The average waiting time for a public housing flat in Hong Kong has edged upwards to 5.9 years, despite a long-standing Housing Authority pledge to allocate homes to applicants in no more than three.⁠

The wait, the longest it has been in 22 years, grew by more than a month in the third quarter of this year, according to official figures released by the Housing Authority on Thursday.⁠

As of the end of September, there were about 153,700 outstanding general applications for public housing from families and single seniors, and another 100,800 from non-elderly singles.⁠

In the third quarter of 2021, flats were allocated to about 2,800 general applicants, some 270 of whom were single seniors. The wait time for single elderly applicants in the third quarter was slightly shorter than the overall average, at 3.8 years, though that was still the longest it had been since 2000.⁠
