In view of the ever-growing problem of urban decay in Hong Kong, there is an urgent need for redeveloping derelict buildings. To overcome the inherent tribulations of redevelopment in the city, the technique of land readjustment (LR) has been proposed. LR is, by its nature, a kind of partnering project but its success depends on the homeowners' willingness to participate. This study aims to explore the acceptability of LR in Hong Kong through the analysis of the findings obtained from a structured questionnaire survey and focus groups. Based on the analysis results, policy and practical implications are drawn and discussed.
