Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) Planning Department director Ismail Muhamad said USJ 1 was a hotspot for illegal factories while new villages such as those in Seri Kembangan had many illegal cottage industries.
“Some are built too close to roads, some have encroached into neighbouring land and a few are due to disagreements among co-owners,” he said after the council’s full board meeting.
He also listed several types of unlicensed factories and gave the operators until Sept 30 next year to apply for legalisation.
Ismail added that this was in line with the Selangor government’s programme to legalise illegal factories.
State local government, public transport and new village development committee chairman Ng
Sze Han recently launched a
programme to legalise factories and regulate operations in Selangor.
Those who failed to legalise operations after the Sept 30 deadline could be fined RM500 and an additional RM100 per day will be imposed from the cut-off date.
MPSJ president Noraini Roslan suggested that proactive measures be taken at flood-prone areas as a way to prevent damage caused by flash floods.
It was also announced during the meeting that MPSJ councillor Datuk Kamaruzaman Ibrahim died last Saturday.
He was the councillor for zone 15 that covered Taman Perindustrian Puchong Utama, Taman Perindustrian Puchong Utama Section 1 and 2, and Taman Puchong Utama.
