GEORGE TOWN: The Penang Municipal Council (MPPP) has officially re-zoned four localities on the island from residential to commercial status.

Penang Municipal Council (MPPP) planning committee alternate chairman Felix Ooi Keat Hin said that be- tween 2009 and last year, MPPP had completed its study on the re-zoning of Gurney Drive, Jalan Kelawai, Jalan Masjid Negeri and Jalan Bagan Jer- mal from residential to commercial status.

The re-zoning applies for the whole stretch of Gurney Drive, Jalan Kelawai and Jalan Masjid Negeri while for Jalan Bagan Jermal, it is from the junction of Jalan Burma to Jalan Kelawai.

He added that the re-zoning exer- cise was due to the rapid development in the respective areas where there was growing demand for commercial activities.

“House owners, who wish to conduct business on their premises there, have to apply for the licencing changes from the council.

“However, those who want to maintain their premises for residential use need not apply,” he said when contacted yesterday.

Ooi said the council was also processing the application of planning permission and to change the status of the Bali Hai seafood restaurant from residential to commercial use.
