Development Concept

In line with its development philosophy of dedicating its resources towards the betterment of the people and quality of life, it is the aspiration of Bertam Perdana to evolve a “ new lifestyle” for all Malaysian, and with its, a “new attitude” of spirited growth and progress.

Development Profile


The site measures 3,755 acres located in the North Seberang Perai district of Penang has been earmarked as the “new focal point of the nation’s growth”. The new township will form the future district and administrative center of North Seberang Perai. This “self contained“ township will incorporate modern commercial centers, residential housing, complete with modern amenities and public services. All these are part of the Bertam Development’s policy of providing “fully integrated quality living” and well-planned environment, in a choice location.

The site is strategically situated within the area of new district administrative center of North Seberang Perai. The Draft Structure Plan of Seberang Perai (1985 – 2000), Kepala Batas has been earmarked as the major growth center of the north. Areas around Kepala Batas have also been earmarked as a Development Priority Area for the northern district. On a larger scale, the subject site is situated within the Northern States’ Growth Triangle comprising Perak, Penang, Kedah and Perlis. Regionally it is located within the Indonesia – Malaysia –Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT – GT). Hence, the plan to develop the site into an integrated township comprising residential, commercial and industrial correspond with the growth strategies of the Structure Plan and Penang State Government efforts in establishing Kepala Batas as the new administrative center of the North District, SPU.

As Kepala Batas will take over from Butterworth’s role as the administrator of SPU, the population of Kepala Batas is expected to experience growth.

In migrations will take place in the medium to long term as government servants move in order to be closer to work place.

Since the subject site is located within the growth area of Kepala Batas, it presents a scope for industrialization, thus promising employment prospects for the population of SPU.

The target to ensure Kepala Batas ,namely BERTAM PERDANA develop into a regional growth center, warrant a prudent rationale on components of the development. Studies indicated a mixture of development type would be appropriate.
