KUALA LUMPUR, July 19 — The Kuala Lumpur City Plan 2020 will finally be gazetted, Federal Territories Minister Khalid Samad said.
In a written parliamentary answer to Fahmi Fadzil (PKR-Lembah Pantai), Khalid said the plan that has remained in draft form for years under the Barisan Nasional government will be made official by the end of this year.
“This is happy news for all the Federal Territories MPs, the NGOs and residents who have been pushing for this,” Fahmi said.
Fahmi said that the previous government’s refusal to gazette the plan for years had caused unplanned development in Kuala Lumpur.
“The refusal of the previous government to gazette the plan had caused unplanned development in the city,” he said.
The Kuala Lumpur City Plan was first drafted in 2008, four years after the Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2020 was gazetted.
