Berita baik untuk penduduk Bukit Botak

SELAYANG, 1 NOVEMBER, 2010: The Selangor government, through the Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS), will spend RM140.7 million to develop Bukit Botak.

Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the development would involve 1,422 single-storey terrace houses which would be offered to the landowners for RM99,000 each.

"If the landowners don't want the houses, PKNS will buy them from the landowners at RM170,000 per unit," he said after the project's ground breaking ceremony here today.

The houses bought by PKNS would then be offered to the public at a price based on the size of land per unit, he added.

"The project is part of the economic stimulus package introduced by the state government which among others focuses on redevelopment of stalled housing projects like Bukit Botak," Khalid said.

He said the project was being carried not for profit but a charity.

The Bukit Botak development project involves 201 acres and a resettlement of 2,300 families who have been waiting for over 20 years since the project began in 1986.

The houses are expected to be ready for occupation by June 2012.
