Sepang Municipal Council (MPSp) president Mohd Sayuthi Bakar
SOME developers and residents in Cyberjaya may be able to enjoy a lower assessment rate.
Sepang Municipal Council (MPSp) president Mohd Sayuthi Bakar hinted that the announcement of the new rate might be made at the Sepang Towards Green Growth and Sustainable Development seminar on Nov 26 at Cyberview Resort and Spa.
He said buildings with a green certificate and homes equipped with green technology such as solar panels may enjoy the lower assessment rate.
“However, this is yet to be confirmed,” said Sayuthi after the council’s full board meeting yesterday.
The incentive is similar to what Petaling Jaya residents are enjoying.
He added that the seminar was one of the initiatives by the council to make Cyberjaya a low-carbon city.
Sayuthi said the developers would be briefed on how to manage their construction sites to reduce pollution.
“Heavy vehicles at these sites add to the pollution in the area,” he said.
Meanwhile, he assured Taman Putra Prima residents in Puchong that the council was looking into building a community hall.
The residents had asked for a community hall during a town hall meeting on Oct 28.
“The land is available and we are looking for a developer to help fund the project,” he said.
He added that if no developer was found, the council would bear the cost.
