 Its a good idea, but the example doesn’t seem right. If an area has been allocated for school, then it most likely means that place needs a school sooner or later. If you built houses there, where would the school be then? Its not only a matter of building houses at any empty land you can find. Have to  do some proper study on traffic load, transportation, etc (in short proper town planning). I hope these kind of stop-gap measures don’t end up creating more problems.

 

Land allocated by the Government but not used for the original purpose will be utilised to build affordable homes for the middle-income group.

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin also assured the people that houses built on such plots would be priced below RM300,000.

“For instance, plots of land allocated for building schools but not used for that purpose can be developed into a PR1MA projects,” he said during a gathering with Selangor non-governmental organisation youth leaders at Universiti Teknologi Mara here Thursday.

PR1MA (Perumahan Rakyat 1Malaysia) is a government programme to promote greater home ownership, especially among the middle-income earners, by providing more affordable residential properties in major cities nationwide.
