Special policy to assist people to own homes

SELANGOR is setting up a special policy for land development in order to assist residents to own a home.

In a reply to a question by Dr Shafie Abu Bakar (PAS-Bangi) who asked how the state was assisting residents to own a home and the areas identified for such homes, housing, building management and squatters committee chairman Iskandar Abdul Samad said those with land development of over 4.046ha in the Klang Valley would be subjected to 20% of low- cost houses, 20% medium-low cost houses and 10% medium-cost houses.

He added that development on less than 4.046ha of land would be subjected to build 30% medium cost houses.

Over and above this, Iskandar added that the maximum selling price of an affordable home (rumah mampu milik) would also be fixed accordingly.

For instance, low-cost houses within the local council area in the Klang Valley will be priced at RM42,000 while those within the local district area will be priced at RM60,000 and those on the outskirts are priced at RM30,000.

“The state has also introduced the ‘Selangor Affordable Homes New Concept’ programme which allows those with low income to own a comfortable home,” he said.

From 2005 to 2010 Selangor projected that it needs to have at least 435,775 homes in various types to accommodate some 7.3 million residents back then.

In line with the new scheme — targetted at low-income earners — the state is expected to build at least 10,000 homes through PKNS.

Five areas have been selected for the project next year — Bandar Baru Bangi in Hulu Langat, Antara Gapi in Hulu Selangor, Kota Puteri in Kuala Selangor, Kampung Seri Temenggong in Gombak and Taman Sains Selangor 2 in Sepang — which will see a total of 1,452 homes built.
