Selangor to review forest reserve permits

It is good news that, beginning next month, the Selangor State Government will be reviewing permits for development on land gazetted as forest reserves.

According to an article in The Sun , the permits have been frozen following a moratorium by the state government on development in forest reserve land.  The article goes on to state that the state executive council will either approve or reject these permits based on the details, facts and need for the proposed developments.

Earlier this year, this blog site highlighted a housing development that was advertised as being built within a forest reserve. (find the blog entry here) .  We hope that this will be investigated, too.
