Application for sports training centre in England rejected


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s application to set up a High Performance Training Centre in Brickendonbury, England, has been rejected. 

The East Herts Council Development Control Committee on Wednesday night voted against the proposal by the National Sports Institute (NSI). 

NSI director-general Datuk Dr Ramlan Abdul Aziz, who was present at the hearing, said that it was unfortunate that the decision had gone this way.  

“We are disappointed. We now have to prepare a report to be submitted to the Cabinet Committee for Sports headed by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, for guidance on the next course of action,” he said. 

“We can either appeal, submit a fresh application, which will be a faster process, or not pursue the matter at all, all of which depends on the decision by the Cabinet Committee.”

I’m glad they had some sense to vote this out. Spend the money on the poor! RM 490 million can go a long, long way, and mr johnny here gives some good suggestions…

  1. if the govt are so keen in improving the sports scenario in malaysia, they should start from the basic. kids nowadays are playing games – computer games as sports facilities are getting lesser each day due to poor town planning or maybe something else………

  2. You said it!
    Its so hard to find a decent place to go swimming in KL, nowhere we can have a decent game of squash without spending a bomb, no decent (read safe) cycling routes.
