Projects should not take place without a local plan

SAHABAT Alam Malaysia (SAM) calls on the Penang state government to put on hold all approvals for any mega projects on the island – such as the Light Rail Transit (LRT) and the Penang Hill cable car projects – until proper local plans are in place.

Although there are references to the LRT and the cable car projects in the Penang Island Structure Plan 2030, there are no further details in terms of a detailed zoning of areas; this would only be shown in a local plan.
