New outlet mall project will not affect Kinta Nature Park wildlife, says state tourism committee chairman

Perak tourism committee chairman Datuk Nolee Ashilin Mohd Radzi.

IPOH: An outlet mall under construction near here will not affect wildlife habitats at Kinta Nature Park, says Datuk Nolee Ashilin Mohd Radzi.

The Perak Tourism committee chairman said the outlet, located opposite the Batu Gajah train station, was located a distance away from the gazetted state park.

"Technically, the outlet is situated far away from Kinta Nature Park.

"We do not have the figures yet, but it is not located next to the park. There is a buffer zone between the two," she said after attending a communal clean-up activity at Kampung Rapat Jaya Islamic and non-Islamic cemetery, here on Saturday (June 20).

A series of photographs of the project were spread on social media, claiming that it was located near the park.

It was also reported in 2017 that the Kinta Nature Park was the state's third state gazetted park, after Royal Belum and Pulau Sembilan.

Also present at the event were Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu and the state exco member Ahmad Saidi Mohamad Daud.

Faizal said the state cares about the environment.

He said that the outlet is expected to begin operations by year-end.
