Kupang Pasu District Council will soon upgrade to municipality status on November 2018

Quote:
MDKP diiktiraf majlis perbandaran November ini
ROSHILA MURNI ROSLI
9 OGOS 2018

JITRA - Majlis Daerah Kubang Pasu (MDKP) bakal diiktiraf sebagai majlis perbandaran pada November nanti.

Yang Dipertua Majlis Daerah Kubang Pasu, Mohd Fisol Md Noh berkata, pengiktirafan berkenaan adalah saat yang paling dinanti-nantikan oleh MDKP termasuk penduduk-penduduk daerah ini.

Katanya, mereka mula membawa usul untuk mendapatkan status perbandaran ini sejak 2002 lagi.

"Kriteria -kriteria yang diperlukan itu, kita dah lengkap termasuk dari segi pendapatan, keluasan, dan kita juga ada institut pengajian tinggi serta kawasan yang bersempadan dengan negara Thailand," katanya ketika ditemui pada Majlis Angkat Sumpah Ahli Majlis Daerah Kubang Pasu (MDKP) bagi penggal 2018-2019,semalam.

Menurutnya, beliau mempunyai harapan yang tinggi setelah Kubang Pasu diwartakan sebagai majlis perbandaran kelak.

"Sebenarnya bila kita dah naik ke tahap perbandaran ini, status kita pun dah berubah dengan taraf berbeza dari segi perkhidmatan kepada rakyat.

"Hal ini kerana, kita mempunyai pendapatan yang mencukupi untuk pengurusan dan pembangunan.

"Oleh itu, di pihak pentadbiran juga kita perlu meningkatkan perkhidmatan agar sesuai dengan taraf perbandaran yang diterima," katanya.

Mohd Fisol berkata, pencapaian taraf perbandaran ini adalah usaha daripada semua pihak bermula daripada rakyat, wakil-wakil rakyat, agensi-agensi, termasuk badan- badan korporat yang memajukan daerah ini dari segi pertambahan dan pembangunan infrastruktur.

"Jasa pihak swasta juga kita tak boleh nafikan kerana mereka inilah yang memainkan peranan penting.

"Kita di jabatan kerajaan ini hanya bertindak sebagai penyedia peraturan bagi memudahkan cara sahaja.

"Jadi, saya di sini merakamkan ucapan terima kasih dan penghargaan buat semua yang terlibat dalam membantu daerah ini mencapai taraf majlis perbandaran," katanya.

Pada tahun 1976, Kubang pasu dinaiktaraf sebagai majlis daerah di bawah Akta Kerajaan Tempatan.

Sebagai sebuah daerah yang besar di negeri Kedah, Kubang Pasu mempunyai kepadatan penduduk melebihi 250,000 dengan jumlah pendapatan kira-kira RM22 juta setahun.

Wonder the name would retain Kupang Pasu (Majlis Perbandaran Kupang Pasu/Kupang Pasu Municipal Council) or change it to Jitra (Majlis Perbandaran Jitra/Jitra Municipal Council).

Thought this thread was talking about local government.

Still we don't know how many local government are waiting in line for KPKT to upgrade status. Hoping minister Zuraida & co can reveal in future time since there's many local government like Seberang Perai, and most municipal/district council in Selangor are eager to upgrade to higher status.

On a serious note. I felt like local Council should be at least a 1000sq km or a million people for economics of scale

http://epublisiti.townplan.gov.my/tu...035/jilid3.pdf

Both have listed clearly the latest criteria (I guess) upgrading city status.

Quote:
1) PBT harus meliputi kawasan pusat pentadbiran sesebuah negeri.

2) Mempunyai penduduk melebihi 500,000 orang.

3) Mempunyai pendapatan dari sumber kewangan yang mampan (fiscally sustainable) dengan hasil tahunan tidak kurang dari RM100 juta serta mampu mengimbangkan perbelanjaan.

4) Berupaya menyediakan perkhidmatanperkhidmatan pada tahap yang tinggi termasuklah aktiviti kutipan hasil, kelulusan pemajuan pembangunan, penguatkuasaan dan lain-lain fungsi PBT serta mempunyai struktur organisasi yang mantap serta kakitangan yang berkebolehan menjalankan tugas dengan cekap dan berkesan.

