KUANTAN: The Pahang government will approve more land for the Makmur Housing Project to enable low-income earners in the state own homes.
Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail said the move was part of carrying out the
government duty of providing infrastructure and basic needs, including housing, which were among the primary needs of the people.‘’The Makmur project is aimed at ensuring they can own homes. The price at RM80,000 a unit is very cheap and the condition is that the applicant does not have a home yet.‘’The state government does not profit, in fact it loses revenue because the developers do not have to pay land premium.
“We are doing this for the well-being of the people, ’’ he said after launching the Kampung Tiram Makmur Housing Project here.
The project, which was developed by Zon Majuria Sdn Bhd
on a 40.4ha land, involved the construction of 635 units of 800 sq ft houses, with the first phase of 100 units expected to be completed in 2022.Wan Rosdy said to-date, the Kampung Tiram Makmur Housing Project had received 1,700 applications, adding that those who were not able to buy a house at the project can try later as there would be more of such schemes in the near future.
For example, Wan Rosdy said the state government was in the process of approving a 404 ha site to build 10,000 units of affordable homes in Indera Sempurna here, which would also include 3,000 units of Makmur houses.
In Pahang, other than Makmur houses, the state government is also developing the 1Malaysia Housing Project (PR1MA) involving the construction of three-bedroom houses with two bathrooms which were sold for as low as RM150,000. — Bernama
