KPKT urged to improve STA enforcement and guidelines

Property News/ 26 October 2021 No comments


The Ministry of Housing and Local Government (KPKT) must immediately improve the enforcement of short-term accommodation guidelines (STA) to curb the change of use of units in stratified residential buildings without permission

The matter was raised by Penang Island City Council (MBPP) councilor, Lee Kim Noor at the adjournment speech session of the Ordinary Council Meeting No. 10/2021 which was held online through the Zoom Meeting on 25 October 2021.

According to Kim Noor, the law on STA in the state is very clear that stratified residential units cannot be turned into Airbnb unless there is a change of use of the building.

Also raised was the proposal that cases related to the change of use of short-term accommodation and its enforcement be brought to the Strata Management Tribunal Court.

“And in this way, the occupants of the stratified residential building can sleep soundly without having to worry about Airbnb rental in the adjacent unit.

“Furthermore, in the COVID-19 outbreak situation where some parties rented the Airbnb unit as a quarantine place apart from the problem of noise, garbage and damage to common property,” he said.

In the same session, Kim Noor also praised the latest initiative introduced by the local authority, namely the ‘i-Temu’ platform, an appointment system for visitors who wish to meet with the relevant departments in MBPP.

“However, the method (to some extent) hinders the ability of taxpayers because they have to spend to buy quick test kits.

“So, I would like to suggest additional initiatives to the platform (i-Temu) where taxpayers can choose to use hotlines, emails, video calls via WhatsApp (applications) or WhatsApp (messages).

“Each option must be given a complaint reference number and the name of the officer involved along with an email.

“I know that all this has been prepared but the indicators of each complaint are not given due attention,” he explained.

The meeting was chaired by Dato’ Ar. Yew Tung Seang (Mayor of MBPP) through teleconference, attended by Council Members, relevant department heads and senior officials.

Earlier, the Mayor of MBPP, Dato ’Ar. Yew Tung Seang chaired the Ordinary Meeting of the Council by teleconference which was also attended by Council Members, department heads and relevant senior officials.

Bukit Kukus paired road expected to open by end of this year

Penang’s Bukit Kukus paired road, touted to be the highest elevated route in the country, will be partially open to traffic by year’s end.

The road, which rises 55m from the pile caps, links Bandar Baru Air Itam and Relau and hugs the slopes on the southern reaches of the Penang Hill range.

Officially called the Paya Terubong Paired Road, it spans 5.5km, with the Penang Island City Council (MBPP) building a 3.3km stretch.

The remaining 1.4km and 800m stretches are being built by developer PLB Land Sdn Bhd and Geo Valley Sdn Bhd, respectively.

State infrastructure and transport committee chairman Zairil Khir Johari said the city council’s 3.3km stretch was 96% complete, pending final work on a 1.6km stretch on the main route and a 500m flyover linking Jalan Tun Sardon and Balik Pulau.

Zairil said the road was supposed to be completed last year, but work was delayed due to the movement control order (MCO), five extensions of time (EOTs) due to land acquisition issues, slope stabilisation work, the relocation of utility lines as well as landslide and blasting permits.

Construction work on the road began on Jan 14, 2016, by main contractor Syarikat Yuta Maju Sdn Bhd. The project was put on hold on Oct 19, 2018, following a landslide that killed 13 workers, and resumed on Jan 28 the following year.

The cost of the road is RM545 million, with the city council forking out RM275 million. PLB Land will spend RM150 million for its stretch and Geo Valley will spend RM120 million, a state assembly reply showed.

Zairil said despite the delays, the city council’s cost to build its portion of the road remained at RM275 million.

Zairil added that as of now, PLB’s road building progress was at 15% and Geo Valley, at 12%. He said Geo Valley’s portion was stalled due to an objection hearing, while PLB Land, as a white knight contractor, would build according to its cash flow.
