THERE are plans to turn the towns of Bandar Baru Salak Selatan, Kota Warisan and Bagan Lalang into commercial areas and tourist attractions, said Sepang Municipal Council (MPSp) president Datuk Puasa Md Taib.

The plan to do so, he said, had been stated in the Sepang Municipal Council Draft Local Plan 2025.

The plan was now on public display, he said, calling to Sepang residents and landowners to review the draft plan and make the necessary objections and suggestions.

“The Sepang district is six times bigger than Petaling Jaya and it is rapidly developing,” he said after launching the draft plan.

He added that Sepang was also the main door into the country via the KL International Airport (KLIA) and KL International Airport 2 (KLIA2) located in the district.

“With two new highways being built for easier access to the airports, I am confident that Sepang will be the new attraction in Selangor,” he said.

The highways are MEX 2 Highway linking Putrajaya to KLIA2, and a new highway from Paroi, Negri Sembilan to KLIA.

On getting objection from landowners, Puasa was confident that the council would not receive any.

“We have worked hard to come up with the draft plan, and we worked closely with the councillors who have received feedback from the residents.

“So I don’t think we will get any objection, but we welcome any suggestion to make Sepang a better place to live in,” he said.
