MPPP rejects Sungai Ara hill slope project

The MPPP has rejected a proposed 22-storey tower project on the hill slopes of Sungai Ara.

The decision was made at a committee meeting on 19 June.

This news came from two different sources.

The project was rejected for the following reasons:

  • It did not conform with the Penang Island Structure Plan.
  • It did not have the required geotech report from the Penang high risk property development management committee.
  • It did not have a geological mapping report, a construction stability plan, and a site investigation report.
  • It did not conform with the hill land development guidelines 2008.
  • The planning permission application contradicted the conditions in the EIA report in 1992.

You can see the rejection letter here.

Well done to the MPPP for making a wise decision and listening to the people. It proves that such projects can be rejected.

Also congratulations to the residents group – a victory for people power.

There is of course another controversial hill slope project in Sungai Ara, now before the Appeals Board.

Most likely the rejection was due to the PR state government’s worry of any campaign by civil societies to save Penang’s hills ……………… just like the one to save Penang Hill many years back ………………..which brought the downfall of a previous BN Chief Minister.

Don’t take Penangites for granted.

Hills cannot be cut, sea cannot be reclaimed then our future generations have to content to live up in the trees and resort to eating bananas.

The 4 fingers are in which direction? This include no re-developement in existing build up areas so call “heritage” buildings – which just consist of just 1 old arch which I watch a documentary film in Middle East City where every every layman is shouting it is a heritage building just because it has a arch.

No hill slope problem in JB. The Johor Bahru’s tallest premium residential condominium of Setia Sky-88 will soon to be launched. A 55 storey luxury condominium valued at half billion ringgit set to have 600 units and two tower condominium will start at RM700 per sq ft, with unit size from 500 sq ft to 1500 sq ft. There will be the third block, which will be an office or commercial building. The Setia Sky 88 will be an iconic building in Johor Bahru. Comprising three iconic towers, with the third tower to be built under at a later phase… Read more »

Penangites should note that high property price is not only a problem in Penang. Only Johoreans earning SingDollar can afford new property ;aunched in JB. BN also cannot solve this problem. Shame on Chor Chee Heung.

Jalan Sungai Raya will be renamed as Lebuhraya Ong Eu Soon when LGE is removed from Penang ?

Oh, another fan for Ah Soon? Let’s not hold your breath on that. Every project should be judged on its merit and compliance. MPPP and the state go has made the call after due consideration, not necessarily because of Ah Soon’s constant critiscm.

Plenty of noise generated, but not all of it was correct. So let’s give credit where it is due.

i think spencer was being sarcastic there.
if ah soon is so influential by commenting, then tunglang also deserves to have Keng Kwee Lane converted to lebuh tunglang.

Ah Soon Kor should be happy with Pakatan government because Pakatan government listens and pays attention to the voice of the people, working hard for the betterment of the Rakyat, that is why we are having a dialog with the Pg CM soon, not like MCA/Gelakan/BN government you can bark till you die, what BN cares is big handsome com$$$$sion !!!

Rules are made by rakyat who are the real boss. If they do not have a decent house and yet you expect a caring government to swep them aside and put behind the bamobbo curtain and lalang? Otherwise Sinkapore and HK can go ahead and better than Malaysia many times over. HK has been rated as one of the world’s best city and HK cewek has the longest life span – 86.5 years longer than the Nippon. Living in trees and eating bananas can live and enjoy long long swing from trees to trees?
