To give the public more time to provide feedback and criticism, the state government of Penang is displaying a draft of the Penang Structure Plan 2030 (PSP 2030) for two months.
A copy of the draft plan will be displayed at Level Three in Komtar on Penang island and the Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP) on the mainland, reported Malay Mail.
Local Government, Housing Development and Town and Country Planning Committee Chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo noted that while the law only required the public display to run only for a month, the state government decided to put it on display for two months.
“This is so that we can get more input, feedback and suggestions from the public to be considered.”
“After the closing date of feedback submission, all criticisms, input and suggestions will be collated, scrutinised and considered to be included into the PSP 2030 draft,” he said.
He added that the state “do not want a rushed job, we want a document of quality and the fact that we are here today is proof that we are committed in proceeding with it”.
While he could not provide a timeline on when the state plans to gazette the PSP 2030’s final draft, Jagdeep assured that they will follow due process.
The PSP 2030 is a review of the PSP 2020, which was gazetted in 2007. The structure plan provides an outline of the state’s development plans until 2030 while laying out the types of development projects allowed in Penang.
