14 housing projects to be revived

 09/10/2004 The Star

THE Penang government is in the midst of reviving 14 abandoned housing projects, state Housing, Culture, Arts and Heritage Committee chairman Syed Amerrudin Syed Ahmad said.

He said two of these projects were in the process of receiving the Certificate of Fitness.

He said developers were reviving two more projects and Syarikat Perumahan Negara Bhd (SPNB) was undertaking three projects while two more were under the super-vision of the State Insolvency Department.

“For the remaining five projects, we are still having discussions with financial institutions, contractors and the land owners,” he said in his winding-up speech in the Penang State Assembly.

Replying to a question posed by Mansor Musa (BN – Batu Maung) on the shortage of housing for the poor, he said the state government had constructed two projects for rental in River Road on the island and Desa Wawasan in Sungai Rambai on the mainland.

He said 10 more such projects were still under construction, and the state government had identified three more sites for development.

He added that registration was still open for the rental of units in low-cost housing projects at Jalan Thamby Kechil in North Seberang Prai and at the Ampang Jajar in Central Seberang Prai.
