinions have been helpful. We have heard the need for enhancing mobility and the desire for more opportunities to get together with residents within the estate. We will be guided by what we have heard from you and will be looking into how to implement your ideas in greater detail, while working around the technicalities of doing so.

15 September 2021 - Watten Estate Upgrading Programme 2021 Feedback

Dear residents of Watten estate,
 

Thank you for your participation in our recent engagement sessions. We have just completed the initial stages of the engagement process for the Estate Upgrading Programme (EUP).


You have given us your views on what we can work on for the EUP, and these opinions have been helpful. We have heard the need for enhancing mobility and the desire for more opportunities to get together with residents within the estate. We will be guided by what we have heard from you and will be looking into how to implement your ideas in greater detail, while working around the technicalities of doing so.


Other ideas, such as a hard court and an affordable F&B venue, will be subject to identifying a suitable location that is accessible and yet does not cause undue disamenities to nearby households. We will proceed on these items cautiously, and the EUP working committee members will be reaching out to some of you to refine our plans.


With your support, we are doing our best to make Watten a better home for you. We will be developing more concrete plans in due time and are looking forward to sharing them with you.

Yours sincerely,

A. Improve Walkability within Watten Estate

A1. Pavement Improvements

A2. Covered Drains

A3. Bin Markers

A4. Resting stations / shelters

Pavement improvements enable active mobility, which a lot of
Watten residents desire. It also helps people with disabilities
to travel around. However, these enhancements should not
invite non-residents into the estate.

B. Create Hubs for Social Interactions

B1. Hardcourt / Half court

B2. Community gardening

B3. F&B kiosk for Watten estate

Youths lack a spot to play in the estate and parents have
expressed desire for a safe play area for their children. These
are also potential areas for gatherings. However, a good
location is required so that it does not create too much noise
for nearby residents.

C. Amplify the charm and history of Watten Estate

C1. Floral landscapes

C2. Activities to build estate identity

Floral landscapes improve the tranquillity and ambience of
the estate. It makes Watten more pleasant to walk around
and be in. Watten residents love being in nature, and this idea
would potentially bring in more butterflies and birds.
However, there have been recent improvements in this area,
and this is not a high priority.
