Land Registry releases new Street Index and New Territories Lot/Address Cross Reference Table

******************************************************************************************

     The Land Registry (LR) announced today (May 1) that compact discs for the 53rd edition of the Index of Streets, House Numbers and Lots in Hong Kong, Kowloon and New Kowloon (Street Index), and the 22nd edition of the New Territories Lot/Address Cross Reference Table (CRT) have been released. The discs facilitate searches of land records of urban and the New Territories properties by correlating property addresses, building names or lot numbers.

     The new edition of the Street Index features 368 amendments to the last edition, with nine new streets and 29 new lots/sections/subsections added. In the latest edition of the CRT, 1 035 amendments have been made and 19 new streets and 690 new lots/sections/subsections have been added.

     The new editions of the Street Index and CRT compact discs cost $370 each. Licences for using them on computer networks are also available for sale. The respective licence fees are $2,960 for computer networks linked to less than 50 terminals and $5,920 if linked to 50 terminals or more.

     Members of the public who wish to purchase the compact discs and the licences may submit a completed order form by post or in person to the LR's Customer Centre (19/F, Queensway Government Offices (QGO), 66 Queensway, Hong Kong) or the LR's Street Index and CRT Help Desk (Unit 1202, 12/F, One Kowloon, 1 Wang Yuen Street, Kowloon Bay, Kowloon) or deposit it in the drop-in box located near the Information Counter on the Deck Floor of the High Block of QGO.
