Executive Summary Penang Botanic Gardens (Draft Special Area Plan)

20 January 2012


The Special Area Plan (SAP) for Penang Botanic Garden is a detailed master plan that will guide furture direction of Penang Botanic Garden in its true sense. The SAP is prepared under the provision of section 16B of the Town and Country Planning Act 1976 (Act 172).

The Chief Minister of Penang has launched the draft Special Area Plan (SAP) for the Penang Botanic Gardens yesterday, 18 January 2012.

The Public is invited to view the one-month long exhibition at the Botanic Gardens and KOMTAR to provide your comments.

We hope that members can actively participate and provide your valuable input and recommendations. 

Please also help by:

  1. Requesting an extension of time due to the CNY holidays as well as Thaipusam which will effectively close access to the Gardens for 3 days.  Ask for an additional 4 weeks (one month)
  2. Requesting a public briefing by the Consultants and the State Planning Dept after Thaipusm. In the spirit of consultation and transparency, a briefing with a Q & A will allow a much clearer understanding of the SAP.
  3. Requesting that all objections and the State’s responses be made public.
