Aiming To Build 35,000 Affordable Homes

PANDAN 28th AUGUST: The Housing Standing Committee is aiming to build 35,000 units of affordable homes within the next five years.

The EXCO, Ir. Iskandar Abdul Samad, said the State Government’s subsidiaries, such as the State of Selangor Development Corporations (PKNS) and Permodalan Negeri Selangor Berhad (PNSB), are building affordable housing projects that were launched prior to the 13th General Elections (GE).

“We have launched a number of housing projects such as Section U12 in Shah Alam, Sabak Bernam Sweetwater Farm, Antara Gapi, Serendah and Sutera Damansara,” he said.

He explained that the State Government’s affordable housing strategy has better direction because it meets the low and middle-income earners’ range.

“At most, the dearest price tag for an affordable home would be RM150,000 under the State Government policy. If we compare that to the Federal Government, PR1MA Home can fetch up to RM300,000. This proves that the Federal Government’s policy is on par unlike the Federal Government’s,” he said.
