DBKL Halts Approval of Nonconforming Projects

Pavither 15 May 2018

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has temporarily stopped the process of granting approval to all proposed property developments that do not comply with all existing rules, including those to be constructed in public spaces and hillslopes, reported Malaysiakini.

“(We will) put on hold all projects that have not been approved. Those with development orders from the district officer can proceed,” said DBKL Mayor Tan Sri Mohd Amin Nordin Abdul Aziz.

“Put on hold means projects will not be considered unless they comply with all requirements.” However, he did not specify which developments still need approval.

Amin Nordin revealed this to Lembah Pantai MP Fahmi Fadzil, Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng and Bukit Bintang MP Fong Kui Lun during the trio’s courtesy call to the Mayor’s office on Monday (14 May).
