Groups oppose plans for Penang Hill


GEORGE TOWN: Several groups have voiced their opposition to the state government’s plans for hotels on Penang Hill despite a claim from the Chief Minister’s Office that there are no concrete proposals yet.

Malaysian Nature Society Penang branch adviser Kanda Kumar said when a developer had plans for Penang Hill in the 1980s, members had gotten a grant and camped there for a week to document its flora and fauna to counter the Envi­ronmental Impact Assessment report.
