SHAH ALAM, 8 FEB: The State Government will study and review development policies and regulations on issues related to land management policies in Selangor to ensure swift and orderly management in efforts to safeguard state assets so that the assets are not abandoned at the expense of the state.
Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said that this also has to be done as an effort to evaluate and measure the success of actions implemented prior to this.
“This has to be done at the same time in order to improve land management procedures such as disposal issues, alienation of land, settler’s problems, the imposition of land premium rates, the gross development value, the issuing of temporary occupation and land confiscation.
“This also includes providing space to formulate new policies to address various issues and land matters,” he said.
He said this when officiating a feedback workshop regarding Selangor state land management policies for the years 2008-2012 here at the Shah Alam Convention Centre.
Also present was the Director of the State Land and Mines Office (PTGS), Datuk Kamarulzaman Jamil and the Selangor Welfare, Women’s Affairs, Science, Technology, Innovation and Culture Exco, Rodziah Ismail.
Meanwhile, Kamarulzaman said that the one-day workshop was held to gather views, recommendations and comments related to the implementation circular policies and instructions from Local Authorities.
“This includes the coordination of existing policies and regulations such as the Land Use Guidelines. In relation to that, we will re-examine existing policies and make necessary improvements in terms of policy implementation and we will assess and analyse the extent of the PTGS enforcement circulars,” he said.
The workshop began at 7.30 in the morning till six in the evening and was attended by about 500 participants from Local Authorities, Village Heads, members from Residents Committees and PTGS officers.
