The Kuala Lumpur Local Plan 2040 (KLLP 2040), which is poised to replace the Kuala Lumpur City Plan 2020 (KLCP 2020), is scheduled to be made available for public feedback in January 2024. City dwellers, as well as all interested parties, are invited to share their feedback and suggestions for enhancement to facilitate collaborative development planning for Kuala Lumpur.
Datuk Azman Abidin, the political secretary to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who oversees the Federal Territories and Local Government Unit, emphasized the importance of public input, including feedback from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and residents’ associations, to expedite the implementation of Kuala Lumpur’s development.
Azman elaborated that proposals or feedback could be submitted through exhibitions conducted at various public locations, including government offices, as well as through online channels. The public will have a one-month window to provide their input.
Following the feedback collection phase, a three-month hearing process will be initiated, with the duration dependent on the volume of objections received from stakeholders.
Earlier, Azman revealed that the Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2040 (KLSP 2040), encompassing the vision, objectives, strategic directions, and actionable plans for guiding Kuala Lumpur’s development over the next two decades, had received approval from the Prime Minister on October 4 and was gazetted on October 19.
He also announced that the official launch of KLSP 2040 by the Prime Minister is anticipated before November 23. Residents of the city will have the opportunity to obtain a hard copy of KLSP 2040 for RM120, and it will also be accessible online.
In July, Prime Minister Anwar had directed Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to make improvements to the draft KLSP 2040 before its gazettement. Key areas of focus include preserving forest reserve areas, expanding open spaces, and meeting the demand for affordable housing among city residents.
