YAB Tan Sri Dato’,

PROJEK PERUMAHAN YANG DILAKSANAKAN OLEH LEMBAGA KEMAJUAN WILAYAH PULAU PINANG (PERDA) DAN JKP SDN. BHD. YANG BELUM MENDAPAT KELULUSAN KERAJAAN NEGERI PULAU PINANG

Saya dengan segala hormatnya merujuk kepada perbualan kami mengenai perkara di atas. Pengerusi Majlis Tindakan Persekutuan Pulau Pinang, Datuk Zainal Abidin Bin Osman mendakwa bahawa kononnya Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang tidak meluluskan projek-projek PERDA, UDA dan JKP Sdn. Bhd.

2. Dalam siri surat-menyurat di antara Datuk Zainal Abidin Bin Osman dan Ahli Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang untuk Perumahan dan Perancangan Bandar & Desa, YB Tuan Jagdeep Singh Deo, jelas membuktikan bukan kesemua unit perumahan yang dilaksanakan oleh PERDA dan JKP Sdn. Bhd. sepertimana yang disenaraikan oleh Datuk Zainal Abidin Bin Osman adalah untuk perumahan mampu milik.


3. Malahan, adalah didapati bahawa ada unit-unit perumahan yang ingin dibina oleh PERDA dan JKP Sdn Bhd terdiri daripada harga rumah mewah yang melebihi harga perumahan mampu milik Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang. Rumah mampu milik yang dibina oleh Kerajaan Negeri menerusi Penang Development Corporation (PDC) adalah berharga RM250,000.00 untuk bahagian Seberang dan RM400,000.00 untuk bahagian Pulau. Harga rumah mampu milik Kerajaan Negeri mematuhi garis panduan Kerajaan Persekutuan dengan tidak melebihi harga RM400,000.00. Manakala untuk rumah mampu milik yang ingin dibina oleh PERDA dan JKP Sdn Bhd adalah termasuk rumah-rumah yang harganya mencecah RM575,000.00 di bahagian Seberang dan RM1.85 juta di bahagian Pulau.

4. Lagipun, daripada 15 projek PERDA dan JKP yang disenaraikan, 11 projek tersebut akan dibangunkan di atas tanah yang dimilikinya melalui pengambilan tanah untuk tujuan awam dan bukan dibeli daripada pihak swasta. Pengambilan tanah dijalankan untuk membina rumah awam dan mampu milik dengan kos pengambilan untuk tujuan begini adalah lebih rendah dan tidak sepatutnya menukarkan tujuan untuk membina rumah mewah.

5. Pada masa yang sama, terdapat masalah lain berhubung dengan projek JKP dan PERDA. Di antaranya ialah projek tersebut mempunyai isu-isu sosio-ekonomi seperti penempatan semula setinggan yang perlu diselesaikan terlebih dahulu sebelum kelulusan dapat diberikan.

6. Isu-isu harga unit perumahan yang tinggi, pemilikan tanah melalui pengambilan tanah untuk tujuan awam serta isu-isu setinggan perlu ditangani terlebih dahulu sebelum sebarang keputusan dapat dibuat berkenaan projek-projek PERDA dan JKP Sdn Bhd yang ingin dilaksanakan di Negeri Pulau Pinang.

7. Kerajaan Negeri tidak mempunyai masalah untuk meluluskan projek rumah kos rendah atau kos sederhana rendah tetapi perlu berhati-hati apabila ianya melibatkan pembinaan rumah mewah oleh PERDA dan JKP Sdn Bhd. Kami berharap YAB Tan Sri Dato’, Timbalan Perdana Menteri boleh memahami tekanan yang dihadapi oleh Kerajaan Negeri sekiranya meluluskan projek bukan mampu milik tetapi merupakan rumah mewah di atas tanah yang diambil daripada rakyat atas janji membina rumah awam atau rumah mampu milik. Keadaan ini akan menjadi lebih rumit apabila masalah setinggan belum diselesaikan.

Sekian, terima kasih.


Yang ikhlas,

槟州政府可负担房屋的价格依据条例,顶价不超过40万令吉,不如中央政府属下机构所兴建可负担房屋的价格近乎200万 令吉!


