De­bak needs re­de­vel­op­ment — Razi

The Borneo Post - - HOME -

DE­BAK is in need of a mas­ter plan to boost its growth, as part of the Ru­ral Trans­for­ma­tion Pro­gramme.

Ac­cord­ing to Razi Si­tam (BN-Saribas), De­bak has the po­ten­tial to be­come the cen­tre of eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties in Saribas con­stituency.

“The in­crease in pop­u­la­tion and eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties means De­bak needs re­de­vel­op­ment for its trans­for­ma­tion,” said Razi when de­bat­ing the state bud­get at the State Leg­isla­tive Assem­bly sit­ting yes­ter­day.

“I there­fore urge the gov­ern­ment to come up with a mas­ter plan for De­bak’s re­de­vel­op­ment, to ful­fil the needs es­pe­cially among the busi­ness com­mu­nity,” he said.

Razi also said more busi­ness premises and stalls needed to be built to cater to lo­cal en­trepreneurs.

On an­other mat­ter, Razi called for ap­proval to ex­pand Kam­pung Me­layu De­bak.

“Houses in the vil­lage are close to each other, and this has led to an en­vi­ron­ment not con­ducive for liv­ing with im­proper drainage sys­tem, un­sys­tem­atic lay­ing of elec­tri­cal ca­bles and nar­row roads,” he said.
