The purpose of this petition is to urge the Antiquities Advisory Board (AAB) to confer Edinburgh Place Grade I status as Historic Landscape of Cultural Significance and to pursue this to be declared a Monument. Edinburgh Place and its defining structures include Edinburgh Square, Queen’s Pier, the Dias, the City Hall complex and Memorial Garden, the Star Ferry and the Star Ferry Car Park.
Edinburgh Place and historical continuity: All happenings in this place have made the Edinburgh Place an indispensable historical and cultural landscape for Hong Kong people and has contributed to our local history. It serves as a set of “footprints” outlining the growth of the city. The relocation of the waterfront occasioned by reclamation makes this entire place more, not less, important as the landmark delineating a once-waterfront of historical significance. Edinburgh Place and its defining structures can only serve their function if they remain genuine in their form, construction, and location.
