Low-cost housing near Taman Murai Jaya broke gound


At a cost of almost RM6.45 million, the Penang Housing Board (LPNPP) is going to build 3-storey low-cost flats on an abandoned plot of land near Lorong Murai Jaya here and is expected to be fully completed within 12 months from now.

Chief Minister, Y.A.B. Tuan Chow Kon Yeow informed that eligible local residents will be given priority to be offered units through a project that will consist of 36 residences with a floor area of ​​700 sq.ft. per unit through the rent-to-own method for a period of up to 25 years as stipulated by LPNPP.

“These houses may not be sold but eligible applicants will be offered to pay rent (through the ‘rent-to-own’ method) which when the term (‘rent-to-own’) expires within a period of 20 years or 25 years (i.e. ) payment every month (completed), finally the house will belong to the residents.

“This would mean they don’t need to get a (housing) loan from the bank (first), but can continue to move in because this is the State Government’s social responsibility,” he explained before completing the groundbreaking ceremony for the project here yesterday.

According to Mutiara Bulletin, the 0.8 acre land for the low-cost housing has already been abandoned for almost 35 years and the private developer firm has finally agreed to hand over the vacant land to the local authority (PBT).

The State Government through the LPNPP appointed the Penang Development Corporation (PDC) to manage the development of the abandoned land.

Taman Lip Sin Master Plan aimed at improving liveability

Property News/ 13 August 2022 No comments


Taman Lip Sin, which comes under the Bayan Baru parliamentary and Batu Uban state constituency, could see its neighbourhood transformed into a better living environment if the proposed Lip Sin Master Plan materialises.

Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tzin, who proposed master plan, was determined to improve the liveability of the neighbourhood.

“We have engaged a professional architect to conduct traffic assessment and design the area to be more pedestrian-friendly.

“We want to encourage people to walk instead of drive to nearby places.

“People are encouraged to walk to the nearby pocket parks, supermarket, and other areas in the vicinity,” he said in his speech during the ‘Jelajah ❤️ Penang’ programme in Bayan Baru parliamentary constituency yesterday.

Sim said the Lip Sin Master Plan proposal has been submitted to the state government for its consideration. He hoped for a positive response.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, who was present alongside his team, praised Sim and Batu Uban assemblyman A. Kumaresan for initiating the Lip Sin Master Plan.

“The state will look into the plan. It is a good initiative. We will consider all aspects, including the cost, if the project gets the nod from the state.

“The community also plays a vital role through its involvement in such initiative,” he said.

Earlier, Chow was happy to fly the Jalur Gemilang in view of the National Day celebration end of this month.

Chow and his team had so far visited seven parliamentary constituencies under the ‘Jelajah ❤️ Penang’ programme. The parliamentary constituencies were Bukit Bendera, Tasek Gelugor, Kepala Batas, Permatang Pauh, Nibong Tebal, Balik Pulau, and Bayan Baru.

Among those present were Chow’s political secretary Teh Lai Heng, Lip Sin MPKK (Village Community Management Council) head Ngo Chee Yi and Taman Lip Sin Block 2 Committee chairman Lee Meng Jee.
