KOTA TINGGI: The Social Transformation Programme (STP) under the National Blue Ocean Strategy will benefit the low-income community in Johor.

Deputy Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique said the programme would also help to upgrade small and medium sized housing as well as maintain the condition of the buildings.

“This is a good programme for the community in Johor and we need to repair and upgrade flats for the low-income group, too,” she said after launching the STP in Bandar Tenggara here.

Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government deputy secretary-general Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud, who was at the event, said the STP brought in investments worth RM91mil to Bandar Tenggara that included the People’s Housing Project (PPR) and the Ujana Tasik Bandar Tenggara park.

The PPR project worth RM75mil is scheduled to complete by 2020 while the park is 75% completed.
