Press Statement by Chow Kon Yeow 7 Feb 2011

This morning I have directed the President of the Penang Island Municipal Council Hajah Patahiyah Ismail and officials to speed up restructuring activities in Batu Feringghi.

The MPPP President will be meeting water sports operators this Friday to work out solutions on the zoning proposal in Batu Feringghi.

Meanwhile, the MPPP will continue to enforce the ban on horse-riding, quadbike riding and water sport activities.

In Batu Feringghi During The Ban

The ban will allow the MPPP to engage with all stakeholders, work on the installation of safety buoys and nettings and the licensing of beach operators.

The MPPP has been able to reduce horse-riding and quadbike activities since the ban took effect last December.

The gazebos to relocate foot reflexology operators are near completion and traders will be issued licenses after the Chinese New Year holidays.
