Public hearing for Seberang Perai Local Plans coming up


The public hearing for the draft Local Plans for Seberang Perai Utara and Seberang Perai Tengah will be held on 26 November – 9 December 2013 at the Mawar Room at MPSP on the mainland.

But what has happened to the Seberang Perai Selatan Local Plan? Apparently, there is only a “mesyuarant jawatankuasa bantahan awam” to hear public objections to any development project. But are the objections by neighbouring residents heeded?

As for the draft Penang Island Local Plan, five years after its approval by the MPPP, it has still not yet been put up for public display and feedback.

Why don’t you shut up and let PR win the Federal gomen first? I can’t see there is problem for you to rent a room/house. Look at the main objective. If possible, cheat first and win GE then change. Even though I’m not so sure if PR will ‘change’ for better. I don’t think the chinese will have anything to lose when supporting PR. Even PR implement hudud law, the chinese have nothing to do with the law. Is that clear?

True. We need a fresh change to ‘hard reboot’ the federal government in GE14.
Already too much wastage (from top to bottom) with bloated civil service and requires RM4 million daily advice from ‘consultants’ to come out with flawed policies like the Education blueprint.
No harm to try out a disruptive discontinuity after 60 years come GE14.
We need a new operating system to replace the old, inefficient and corrupted one.

Just like BN UMNO for 53 years … PR & rocket are learning the art of lying fast. Yes lies, twist and turn just like BN UMNO. After looking back, I think Gerakan fare better than the Rocket. At least KTK and team are more straight fowards than the lies and deceit spewed by (the present administration).

Yang Unfortunately, PR does not have RM4 million a day to spend on consultants. The federal government has spent a whopping RM7.2 billion since 2009 to hire private consultants for national projects, the Finance Ministry has disclosed, despite the 1.4 million civil servants in its employment. The ministry revealed a gradual rise in the bills for private consultancy firms from RM1.3 billion in 2009 — the year Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak took office — to RM1.63 billion in 2010, followed by RM1.8 billion in 2011, RM1.82 billion in 2012 and RM722 million from January to October this… Read more »


Those rich Malaysians (in the top tier tax bracket of 24%) earning RM400,000 and above annually would not be too affected by the new 6% GST. In fact each of them would have RM7,200 in tax savings, which will enable RM120,000 worth of GST-imposed purchases annually!

However, those earning RM3,000 a month, who may not have to pay income tax at present depending on their deductions, will have to start paying tax which could not possibly be off-set by BR1M.


“mesyuarant jawatankuasa bantahan awam” is the committee to hear any objection from the nearby residents when there is no local plan in place to determine the location of new development. it is just like a rubber stamp committee cause even if the objection raised by the residents is valid & uphold by this committee, the osc can overrule it. so far all objections raised by residents & upheld by this committee against the developments proposed by developers in their neighborhood were overruled by osc.


the ratepayers & NGO have to be informed & raise objection where necessary. i worried i may be lopsided plan..
