Tanjung Bungah hill clearings breach 250-feet threshold

Take a look at this and you can see the 250-feet threshold being breached at several points.

Under the Penang Structure Plan, development higher than 250 feet above sea level is prohibited (apart for special projects, which really should be for the public interest).

In Tanjung Bungah, some of the development also appears to be on steep hill-slopes greater than the permissible threshold of 25 degrees.

Liow Tiong Lai proudly announced the RM30 billion boost for the construction of 3 islands under the ambitious Malacca Gateway, (again) with collaboration with PRC under ‘1 Belt 1 Road’ initiative.

Najib’s CIMB brother has sounded such warning.
It was on the headline of today’s China Press.

A study on the financial fragility of urban households in Malaysia has found that only 10.8% of them would be resilient to financial shocks. Highly-leveraged with little savings, many will find themselves in a quandary in the event of a financial shock, which could stem from a loss of job, changes in interest rates or financial markets; or other factors such as physical impairment, death and divorce. The same study, as highlighted in the recently published State of Households II report by Khazanah Research Institute (KRI), indicates that more than 50% of the country‚Äôs urban households did not have any… Read more »

Who actually holds the land laws & who actually can twist & turn & change the land laws for special projects (only in fine print) to their corporate-political fancies? Apart from MACC, nobody can catch these die-hard recalcitrants @ Komtar to bring them to court of justice above lawyers’ spinning. You & I don’t have a standby platoon of spinning lawyers, neither an army of drunken trolls & knee-jerking minions. But we don’t have to be a helpless sitting duck. The Plausible Way to counter such arrogance of recalcitrants is to spread / share the news at ground level &… Read more »
