Planning & Local Democracy


Date: 6th October 2012 (Saturday)
Time: 8pm
Venue: Auditorium C, KOMTAR

 

“Planning has always been an area where local participation is essential. Whether it is because of hill cutting, destructive land reclamation, heritage vandalism, ad hoc traffic and transport planning, lack of a clear ‘affordable’ housing policy, or something else, there are many Penangites and Residents’ Associations who are expressing their serious disquiet. This event will continue to raise the issues and propose solutions, so that the future of our state is better protected by a more inclusive, accountable and responsive planning process.”

“Perancangan sentiasa menjadi satu bidang di mana penyertaan tempatan adalah penting. Sama ada dalam isu pemotongan cerun-cerun bukit, projek tanah penambakan yang merosakkan persekitaran, vandalisme terhadap warisan asli, perancangan lalu lintas dan pengangkutan yang bersifat sementara, kurangnya penjelasan terhadap dasar perumahan kos sederhana dan seterusnya, terdapat banyak penduduk Pulau Pinang dan Persatuan Penduduk yang menyuarakan pendapat serius mereka. Perbincangan ‘roundtable’ ini akan terus membangkitkan isu dan mencadangkan penyelesaian, supaya masa depan negara kita lebih dilindungi oleh proses perancangan yang lebih inklusif, bertanggungjawab dan responsif. “
