Prime Minister Calls for Immediate Improvements to Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2040

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has called on the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to take immediate action in improving the Draft Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2040 (KLSP 2040) and to have the document gazetted before the end of this year.

Anwar, who chaired a briefing on Monday (July 17) to examine the report of the engagement sessions on the amendment of the Draft KLSP 2040, expressed his satisfaction with the presented report. During the session, he emphasized the importance of maintaining forest reserves and open spaces to fulfill the vision of making Kuala Lumpur a green, healthy, and vibrant city.

The prime minister also agreed that the provision of affordable housing should be expanded to meet the increasing demand from Kuala Lumpur residents. He emphasized that this proposal aligns with the government’s commitment to providing affordable housing through the concept of Madani Neighbourhood in KL.

Anwar’s statement on Tuesday highlighted the comprehensive and inclusive approach taken by the government in the preparation of KLSP 2040, with the goal of creating a city that caters to the needs of all its citizens.

The engagement sessions, held from May 18 to 26, garnered valuable feedback from 425 participants, resulting in a total of 639 views that will be taken into consideration for the improvement of KLSP 2040.

KLSP 2040 plays a significant role in the KL Development Plan 2040, outlining the vision, goals, strategic directions, and actions to shape Kuala Lumpur’s development over the next two decades. The draft document includes crucial aspects such as integrating land use with infrastructure planning, transportation, affordable housing provision, employment opportunities, public facilities, and enhancing the quality of the environment and public spaces.

With the prime minister’s call for immediate implementation and improvement, KLSP 2040 aims to create a sustainable and prosperous future for Kuala Lumpur, aligning with the city’s vision of becoming a City for All.
