Penang Structure Plan 2030 gazetted, including 3 new islands

December 12th, 2019 1 comment
PSP 2030 (Draft)

PSP 2030 (Draft)

Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow yesterday announced the approval of the 2030 Penang Structure Plan (RSN), which outlines development strategies and policies for the state from 2020 to 2030.

Chow said the RSN, which had taken into account public views and objections over the past year, was now legally binding. He said the RSN was gazetted on Oct 24, after the state executive council had approved it.

The RSN includes the Penang South Islands project and reclamation projects in Seri Tanjung Pinang, Gurney Drive and the Queensbay area.

At a press conference here, Chow said the RSN could be reviewed every five years to take into account market demands and other factors.

He said local plans —which dictate what can or cannot be built in a particular area — would be ready next year.

At the same press conference, state Town and Country Planning Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo said there would be two local plans (RT) — one for Penang Island and the other for Seberang Perai.

He said the RT for Seberang Perai was expected to be rolled out by June 2020 while the island plan would be out by Dec 2020.

Asked why the RTs had been delayed, Chow said the plans typically followed the RSN as it was the main development master plan.

He said since a new RSN was being released, all local plans must follow strategies laid out under this RSN.

Asked if Penang had ever had a local plan, Chow replied in the negative, saying it never had one in place. “There has never been a local plan,” he said.

On a proposal by a private developer to reclaim an island near Batu Ferringhi, he said there was no final word yet and it remained a proposal.

The RSN is the result of a federal law which requires all states to come up with a structure plan which would essentially lay out the spatial plans for the state.

It outlines the development plans for the state over the next 10 years and, among other things, will affect density and where homes can be built.

It can be reviewed once every five years. The last RSN was gazetted on June 28, 2007 and is still in use today.

Quit rent increase will be minimal

December 11th, 2019 3 comments

The Penang government yesterday assured those living in apartments and stratified units that any increase in quit rent will be “very minimal” and based on rates already in place since 1994.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said the rates will also not change for the next 10 years – until 2029, when they are due for an adjustment.

Chow said strata title owners will not have to worry about having to pay much more under the new parcel quit rent system, which came into effect this year.

He said those paying RM10 in quit rent now will probably have to pay around RM20 to RM30 in parcel quit rent.

Chow said the new system will take into account the floor space, as opposed to the entire plot of land where the building is situated.

He said balconies and car parks will be given 50% off, while common areas such as swimming pools or other utilities will not be charged.

“This is a minor increase. There is not much revenue to be made from land taxes. The new parcel quit rent system will resolve many issues,” he told reporters at Komtar today.

Chow said that under the new system, authorities are expected to collect RM11.1 million compared to about RM5 million previously.

He said the state has collected RM1.5 million so far under the new system and will not charge a RM50 late payment penalty for those settling their dues by May 31 next year.

There are 227,874 units with strata titles in 1,836 housing schemes in the state.

Since Jan 1, Penang had migrated from the old quit rent system to the parcel quit rent system for stratified properties.

The system follows the requirement of a federal law concerning stratified properties and will help to prevent mismanagement and overcharging of quit rent by joint management bodies (JMBs) and management corporations (MCs).

Under the old system, the quit rent was calculated based on the size of the mother title or main lot, and the burden of paying quit rent was shared among the occupants of the entire apartment block.

The quit rent was calculated by the respective JMBs and MCs and payable directly to them. It was included in the owners’ maintenance fees.

Under the parcel quit rent system, each owner pays directly to the respective district land offices.

There had been concerns that the rates will be much higher as they will be calculated based on each unit’s floor space, compared to the burden-sharing system earlier on.
