JOHOR BARU: The proposal to build a new People's Housing Project (PPR) in Larkin is expected to be included in the coming Budget 2023 by the Local Government Development Ministry.

Deputy Local Government Development Minister Akmal Nasrullah Mohd Nasir said the proposal would be presented to minister Nga Kor Ming and the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) office soon.

"We have received many requests for this, not only from locals here but also from government agencies, since 2018.

"With the close cooperation of the Johor state government, we hope that this will be able to be included in the coming tabling of the Budget 2023 on Feb 24," he said during a press conference after visiting the proposed PPR site at Larkin Industrial Area (Dato Onn), here on Monday (Jan 30).

Akmal Nasrullah added that the total development cost, the units involved, and the timeframe of the project were currently still being finalised and would only be known after it is tabled.

"There are two proposed locations for this project, namely the Larkin Industrial Area and Kampung Ungku Mohsin.

"Even though the land belongs to the state, we still need to conduct thorough research on this land as it used to be an industrial building," he said, adding that the decision would also discuss if the project would either be a walk-up apartment or a high-rise apartment.
