Land reclamation in front of Queensbay Mall, facing Pulau Jerejak - Photograph by a concerned Penangite

Bit by bit, relentlessly, large stretches of the coastline of the eastern half of Penang Island have been handed over or sold to property developers, who are planning mostly higher-end projects.

The strong fencing (albeit temporary) in the photo above may be seen as a metaphor for the way coastal stretches are now being hived off to private interests.

The latest is Pulau Jerejak, part of which is now going to be closely associated with Ideal Property and Uda Holdings.
