Public Housing Production Forecast of Housing Authority and Hong Kong Housing Society from 2021/22 to 2025/26(Note 1)

According to the forecast as at September 2021, the estimated total public housing production by the Housing Authority and Hong Kong Housing Society in the five-year period from 2021/22 to 2025/26 is about 106 900 flats, comprising about 73 100 public rental housing/Green Form Subsidised Home Ownership Scheme (PRH/GSH) flats and about 33 800 other subsidised sale flats (SSFs).

As compared to the last quarter, the yearly production in 2024/25 and 2025/26 has been adjusted mainly because the completion date of about 3 100 other SSFs has been revised from 2024/25 to 2025/26.

We review from time to time the public housing construction programme. The yearly production cannot be assumed as the average of total flat production, which is mainly subject to the land supply from the Government and the progress of individual projects. The actual completion may be affected by factors such as inclement weather, site constraints, progress of contractors, labour supply of the construction industry, external factors and compliance with the latest buildings requirements, etc. Therefore, the yearly housing production is subject to adjustments. We will continue monitoring the progress of projects to facilitate timely completion.
