RESIDENTS of Kampung Baru were told to decide the future of their birth place and family- owned land as several development plans have been slated for the site in the draft Kuala Lumpur City Plan (KLCP) 2020.
“You can either choose to accept it fully, partially or object to it completely because this is your birth place and you are the land owners,'' said Titiwangsa MP Dr Lo' Lo' Mohd Ghazali during a forum hosted by her service centre recently on the draft KLCP 2020.
Lo’Lo was with representatives from Kampung Baru Development Association, Malay Agriculture Settlement as well as lawyers.
A committee specialising in the draft KLCP 2020 from her service centre briefed and highlighted several issues and key areas in the plan to the residents.
The 150 residents who attended had mixed feelings towards the draft KLCP 2020. Some objected partially while others objected to it completely, saying that DBKL did not get the residents involved in preparing the draft plan.
“I am saddened that the residents were not involved at all in the planning of the draft KLCP 2020. DBKL should have invited them and listened to their views,” said Lo’Lo.
Kampng Baru has more than 14,000 residents with 12 villages, a majority of which are under the MAS land area which is administered by MAS Admi-nistrative Board.
Deadline for submission of objection forms is Aug 31.
Those in Kampung Baru who wish to submit the forms via the Titiwangsa MP’s office can call 03-2698 0025 for details.
