High Chaparral: Councillors Call For Withdrawal Of Development Approval For Kampung Buah Pala To

Contributed by Anonymous on Friday, July 31 @ 11:47:04 CDT

PENANG, July 31 (Bernama) -- Two local concillors today urged the Penang Island Municipal Council (MPPP) to study carefully the state government's directive to withdraw the approval for a housing project in Kampung Buah Pala, Bukit Gelugor, here.

MPPP councillor Mohd Razali Abdullah said although the local authority had the power to cancel the project given to the developer Nusmetro Ventures(P) Sdn Bhd to prevent development on the disputed village land, it must be done judiciously and to consider the impact of the decision on MPPP," he said at a MPPP ordinary meeting, here, Friday.

He said according to press reports, the developer would be taking legal action against MPPP and demand RM150 in compensation if the project was cancelled.

"With an operational expenditure of RM220 million and if it has to pay RM150 million to the developer, this will not only have an impact on our services as councillors but also on the MPPP itself," he said.

On July 25, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng ordered the MPPP to withdraw the approval given to Nusmetro Ventures to carry out a housing project on the village land.

Mohd Razali said as a local authority, MPPP should play its role by providing the best services to the public and separate itself from the political game of certain quarters.

"Any action taken should be fair to all and done through the proper channels," he said.

Another councillor, Zulkifli Mohd Noor, said MPPP should consider the effects of the decision (to withdraw the development approval) on the members of the Koperasi Pegawai Kerajaan Pulau Pinang (KPKPP), which had acquired the land through the legal process.

"If we want to solve the problem of only 22 families in the village, what about the 100 house buyers and members of KPKPP who have been waiting for their homes?

"The MPPP should view this matter seriously as it not only can affect stability in the state and country, but can also turn into a racial issue," he said.

Meanwhile, MPPP secretary Patahiyah Ismail said so far, the MPPP had not received a written directive from the state government to cancel the project.
