Subdivided housing poses a multitude of health and safety risks to thousands of citizens who have no choice but to endure such conditions because of their economic limitations. Our recommendations, which include allocating more land for residential construction, an overall increase in construction plans for public housing, reform of public housing policies, and a crackdown on landlords, are meant to facilitate policy reform to amend the subdivided housing issue in Hong Kong. Our recommendations were based on archival research and interviews with Hong Kong's citizens that provided an accurate account of such areas affecting the subdivided housing issue as the shortage of public housing units, the lack of residential construction land supply, and high housing prices.
