102 projects approved for KL
> RM10 billion initiative includes affordable homes and housing for civil servants
KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 102 urban development projects have been approved under the Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2020 (KLSP).
Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad ( pix), said Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) received 176 project applications.
He added that there were 74 projects that were yet to be approved due to discrepancies in relation to the original KLSP.
“These developments were initially given the green light but they had to stop because they contravened the Plan.
“These are mixed development projects in various categories that include transit homes, RUMAWIP (Federal Territories affordable homes) and PPAM (housing for civil servants), so we will have to review them.
“The total estimated value of these projects is over RM10 billion,” he said after chairing the third Consultative Committee meeting yesterday.
The meeting was also attended by 11 MPs and Mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan.
On another matter, Khalid said the appointment of eight new DBKL advisory board members will be finalised at the end of this month.
“We already have a list (of candidates) and an oath-taking ceremony will be held soon.
“The majority (of the candidates for the new DBKL board of advisers) comprise professionals but there are also politicians who will be appointed as they will be able to channel their views to DBKL in the face of challenges and plans for 2040,” he said.
