THERE’S a need for more green spaces in Malaysia’s rapidly developing urban landscape.
Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin says future development plans should incorporate a good mix of concrete and greenery.
At present, a minimum 10% of an area to be developed must be allocated as a green space, such as public parks.
“But such green spaces are often tucked away in odd locations.
On the possibility of increasing the 10% quota for green lungs, Zuraida says such an option has to be studied first before she can make a decision.
