Councillor blasts MBPJ for approving projects against structure plans

DEVELOPMENT projects approved by the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) are against the direction of the National Physical Plan, National Urbanisation Policy and Selangor Structure Plan, said MBPJ councillor Mak Khuin Weng.

Mak had lambasted at the way the council approved development projects.

One such attack was made during the recent full board meeting at the approval given to a project in Ara Damansara.

‘The approvals given by the council — not just the recent case in Ara Damansara but across the board — have violated the statutory documents of the National Physical Plan, National Urbanisation Policy and Selangor Structure Plan,” Mak told StarMetro in a recent interview at his service centre.

He said these documents overrode the local plans, and to add to that, the Petaling Jaya Local Plan 2 (RTPJ2) on which recent approvals were based was not even gazetted.

He highlighted the following clauses and policies as evidence that the council had gone on the opposite direction of the growth pattern intended in these documents:

● In the National Urbanisation Policy, NUP9(ii) states that “adequate public open space should be provided by the adoption of a standard of 2ha per 1,000 urban population”.

“If they argue that the standard is to be averaged out throughout the entire conurbation, then MBPJ also has no business in approving development projects because the Greater Kuala Lumpur Conurbation includes Petaling Jaya, Shah Alam and Putrajaya, and the correct committee that is empowered to look at development projects is the Regional Planning Committee. Where is this committee?” he asked.

● In the National Physical Plan, NPP11 (xii) reads that state land within the urban limits shall be reserved for public use;

● Point 4.5.4 of the Plan states that “the present overall gross urban density of approximately 29 people per hectare will need to decrease slightly to 25 per hectare”.

● In the Selangor Structure Plan, Policy FZ12 states that in-fill development and brownfield development should be given priority while greenfield development must be monitored with stringent control;

● Policy FZ13 is to ensure that the planning and development of settlement centres in the Kuala Lumpur Conurbation is coordinated under every development, particularly for towns bordering Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya;

● Point 4.6.4 (d) emphasises the need to use the State Structure Plan in the development process. Development plans shall be gazetted and facts published in the newspapers. Every development must need consent from the state authority, not MBPJ;

● Figure 4.14 shows that the population for Petaling Jaya was to be 250,000 and business floor area limited to 0.5 million sq m; and

● Point 4.5.3 (i) (b) mentions about directing development to areas outside the Klang Valley region and reducing development density in the Klang Valley region.
