Local gov't council agrees to gated community guidelines

PUTRAJAYA, Thursday 2 September 2010 (Bernama) -- The National Council for Local Government (MNKT) today agreed to the Gated Community and Guarded Neighbourhood guidelines at its meeting chaired by Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The deputy prime minister said the state governments should adhere to the guidelines should they intend to implement the gated community and guarded neighbourhood concepts.

He said the guidelines on the two aspects outlined the fundamentals defining gated community and guarded neighbourhood, besides other matters which had to be adhered to, including standards.

"Between the two, a gated community is easier to manage because it is similar to a private housing scheme which has its own strata titles," he told a news conference after the meeting.

Muhyiddin said the guidelines would be enforced based on the Strata Titles Act 1985 and the Street, Drainage and Building Act 1974.

He said the meeting also discussed guidelines on the development of the swiftlet farming industry which generated an annual revenue of up to RM1 billion. 

"The industry is one of the National Key Economic Activities (NKEAs)of the agricultural sector with the potential for tremendous growth. So, we provide the guidelines for the sector to achieve greater growth in the future," he said. 

Muhyiddin said new swiftlet farming ventures were disallowed in heritage sites, in Penang and Melaka, while the existing farms were only allowed for a period of three years. 

The meeting also discussed the need to control dengue, which registered a 10 per cent increase in the number of cases and a 51 per cent increase in the number of deaths compared to last year.

"Between January and August last year, 29,700 cases and 68 deaths were reported while in the same period this year there were 32,688 cases and 103 deaths. The local authorities have been reminded to step up preventive measures," he said.
