THE social housing issues affecting homeowners at People’s Housing Projects (PPR), particularly in the Klang Valley, necessitate holistic and comprehensive approaches to make sure the residents take full charge of cleanliness and facilities in their housing areas.

A recently published report entitled “Decent Shelter for the Urban Poor: A Case Study of PPR” by the Khazanah Research Institute highlighted the poor state of facilities and management issues in PPR, including insufficient maintenance and poor repair works that resulted in broken lifts, as well as outdated designs and poor construction quality. All this would create uneasiness among residents – the lack of working lifts would especially concern the elderly, disabled, and handicapped who live on high floors.
