Publicity period for Shah Alam local draft plan extended

THERE will be a four-week extension for the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) local draft plan 2035 publicity period, which was initially scheduled to end yesterday after being displayed for a month.

This extension until Sept 26 will give stakeholders and residents in Shah Alam more time to submit objections by post or give feedback online.

“We received feedback from some residents that they needed more time to study the plan and requested for it to be

extended,” said Shah Alam mayor Datuk Haris Kasim after chairing the city council’s monthly full board meeting.

He added that one resident even sent in a handwritten letter requesting for the publicity period to be extended as the latter needed more time to study the local draft plan in detail.

Since the launch on July 27, the city council received a total of 870 objections from residents on proposals in the local draft plan.

There are a number of changes between the previous Shah Alam Local Plan 2020 and the new one, mostly on the rezoning of land to fit the current development infrastructure and also to adopt previous proposals and suggestions.

“The most objections we received to date is about 500 from Section U9 residents objecting to the proposed residential development plan at a private golf course.

“We received about 180 objections for the road development which will cut through the Shah Alam Community Forest,” he said.

He reiterated that the golf course was private land while the forest where the road cuts through belonged to the state


Haris said all objections would be tabulated and reviewed at the end of the publicity period, after which a dialogue session would be called between those who objected and other relevant parties to discuss the matter.

Feedback will be sent to the state government where a final decision will then be made.

“Now with our digital system, everything is made easier as the figures and objections are tabulated instantly and we can tell which area the objections are for, unlike previously when things were done manually and took longer,” he added.
