First Public Land Sales on Cheung Chau, 1906

After completion of land surveying in New Territories, most land claim disputes were settled. Colonial Government also held the first public land auction on Crown Land on Cheung Chau.

In 1906 December, Mr. G H Wakeman, Land Officer of Government, announced a public auction for Lot 622, Lot 623 and Lot 624 on Cheung Chau,  would be held at District Land Office, Hong Kong, at 2:30pm on Friday on 4th January 1907.

Each lot is 735 sf., and had no right of access to the sea, no compensation would be made in the event of reclamation of the sea in front of it.

Today these lots are no longer in Hong Kong SAR Government Records.
