SUBANG – The construction and development of International Harbour in Patimban Subang Regency needs changes especially for its spatial design around the area since it would become a Port City. It happens since there are some possibilities that there will be a new industrial area around.

More specifically, there are some infrastructures to support the harbour that will be developed soon such as roads or highway (if it is needed), railroad, the electricity whether PLTG or PLTU, fresh water supply, IPAL or the Installation for Processing Liquid Waste, and Reception Facilities.
Another support facility that will be built is a school or academy to prepare local human resources that will support citizens’ skill so they can participate in developing Patimban to be more advance.
