query about squatter occupancy survey
I am following up on my past research on Hong Kong squatter areas, and a key issue for me that I am hoping to find more information about is the Squatter Occupancy Survey conducted in 1984. Previously, only squatter structures were registered, but in 1984 all occupants of squatter structures at that time were registered, with the intention that only they would be eligible for resettlement in permanent public housing through clearance.
There is surprisingly, and regrettably, very little in the HKPRO or Kew files about this Survey, and I have been searching quite assiduously. I am wondering if anyone on this website might have personal experience with it, either through administering it, or through being registered by it. Any information offered would be very valuable, and the assistance would be either acknowledged with thanks in the planned book, or kept anonymous, depending on your preference.
