02/03/2004The Star 

THE state government has revived six housing projects and is reviving another five that had been abandoned since 1996.

State Housing, Entrepreneur and Co-operative Development Committee chairman Datuk Abdul Rashid Abdullah said the state was negotiating with the developers to revive another five abandoned projects.

Replying to Lim Gim Soon’s (BN – Kampung Kolam), he said 8,452 low cost and 11,664 low-medium cost houses had been completed and offered to the poor.

“Under the Public Housing Project (PPR), we have compleed 1,441 units which had been rented to those who can't afford a low cost house,” he said adding that the rental was RM100 per month for five years.

Abdul Rashid (BN – Sungai Acheh) said the residents were expected to work hard and save up during the five years.

“PPR will sell the houses to those who are qualified at the end of five years,” he said.

For the Hardcore Poor Development Programme (PPRT), he said the Penang Regional Development Authority (Perda) had completed 443 units.

On another matter, state Works, Public Amenities and Transport Committee chair man Datuk Koay Kar Huah pointed out that the Swettenham Pier redevelopment project would be completed within two years.

“The Federal Government has allocated RM65mil for the project and the Transport Ministry is in the process of selecting a contractor,” he said, in reply to Lye Siew Weng’s (BN – Air Itam) question on the latest development of the project.
