Rehda wants Kelantan to shorten land approval period

KOTA BARU: The Kelantan Real Estate and Housing Developers Association (Rehda) has urged the state government to shorten the land approval process from six months presently.

Its chairman Sekarnor Che Omar said the government's delay in issuing land approvals had caused developers much concern as it affected construction cost.

"If the six months taken for approval can be reconsidered, then project delays will not occur and the houses can be priced lower. We are also facing market constraints as the state government has set a condition that the houses are sold only to Kelantanese."

Sekarnor said developers who had to complete their projects in two years had to cope with the rising price of building materials like cement and steel. Meanwhile, Rehda will organise a real estate exhibition at KBMall from March 12-15 to sell 1,500 completed houses. - Bernama