槟州首席部长林冠英于2014年10 月23日致函予副首相拿督斯里慕尤丁,内容如下:


致最尊贵的副首相丹斯里拿督斯里慕尤丁,

槟州区域发展机构(PERDA)和房屋发展局(JKP)的房屋计划仍未取得槟州政府的批准。

谨以此信,我曾在交谈中向您提起上述相关事宜。

槟州联邦政府行动理事会主席拿督再纳阿比丁控诉槟州政府不批准槟州区域发展机构、城市发展局和房屋发展局的各项计划。

2. 在拿督再纳阿比丁和槟州政府房屋及城乡规划行政议员佳日星的书信来往中,清楚说明并非所有由槟州区域发展机构和房屋发展局所进行的房屋单位,如拿督再纳阿比丁所列出的是兴建可负担房屋单位。

3. 同时,槟州政府发现槟州区域发展机构和房屋发展局有意兴建的一些房屋单位的列价是豪华房屋的价格,超过槟州政府可负担房屋的价格。槟州政府通过槟州发展机构所兴建的可负担房屋,在威省为25万令吉,槟岛则是40万令吉。而槟州区域发展机构和房屋发展局所要兴建的可负担房屋,其价格为在威省高达57万5000令吉,槟岛则是185万令吉。

4. 再说,槟州区域发展机构和房屋发展局的15项计划中,其中11项计划将兴建在徴用公共用途土地上,而非向私人界所购买。由于用于兴建公共房屋和可负担房屋的土地征用费用会比较便宜,因此不应该转建豪华房屋。

5. 与此用时,还有其他关于房屋发展局和槟州区域发展机构的问题。其中包括涉及社会经济的问题,比如木屋区住户安顿需在给予批准前解决。

6. 这些种种的问题,包括房屋单位价位高、徴用公共用途土地和木屋区问题,都必须在槟州政府未针对槟州发展区域机构和房屋发展局各项房屋计划作出任何决定前解决。

7. 槟州政府在批准兴建中低廉价屋上没有存在任何的问题,但是如果槟州发展区域机构和房屋发展局所推出的房屋计划涉及豪华房屋兴建时,州政府必须小心翼翼地处理。我们希望副首相丹斯里拿督斯里慕尤丁能够理解槟州政府所面对的压力。一旦给予计划的批准不是兴建可负担房屋而是豪华房屋,同时兴建在向人民徴用并已转为公共用途的土地上,没有兌现兴建公共房屋或可负担房屋的承诺。加上木屋区的问 题尚未解决,情况将会更复杂。

谨此,向您致谢



林冠英
槟州首席部长

Reorganisation and streamlining of PDC

Posted in Dari Meja Ketua Menteri

Press Conference by YAB Chief Minister of Penang on the Reorganisation and streamlining of PDC on Tuesday, 28th October 2014 at 12.00 noon, Komtar

I wish to announce that Penang Development Corporation, has streamlined its organisation structure to make the Corporation more effective and efficient so as to meet the increasing challenges of spearheading the socio economic growth of the State.

This reorganisation as part of the PDC’s Change Management programme, which is carried out by an international consultant company ie LSS Academy, is an essential management tool to transform PDC into a dynamic and top Government-linked Corporation (GLC).

In transforming PDC towards an effective performing organisation, one of the fundamental prerequisite is to review its overall organisation. in an organisation transformation journey, the activities of organisation design, performance management, rewards and recognition and talent management will need to be performed.

As part of this change management, PDC has created 2 new divisions ie the Strategic Planning Division and the Contract Management Division.

The role of the Strategic Planning Division is to lead PDC’s divisions & departments along with key stakeholders such as Invest Penang, and state municipal councils:

• To conduct master planning sessions to develop 5 year rolling Strategic Plans, driven from the existing state development strategies and blueprints.
• To translate and monitor semi-annually/annually the effective implementation of the PDC 5 year rolling plans and any changes made.

The Contract Management Division is tasked with providing PDC with the capability to effectively manage the delivery of development project’s timeline against the agreed upon contractual obligations and commitments, safeguarding revenues, profits and reputation.

