THE Penang government is looking at adopting Selangor’s stiff penalty of up to RM250,000 to developers who fail to comply with the Erosion and Sedimentation Control Plan (ESCP).

State works committee chairman Zairil Khir Johari said the state hoped to minimise the non-compliance rate of ESCPs with a new by-law on compounds for violations.
