The Penang government has approved two applications for the construction of foreign workers’ dormitories in Teluk Kumbar.

State Local Government, Town and Country Planning Committee chairman H’ng Mooi Lye said based on the approval that has been certified by the Penang State Planning Committee, an estimated 32,680 foreign workers would be placed in the Teluk Kumbar area.

”The application for the dorm project involves the construction of a 27-storey building block of workers’ dormitories.

”It consists six units of shops on the first level, recreational facilities on the first and second levels and 26 floors of workers’ dormitories involving 512 units on lots 1859, 1860 and 1865 by Chong Company Sdn Bhd,” he told the state legislative assembly sitting on Monday.

H’ng was responding to a question by Mohamad Shukor Zakaria (Pas-Pulau Betong) with regards to the status of the construction of foreign workers’ dorms in Teluk Kumbar.

Elaborating, H’ng said the second application was the rezoning from the general housing zone, coastal reserve zone and existing road zone to the general business zone as well as increasing the height of the building from five to 30 floors for development on lot 1435 and 1437, Mukim 9, Teluk Kumbar by Zantalite Enterprise (M) Sdn Bhd.

“Until now, the Penang Island City Council (MBPP) has only received a planning permission application from Chong Company on June 27 and the application is still in the consideration process,” he said.

Meanwhile, H’ng said, as for now, the locations of lots 1859, 1860 and 1865 by Chong Company were still the same in accordance with the decision of the Penang State Planning Committee on June 25, last year.

“Any proposed location transfer needs to be referred to the state authority for reconsideration,” he added.