I am pleased to announce that in line with this change, PDC has promoted 3 senior managers to the posts of Deputy General Manager as well as created 3 senior manager posts. The promotions are as follows:

Promotions to Deputy General Manager II

Encik Mohd Bazid B Hj Abd Kahar Senior Manager of Physical Planning and Land Management Division,

Encik Jamil B Ibrahim, Senior Manager of Project Management and Special Projects and

Encik Yeoh Lean Huat, Senior Manager of Technical Division / Project Manager for EDIS

Promotions to Senior Managers
Encik Abdul Latiff Abd Aziz, is now Senior Manager of the Strategic Planning Division,
Encik Jeffrey Chew is now Senior Manager of the Contract Management Division,
Encik Aziz B Bakar is now Senior Manager of Physical Planning and Land Management Division

With the view to measuring and improving performance and rewards, PDC is also working on the Balanced Scorecard and Performance Management System which will be implemented in 2015.

Deputy General Manager 1 Chief Financial Officer Miss Phan Gaik Cher
Deputy General Manager 1 Chief Information Officer Ms Chang Wing Mow

Cocktail Reception for the Memorial Day in Conjunction with 100th Anniversary of the Downfall of the Russian Cruiser “ Zhemtchug”

Posted in Dari Meja Ketua Menteri

Speech by Rt. Hon Mr. Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang at the at Cocktail Reception for the Memorial Day in Conjunction with 100th Anniversary of the Downfall of the Russian Cruiser “ Zhemtchug”, at E&O Hotel on October 28th, 2014


History tells us that many wars have been fought for centuries. However, on 28th July 1914, a global war, centered in Europe, began and became known as the First World War. With over 9 million combatants and 7 million civilian deaths, it was then the deadliest conflict in history.

Unfortunately, Penang, as part of the British Empire at that time, was not spared this grievous global catastrophe. And the ‘Battle of Penang’ became one of the most striking and tragic events of World War 1 in the Asia Pacific Region.

On the fateful early morning hours of 28th October 1914, the German Light Cruiser ‘Emden’ torpedoed the Russian Cruiser ‘Zhemchug’. As the Zhemchug sank, she took with her the lives of many of her sailors.

However, those sailors who survived would later tell the story of how, brave local fishermen, at the risk of their own lives, had pulled them out of the water and brought them to safety. What could possibly have prompted those fishermen to such acts of selfless heroism?

The Captain of Zhemchug, Baron Ivan Cherkasov, unfortunately or perhaps fortunately, was not on board the Zhemchug when she was attacked. Ironically, in spite of advice from the Allied Command, Baron Cherkasov had allowed many of his crew to take shore leave on the night on 27th October; thereby greatly reducing the fatalities.

Baron Cherkasov himself had also taken shore leave to be with his wife Baroness Varvara Cherkasova, who was visiting him at that time, and they stayed at this very hotel, the Eastern & Oriental, exactly 100 years ago to this very day!

Sadly, World War 1 would not be the first and last global war. In 1939, the world began another global conflict at an even greater catastrophic scale. Former allies suddenly found themselves fighting each other with devastating consequences.

It was, and is until today, the most widespread war in history. Involving over 100 million people in over 30 countries. Never in history have man, armed with modern weapons, killed one another with such efficiency and precision. So much so that the number of fatalities could not be counted; estimates run between 50 to 85 million!

History shows us how fragile peace truly is. And how we must all appreciate and respect each other’s differences in order to live in peace. Albert Einstein, one of the greatest minds of the 20th century, once said, and I quote, “Peace can never be kept by force. It can only be achieved through understanding”.

This evening, as we gather here to commemorate one hundred years of the sinking of Russian Cruiser Zhemchug, it is not only for us to remember the fallen, but also to remind us of our friendship.

This morning as I attended the memorial service at Western Road Cemetery, I was touched by the fact that the few Russian sailors, who lost their lives so far away from home, were still remembered by their Motherland, after one hundred years!

I now look forward to the future with hope that the bonds of friendship between Malaysia and Russia will remain, as it have for over one hundred years. Let us hope for no more great wars of human conflict that bring forth great violence, instead let us have wars against ignorance, poverty, disease and corruption.

Last but not least, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr Teoh Seng Lee, whom was officially appointed the Honorary Consul of the Russian Federation in 1993, will be receiving the Russian Presidential Order of Friendship (Order No. 403, dated 4th June 2014) tonight. He will be the second Malaysian recipient after Tun Mahathir (2003) and former Singapore Prime Minister Mr. Lee Kuan Yew who were awarded this Order in 2009.

Thank you.
