countered BN criticism of hill-slope projects, the Penang government has pointed to the actions of the previous BN local government in the 1990s.

The state government also questioned the date of the images of google maps that were published to show rapid degradation of hill-slopes along the north coast in 2010.

So who is really responsible for the degradation of our hill-slopes and can anything be done about it?

Dear POLITICIANS,

Shame on you for toying your ‘beloved’ rakyat!

Anak Penang, truly Penangite.
Some may disagree with you, esp. the headmistress in distressed garden in PJ/SS2.
He may even disagree with the word ‘toying’ for lack of proof & out of range of his brand of PJ English grammar.
Anyway, we standing in Ground Zero Pulo Panang knows the ultimate truth.
Cheers, Kopi-O kau kau kau.
What a blue sky sunny afternoon!

Hi everyone, OES has formerly alleged that his investigation showed the political eunuch KTK had only approved 2 of the 19 special projects on hillslopes higher that 250 ft; implying/insinuating that somebody else must have approved the rest!! Then, he also alleged that LGE’s English is so atrocious to change plural (meaning 19 Special projects) to singular, implying that LGE has changed his stand of 19 Special projects approved by the previous BN govts. to only 1 project approved by BN! I did call on OES to hold his horses first and let MPPP clarify on what are facts and… Read more »

MPPP chief clears the air PETALING JAYA: The Penang Island Municipal Council (MPPP) has had to approve 19 projects after 2008 because they were deemed as special projects “that could not be rejected” despite exceeding the 76m height limit. MPPP president Patahiyah Ismail denied that she had contradicted Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng on the controversial hillslope development issue. “MPPP wishes to reaffirm that all projects carried out 76m above sea level were approved directly or as special projects before March 2008 by the previous state government. “The Penang chief minister is correct in saying that the present state government… Read more »

Shame on you for not allowing the right to respond to the fabricated tales in your The Star!

I appeal to you Anwar Ibrahim. If you don’t think about the PM-ship at least think about the welfare of the people. Stop the madness now before it go out of hand. Do not think a single man can’t change the world. You won’t like me when I am angry! Ignore this warning and face the collateral consequences of lgE’s stupidity.

Geez, Ah Soon really gone off on tangent. Suddenly addressing someone like DSAI?

No one force lgE to approve hill slope development. Not only lgE tried to mislead us on the 19 hill slope project, he also tried to distort hill slope definition. By confining hill slope development to 250ft above sea level, he hoped that we will ignore the other hill slope developments below 250ft . lgE is probably having his wildest dream! I only need to expose how the developers (allegedly) conspired with lgE administration to create a loophole to escape being classified as hill slope development at 250 ft above sea level. This I promise you will be the second… Read more »

If all those stupid sycophant supporters of PR think that by attacking me personally without based on facts and evidences, they can deter me from attacking their idol, they are in a dream. You all are big time liabilities to PR especially Anwar Ibrahim. Just wonder how Anwar think and feel when he realised that his stupid sycophant supporters actually chase away those who voted for PR in the last election.

What the hell we care about whether its 250 ft above or even in Penang hill as long as it follow the safety guidelines and is safe. Even on the land such as Pulau Tikus many are also complaining. Its always the selfishness of some of the people. Like some who buy condo on reclaimed land which block the view of the kampong and later object when another condo is built in front of them.

I don’t comment on the safety aspect in Anil blog because I can’t show photo to illustrate what I mean by safety violation. Wait til you read my comment on main stream media then you tell me whether lgE ever give a damn to safety guideline.
Why increase plot ratio, development density and refuse to abide by the buffer zone requirement of the safety guideline when come to hill slope development?

No one can devote their time and effort like me in doing research , deep analysis and investigation. With my style of dirt digging, BN will be most happy to accept whatever thing that I can offer. Good luck to you Anwar. Hope that you still has the chance to become PM.

Agree with your 200% effort in research so far. Definitely better than Sze Tho + anil combined !!!

Another way of looking at it is:

– probably no partner/gf/ wife due to your deranged personality.

