Use of Fund

Funds are made available for each Estate Management Advisory Committee (EMAC), in accordance with their size, for the EMAC to implement its works. The estate Housing Manager / Property Service Manager is the controlling officer of such funds.

EMAC funds may be used for the following purposes: 

The works and activity items recommended by EMAC should be acceptable to the community in and around the estate and will not generate significant recurrent costs. They should also comply with existing legal and planning requirements and will not duplicate with those works already covered in Housing Department's programmes.

In drawing up a programme of works, EMAC should assess what can reasonably be achieved within a year and with the resources available, and prioritise the works items. Works items proposed should be implemented within the same financial year as far as practicable. Very small items should be handled through minor maintenance works.

As regards estate community activities, EMAC is allowed to co-organise with other organisations (including government departments and non-governmental organisation) or organise on its own.
