Article: Hearing on hillside projects

Wednesday August 12, 2009


A GROUP of residents in Tanjung Bungah, Penang, is urging other residents to attend a public hearing on hillslope development in the state constituency at the Town Hall in Penang at 2.15pm tomorrow.

Pearl Hill Townhouse Phase I and II Residents Association spokesman Desmond Leng said they were trying to get some 150 families in the locality to attend the hearing which was called by the Penang Municipal Council on the request of the association.

He said banners had been put up in strategic locations while fliers and short messaging service (SMS) messages were sent out to make sure that all 150 affected families would attend the hearing to "make their presence felt".

He said they planned to demand a revocation of previously approved hillslope development projects in the area.

"It is dangerous to erect bungalows or high-rise apartments at steep gradients here," Leng said in an interview.

He said the residents were worried that the proposed development of a housing project on a hillslope at Solok Tan Jit Seng would cause landslides and possibly damage their houses.

Besides the Pearl Hill residents, those living in Chee Seng Garden nearby are also up in arms against a high-rise project in their area.

The move to seek a public hearing is a follow-up to a peaceful protest held by the Chee Seng residents in February when the protesters called on Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to stop all hillside development projects in the area.

"We were made to understand that the projects were approved by the previous state government under Barisan Nasional.

"We are sorry that the present government has to inherit the problem but they must be accountable as they are now the people in-charge.

"They need to revoke all previous approvals given," Leng said.

He stressed that there was nothing political about the issue, saying that their main concern was environment preservation besides the safety and security of those living atop Pearl Hill.

"We do not want another Highland Tower or Bukit Antarabangsa episode happening in Penang," he added.

When contacted, Tanjung Bungah assemblyman Teh Yee Cheu said he was aware of the grouses concerning hillslope development in his constituency.

"I am in a midst of organising a dialogue between the residents and state government," he added.

Bukit Bendara MP Liew Chin Tong said he would leave it to the state to answer the demands made by the residents.
