Sands China hearing on parcels 7 and 8 underway

(Macau).- The appeal hearing by Sands China on Macau’s government decision not to approve the company’s application for a land concession for the so-called parcels seven and eight in Cotai is underway, a source close to the process told Macau Business Newsletter.


he first court session took place just before Chinese New Year. The appeal was submitted in January 2011. Sands China had submitted a detailed development application to the Macau government to make use and develop parcels 7 and 8 of Cotai. However, in December 2010, the Lands, Public Works and Transport Bureau announced it would not be granting the lots of land to Sands and would keep the land as reserve.

Sands China applied to the chief executive for a review of the decision and filed an appeal with the Court of Second Instance, which is now being heard. Should the group win the appeal, it is still possible for the CEO to again deny the land concession based upon public policy considerations, according to Sands China.
