More cheap homes for state

THE Penang Government has identified a total of 31.16ha of land on the mainland and island for phase two of its affordable housing project.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said details of the project would be released after acquiring a report from the Penang Development Corporation (PDC) and other experts.

“Meanwhile, under phase one, 4ha of land in Kampung Jawa in north Seberang Prai has been earmarked for mixed development, while 7.68ha in Ampang Jajar is catered to low-cost housing.

“Other identified plots of land included Bukit Mertajam in central Seberang Prai, Juru Heights, Teluk Kumbar and Lebuh Bakau,” he told a press conference during lunch break at the State Assembly building yesterday.

Lim said the state government was committed towards building more affordable housing in the state.

“Though we are building affordable houses, developers are still required to build 55% of houses that cost below RM500,000 in certain high density areas, including 30% of affordable houses,” he explained.

He said phase three of the affordable housing development would be announced later.
