Low-Cost Houses Should Be Comfortable To Live In Too
The Covid-19 crisis has showed us how B40 group had suffered when they had to live in cramped conditions throughout the Movement Control Order period.
Concerned about this issue, Housing and Local Government Minister, YB Zuraida Kamaruddin said housing should not be less than 900 sq ft in size, especially for low cost and affordable housing projects targeted at the B40 group.
This is to ensure that even large families will have adequate and comfortable space to live in.
At the same time, she urged developers to concentrate more on affordable housing projects priced RM500,000 and below, instead of aiming for high-end developments.