If I have to mobilise TV3, nTV7, tV8, TV9, RTM, Star, NST or whatever to bring down lgE administration, it is the fault of local nGOs which adopted partisan stand over important issues. BN will be defeated sooner or later as the number of young voters grow while the number of old voters decreased over the years. Come next election, the priority is to get… Read more »

All those days I only confined my attacks on lgE in Anil blog which the most allow me to reach less than 2000 readers.If you minus those readers from other states, the number of Penangites that I can influence in Anil blog will be less than 1000.

This sort of dementia type mental illness is truly rare!

Today we witnessed how partisan stand has overriden the important of hill slope issues. The obsess to get rid of BN has caused serious dilemma to activist like the Great Anil who would pretend to highlight the hill slope issues by giving Lim Guan Eng extra opportunities to justify his abuse of our hill slopes. What a shame!

The other question we should ask is why should we allow a 1996 MPPP zoning plan to trump the over-riding restrictions on hill-slope development that should be strictly enforced? Lim Guan Eng administration could easily amend the Pelan Dasar Perancangan dan Kawalan Pemajuan MPPP as the way he amended the garispanduan pelingkungan semula daripada ‘zon perumahan tetap sedia ada’ ,’zon perumahan am’ dan ‘zon perumahan am sedia ada’ kepada peniagaan terhad kepada ‘zon peniagaan am’ bagi lot-lot yang berhadapan jalan kelawi on 27-1-2011. Why Lim Guan eng chose to abdicate his responsibility in protecting the hill slope and the interest… Read more »

The meeting of SPC on 13-09-1996 which Teng Chang Yoew attended in no way can pre-approve the 19 hill slope development. The most likely event that occurred is the rezoning of the lots of the 19 special projects to Zon Perumahan Am dan Zon Perumahan Ketumpatan Rendah.

ong eu soon

One striking point in this hill slope issues is the alleged none compliance of plot ratio and development density. If the 19 hill slope projects were to comply with the Pelan Dasar Perancangan dan Kawalan Pemajuan MPPP, the plot ratio can not go up to 1:3.
If the development density of the Penang structure Plan is followed it can not go up to 87 units per acre.
Somebody is abusing the power without follow the stringent controls governing hill slope development!

The Pelan Dasar Perancangan dan Kawalan Pemajuan MPPP is just a zoning plan which define the land use and plot ratio. The approval of the Pelan Dasar Perancangan dan Kawalan Pemajuan MPPP on 13.9.1996 by the then State Planning Committee in no way pre-approve the 19 hill slope development projects which are at 250ft above sea level. The Penang Structure Plan only define the conditions under which an application for development for specific zone should be proceed . There is totally no provision under any guideline or policy that pre-approve any hill slope development. Unfortunately Lim Guan Eng and Patahiyah… Read more »

MPPP claims that planning approvals for the 19 special project were based on the approval of Pelan Dasar Perancangan dan Kawalan Pemajuan MPPP by SPC on 13.9.1996 and as special projects in accordance with State Structure Plan 2020. What is that mean? Under the Pelan Dasar Perancangan dan Kawalan Pemajuan MPPP, all those lots from the 19 project are classified for general residential use. Those areas can only be developed if they are classified as “projek istemewa” and subject to stringent control and guidelines with low development density. There is no clause in the Pelan Dasar Perancangan dan Kawalan Pemajuan… Read more »

Don’t give us this cock and bull. MPPP has already given the full history of the approvals and the time is was done. Don’t try and twist and turn here.

Ong Eu Soon’s name is quoted by MCA-The Star’s Joceline Tan today. “To add to this, Ong Eu Soon, a social activist often quoted on development issues in Penang, has disputed Guan Eng’s claim that his government has not approved a single development that is above 76m. Ong did his own investigation and he has insisted that a high-rise condominium project in the Air Itam area was approved in 2009 and it is sitting well over 76m above sea level. The project is on a beautiful hill known as Bukit Hijau and is currently under construction.” Looks like Eu Soon… Read more »
