Advisory Committee on Countryside Conservation

The Advisory Committee on Countryside Conservation (ACCC) was established in July 2019.  Chaired by the Secretary for the Environment, the members of ACCC comprise scholars, professionals, rural/district stakeholders, representatives of green groups as well as representatives of relevant government departments.

The main duties of the ACCC are to advise on the priorities for the conservation and revitalisation works proposals to be carried out by the Countryside Conservation Office; as well as on the policy and matters relating to the overall administration, operation and funding approach of the Countryside Conservation Funding Scheme (CCFS).

To facilitate ACCC to consider the CCFS applications, the Vetting Subcommittee (VSC) was set up in October 2019 to vet the project applications and make recommendations to the ACCC.
