Exco: Selangor plans to redevelop old flats

By Zareef Muzammil

SHAH ALAM, Dec 23 — The Selangor government has plans to redevelop all the dilapidated flats in the state.

State executive councillor for housing Rodziah Ismail said the state is willing to consider applications from any developer to redevelop the flats.

“We already have housing plans to restore, rejuvenate, and for full redevelopment, in fact, we have made these three as policies and now those who want to implement them need to follow the guidelines,” said Rodziah Ismail at a press conference at Hotel De’Palma here yesterday.

She said the state government had successfully restored a flat under the Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) project at Datum Jelatek, Taman Keramat, Ampang.

“Therefore, I believe there are many more places we can develop together,” he said, commenting on the Federal Territories Ministry’s intention to implement urban renewal programs in all flats over 40 years old, including those built by private developers.

Its minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa said flats which were no longer suitable for occupancy, small in size and were old structures would be rebuilt with various facilities and equipment.
