SHAH ALAM (September 1): The Selangor government did their due diligence before making the decision to downgrade the Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve (KLNFR) (pictured), according to the State Forestry Department (JPNS) .
In a statement released today, the department said the decision was in line with the state’s development goals of socio-economic stability and sustainability.
The JPNS also pointed out that the Selangor government still maintains about 46 percent of the area of the Mukim Tanjung Dua Belas Forest Reserve in Kuala Langat as a permanent forest reserve.
“The 17th Meeting of the State Executive Council (MMKN), which was confirmed by the 18th MMKN in May, decided that only 536.70 hectares of the entire KLNFR were approved for decommissioning under article 12 of the National Forestry (Adoption) Act of Selangor in 1985. ”the press release read.
The ministry added that the proposal to decommission the forest reserve had been the subject of a thorough public inquiry since the decision on the matter was received in November 2019.
“The state government also imposed several conditions on the developer, Gabungan Indah Sdn Bhd, including keeping 20% of the development area as green space as well as the need to transfer species of flora and fauna from ‘interest,’ he said. .
