115 receive approval letters for extension scheme


KUCHING: A total of 115 individuals received their letters of approval for the Kampung Rejang Baru’s village extension scheme in Tanjung Manis.

Urban Development and Natural Resources Assistant Minister Datuk Len Talif Salleh handed over the letters to the eligible recipients during a ceremony on Saturday.

He said the resettlement scheme is one of the developments being made in Sarawak’s rural areas to ensure comfort for residents.

“The Sarawak government under the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg has always strived to maximise development in rural and remote areas for the benefit and the wellbeing of the people.

“The government is implementing the resettlement scheme (SPS) and village expansion scheme (SPK) projects to provide more comfortable residential lots.

“These lots are planned and equipped with various basic facilities such as road network, drainage system, water supply and electricity supply,” he said in a Facebook post on Sunday.

The Kuala Rajang assemblyman said the state government also reduced the premium rate for the lots by 50 percent under SPS and SPK, where it does not exceed RM2,500 for one lot.

“This is implemented to alleviate the burden of low-income people involved in the schemes to settle the payment of premiums,” he said.

Len said with the projects being implemented in Kampung Rejang, it will ensure convenience for the people and showed that the state government is fulfilling its promise.

“My hope is that the residents who have got their lots will immediately build their dream homes to fulfil the original purpose of preparing the SPS and SPK schemes.

“Congratulations and thank you to the Land and Survey Department for its commitment in ensuring this project is implemented,” he said.
