Abstract: The MBA project is an individual piece of research work and mainly examines the management of new town development in Hong Kong. The research can be called applied research as it is done with the intention of applying the results of its findings to solving specific problems currently experienced. In Chapter I, the background information on the historical development and characteristics of the new towns in Hong Kong is provided. The new town developments in the United Kingdom and Singapore are first dicussed in Chapter II and III. Then, the management structure and control mechanism adopted in the new town development in Hong Kong is critically analysed and interpreted in Chapter IV. Problem areas and critical issues which affect the progress and final outcome of new town development are also identified in the course of study. In Chapter V, the management of new town developemnt in Hong Kong is illustrated through a detailed account of the development of the most recent new town - the North Lantau New Town. The case study describes both the developmental process and the co-ordination and co-operation mechanism adopted to manage the complex and multi-disciplinary new town development projects. Information and data collected in the case study is used as a basis for discussion in Chapter VI and for drawing action-oriented recommendations in Chapter VIII with a view to improving the Hong Kong Government's performance in the management of new town development. Appropriate comparisons are made amongst different managment systems adopted in the United Kingdom, Singapore and Hong Kong. A conclusion on the MBA project is drawn in Chapter VII, with a discussion on the areas of concern that the top government official should play more attention.
