Property News/ 20 September 2011 Leave a comment

The Penang Government is pro-posing the redevelopment of Swettenham Pier and wants feedback and views from the public on its plans.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the state was considering putting together a Request for Proposal (RFP) application for the development of an integrated waterfront and seaport at Lot 4 and an adjoining lot at the pier.

“We are considering the RFP for the development of the pier which sits on land belonging to the state government,” he said at a press conference on Saturday.

In a handout that was later distributed to reporters, it was stated that both lots had seabed soil and they covered 1.45ha altogether.

Lim said the state was willing to listen to views from all inclu-ding the Penang Port Commis- sion.

“The state is thinking of deve-loping the pier so it can be better organised and professionally run,” he said.

“Where necessary, expansion projects can be carried out to optimise its value.

“We hope to commercialise the pier,” he said.