5) Pembangunan bandar yang menekankan kepada pembangunan mampan (sustainable development) serta memberi tumpuan kepada usaha untuk menangani isu-isu perbandaran seperti setinggan, operasi kilang haram, keselamatan, perumahan untuk golongan berpendapatan rendah dan pemeliharaan alam sekitar. Indikator bandar mampan seperti yang ditekankan dalam Sistem Malaysia Urban Indicator Network (MURNInets) juga akan diambilkira.

6) Pembentukan imej bandar ataupun identiti yang bersesuaian dengan fungsi bandar dan budaya nasional yang melambangkan sejarah dan warisan. Kawasan-kawasan dan bangunan-bangunan yang mempunyai nilai sejarah, budaya dan senibina yang unik serta perlu dipelihara.

7) Mempunyai pusat perindustrian, institusi kewangan dan kemudahan menjalankan perniagaan dan perdagangan bagi menarik kemasukan pelabur. Ini termasuklah kemudahan-kemudahan perhotelan bagi menggalakkan kegiatan pelancongan dan urusan perniagaan. Tumpuan diberikan kepada kesatan sektor perkhidmatan serta pembangunan aktiviti ekonomi bandar yang bernilai tambah dan berorientasikan pengetahuan.

8) Mempunyai pusat institusi pendidikan yang lengkap dengan universiti, kolej, maktab, muzium dan perpustakaan awam.

9) Pusat kepada aktiviti kebudayaan, acara-acara sukan dan riadah serta konvensyen di peringkat kebangsaan dan antarabangasa.

10) Mempunyai kemudahan infrastruktur yang lengkap, utiliti awam yang mencukupi termasuklah taman-taman awam yang mesra pengguna terutamanya kepada Orang Kelainan Upaya (OKU). Ini termasuklah kemudahan-kemudahan pengangkutan awam, sistem pengurusan lalulintas dan rangkaian jalan raya yang cekap serta perkhidmatan ICT.

11) Mendapat pengiktirafan tertentu sama ada di peringkat kebangsaan ataupun antarabangsa dalam bidangbidang tertentu sejajar dengan taraf sebagai sebuah bandar raya.
From the report itself, Klang achieve all criteria except 8 (no tertiary education institution) and 9 (I assume not enough stadium, auditorium/convention centre and recreational parks for cultural activities and events since the comments was so vague) while Sungai Petani only fully achieved 2/7/8 while the rest are partially achieved.

So it's obviously a very long way for SP to go city status which I don't think it would get it by 2022 targeted by MPSPK itself and maybe even same thing happen for Klang as well.

Latest news from MPSP upgrade status. So that might leaves Klang or Kajang or even Subang Jaya as largest municipality if MPSP succeed.

https://www.thesundaily.my/local/seb...-year-BN843175

Quote:
GEORGE TOWN: The Seberang Prai Municipal Council (MPSP), which oversees the country’s largest municipality, is likely to be elevated to city status later this year.

State exco Jagdeep Singh Deo, who is in charge of local government, said that the submission made last year has fulfilled most of the required criteria.

“We expect a working paper on it to be tabled to the cabinet for approval and it is expected soon,” he said at the side lines of the state legislative assembly sitting.

It meant that MPSP stands to gain more federal allocation from it and the present MPSP president position would be upgraded to a mayor status.
https://www.malaymail.com/news/malay...e-exco/1749511

Quote:
In another development, Jagdeep said the state government’s application to upgrade the Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP) to city council may be tabled before the Cabinet this month.

He said the application had been submitted to Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraidah Kamaruddin, who said MPSP had met the criteria for upgrading to city status.

“I was told it may be tabled in the Cabinet this month. If all requirements have been met, as the minister said, then we will see a new mayor,” he said.

Jagdeep also congratulated the Penang Island Municipal Council and MPSP for maintaining their five-star ratings with marks of 95.8 per cent and 95.9 per cent respectively.

