KUANTAN: A popular tourist spot along the beach near Kampung Balok will now become even more popular with the launch of Kampung Nemo, a special village for clownfish.

“Houses” will be built on the seabed of the site some 8km from the beach to attract clownfish.

Pahang Tourism and Culture Committee chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Sharkar Shamsudin said the dive site had always been visited by divers and what attracted them was the huge number of clownfish found here.

He said to make it more interesting for the divers, there was a need for artificial reefs to be placed at the diving spot, which was as big as a football field.

 

Tourism and Culture Ministry’s Pahang office director Datuk Idros Yahya was the one who came up with the idea to provide “homes” for the clownfish, said Mohd Sharkar.

“Another interesting part of this programme is that property developer Pasdec Corporation has willingly provided 10 artificial reefs for the clownfish.

“This is a good move in promoting the tourism sector through the participation of a corporate company. Pasdec has been building houses for the people and now it has taken another step forward by promoting tourism, in line with the National Blue Ocean Strategy,” Mohd Sharkar said after launching Kampung Nemo here.

Also present were Pasdec Holdings Berhad chief executive officer Datuk Zuber Shamsuri and Tourism Pahang general manager Datuk Ishak Mokhtar.

Mohd Sharkar added that Kampung Nemo, as a tourism product, could be the first of its kind in the world.

He said the village is expected to see an increase in the number of tourists and scuba divers while the local diving centres will reap the benefits.

“We also welcome individuals and companies to erect a ‘house’ in the village, by purchasing the artificial reefs at RM3,000 each. These will then be transported to the seabed at the site about 8m deep,” he said.

 

Kuantan draft plan unveiled - July 13, 2017

KUANTAN: A replacement for the Kuantan 2035 Local District Draft Plan has been unveiled and the public have one month to scrutinise it.

PLANMalaysia deputy director-general (planning) Rokibah Abdul Latif said the report will be displayed at the Kuantan Municipal Council (MPK) lobby and the PLANMalaysia@Pahang office at Kompleks Tun Razak, Indera Mahkota until Aug 10.

The replacement is for the first plan which was unveiled in 2015.

“The report can also be viewed at the PLANMalaysia and MPK websites,” she said at the launch of the draft plan viewing here.

Rokibah said the replacement was necessary considering the latest scenario, trends and pressures of development as well as the importance of state projects.

She said the replacement draft was made after taking into account the Government’s commitment at the national level and also the development of high impact projects such as the East Coast Rail Line, the new state administration centre in KotaSAS as well as the East Coast Economic Region master plan.

“The report explains in detail each component of proposed lot-based land use based on the development, analysis and projection cores that have been set according to five focus areas,” said Rokibah.

These focus areas are sustainable land development and disaster risk management, safe and inclusive community development, tourism and sustainable town design, economic, agro-based industries, forestry development and sustainable mining as well as effective administration.

Rokibah said five briefing sessions and a mobile counter will be set up during the publicity period at the Kuantan Urban Transformation Centre, the Balok, Gambang and Tanjung Lumpur public halls and the Sungai Lembing old theatre to get public feedback.

State Housing and Township Committee chairman Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail said the publicity period is a platform for the public to give their views and suggestions before the draft is gazetted by the state government.

“If the public requests for an extension, we may consider it. What is important is for the people to really understand what we are planning,” he said.

Present at the launch were state secretary Datuk Seri Muhammad Safian Ismail and MPK president Datuk Fadzilla Salleh.
