Time for a Town Plan for Tanjong Bunga

Tanjong Bunga is designated as a third -level town in the hierarchy of urban centres identified in the State Structure Plan. It's time we have a town plan based on rational town planning principles and vision of the residents.

There should be a proper town centre where the present market and community centre is located. BSG's upcoming development should be integrated with the site of the present RapidPenang station. Nearby there is the post office, health centre and police station. All these facilities should be within walking distance of each other and accessible by public transport.

There is also the need for sports and recreational facilities. The Town Park should be where the state land has been reclaimed off the previous Tanjung Club. Perhaps a public swimming pool could be built there too!
