Why You Need to Know About the Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2040

The Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2040 (KLSP2040) is the highest planning document for Kuala Lumpur, and contains DBKL's proposed development policies for the next 20 years. According to DBKL, the KLSP2040 gives a detailed description of the development policies for Kuala Lumpur, and will account for the city’s changing social landscape. The plan aims to address key issues such as public transportation, affordable housing, job opportunities and environmental quality improvement in Kuala Lumpur. It's mandatory for DBKL to publish the draft for public viewing and participation - which was done in 2020 - as all stakeholders must be given a chance to provide their input and have their concerns addressed, before the plan is gazetted. After a long silence, there was a recent briefing by DBKL, where stakeholders, including Selamatkan Kuala Lumpur, were surprised to learn that the Draft KLSP2040 had been revised and updated, and is pending endorsement by the Prime Minister. However, stakeholders have not been asked to give feedback to this new draft - why is this integral process of getting responses from stakeholders not being followed? We discuss the many issues surrounding the gazettement of this important plan with Datuk M. Ali, the Chairman of SKL, and Charles Tan, a member of SKL.
