Hands off Kuala Langat forest reserve, the people have spoken, says group

Selangor wants to cut down and develop 931ha of the Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve bordering Cyberjaya, Putrajaya, Putra Heights and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport to make way for ‘mixed development’. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, November 13, 2020.

THE coalition for the protection of the Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve (KLNFR) has urged the Selangor government to immediately withdraw the proposal to de-gazette the green zone for development, now that the state assembly has unanimously passed a motion on November 11 to protect the state’s gazetted forest reserves.

Pertahankan Hutan Simpan Kuala Langat Utara (PHSKLU) said the assemblymen had objected in particular to the Selangor government’s proposal to de-gazette the KLNFR for the purpose of a “mixed development project”.
