IPOH: A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Perak Housing and Property Board (LPHP) and the National Housing Department (JPN) in an effort to address troubled housing projects in the state.

Minister of Housing and Local Government, Nga Kor Ming, and Menteri Besar Perak, Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad, witnessed the exchange of the MoU at the Chief Minister’s Office, Bangunan Perak Darul Ridzuan.

Saarani said, for the first time, the MoU involved direct cooperation between the state government and the federal government.

“This historic collaboration also marks a turning point in our approach to the long-standing housing issues affecting the people.

“This strategic collaboration focuses on three main aspects: rigorous monitoring of troubled housing developments in Perak, comprehensive collection of technical data and information, and systematic recovery of stalled projects,” he said at a press conference after the MoU exchange ceremony.

He said the state government is committed to ensuring that the MoU is not just a document exchange but a dedicated action plan that will be implemented.

“So far, five projects have been identified as stalled in Perak, including D’Aman Residensi Meru Raya, Ipoh; Taman Tapah Permai, Tapah; Taman Cempaka II in Manjung; Taman Seri Emas, Kampar; and Taman Limau Mas in Beruas.

“In addition, the latest data from JPN shows there are 58 housing projects involving 4,007 housing units categorised as troubled projects in Perak up to May 32, 2024,” he said.

He emphasised that this cooperation underscores the importance of addressing issues that burden the people.
