Residents object to high-rise project proposal

A group of residents in Lembah Permai, Tanjung Bungah are objecting to a proposal by a developer to construct two 32-storey apartment blocks and a nine-storey apartment there.

The residents attended a dialogue session called by the Tanjung Bungah Residents Association (TBRA) to raise awareness about amendments in the development plan that has yet to receive approval from the Penang Municipal Council (MPPP).

TBRA founding member Lee Laina, 54, said that the project would be constructed on a plot of land behind Lorong Lembah Permai 4.

“The traffic situation in Lembah Permai is already bad with all the developments around, so do we really need more high-rise buildings in the area?” she asked.

A spokesman for the developer said the company’s submission of development planning was in accordance with the council’s rules and regulations. - By The Star