Subang Jaya already apply now on state government review phase IIRC (and that's long way to go with KPKT approval/consent and lastly cabinet hearing), and Klang need university to fulfill city council criteria. Not sure about Kajang tho.

Have you seen their recent amendment of 2035 MPK local development draft plan? They have stated how much criteria they have fulfilled. According to the report, they didn't fulfilled the requirement on education institution ("Mempunyai pusat institusi pendidikan yang lengkap
dengan universiti, kolej, maktab, muzium dan
perpustakaan awam.") and another one I don't really understand. ("Pusat kepada aktiviti kebudayaan, acara-acara sukan
dan riadah konvensyen di peringkat kebangsaan dan
antarabangsa.")

A few week news but related to the progress of Subang Jaya getting city status. (And the article also mentioned Kuala Selangor and Kuala Langat biding for municipality status but not really relevant on this thread)

https://www.thestar.com.my/metro/met...city-services/

Quote:
AFTER a five-year wait, Subang Jaya is one step closer to becoming a city. This follows the green light from the Selangor government for the municipality to be upgraded to a city council.

“We have approved Subang Jaya Municipal Council’s (MPSJ) application to become a city and we are now waiting for the Federal Government’s approval.

Once approved, MPSJ will be upgraded to Subang Jaya City Council,” said state local government, public transport and new village development committee chairman Ng Sze Han.

Covering 16,180ha, MPSJ’s administration covers Subang Jaya, Bandar Sunway, Putra Heights, Seri Kembangan, Seri Serdang, Puchong as well as parts of Balakong and Batu Tiga.

According to the Statistics Department, the population within its jurisdiction was 798,830 as of 2015.

In 1997, Subang Jaya was carved out from the then Petaling Jaya District Council and upgraded to become a municipality.

Ever since then, the urban township has grown by leaps and bounds and has been working towards becoming a city. It first applied for city status in 2014.

Currently, there are two other city councils in the state — Petaling Jaya City Council, which achieved the status in 2006, and Shah Alam City Council in 2010.

“Apart from MPSJ, the state has also approved for Kuala Langat District Council (MDKL) to be upgraded to a municipality and we are now also awaiting the Federal Government’s approval,” said Ng.

He was speaking to reporters at an appreciation ceremony for local authorities in the state that achieved five stars for their performance last year. The event was held at the Selangor state secretariat in Shah Alam.

Ng said Kuala Selangor District Council (MDKS) had also submitted an application to be upgraded but it was not approved yet due to some improvements that still needed to be made.

“We set very high standards for this and MDKS actually met the basic requirements but we want to see more, such as the financial status, for example, is not good enough yet,” he said before urging it to resubmit the application next year.
Hopefully Subang Jaya can get it before the government start conduct 2020 Census survey next year so the census report can mentioned the PBT as Majlis Bandaraya Subang Jaya (MBSJ)

Klang doesn't have well known tertiary institution at the moment and it's one of the key requirement for a local authority to bid for city status and MPKlang even acknowledged the lack of tertiary institution on their local plan draft report so even if they go for apply city status it would get stalled on getting approval on state level let alone federal level (KPKT + cabinet).

So for now we have 3 municipalities area that are on its way to become city status.
1) Seberang Perai - State and federal approved, expected to be officially announced as MBSP soon (16 Septemer???).
2) Seremban(+Nilai) - Expected to become MBSeremban on YDPB-NS day (14 January 2020).
3) Subang Jaya - State approved, and now getting approval on federal level.

Maybe that's why Kota Bharu (Kelantan) still can't get city status as they don't have any well-known tertiary institution within their jurisdiction ???



ps it seems that all the well-known tertiary institution are located outside of Kota Bharu meh hehehe !!!

So in Malaysia, we have cities that emerged from it's district and standing out to be prominent while some need to cooperate and combining to other adjacent district to qualify and gain the city status criteria

District with multiple cities
1. Petaling District - MBPJ, MBSA, MBSJ
2. Johor Bahru District - MBJB, MBIP
3. Kuching District - DBKU, MBKS

City with multiple districts
1. MBPP - Timur Laut District + Barat Daya District
2. MBSP - SP Utara District + SP Tengah District + SP Selatan District
3. MBKT - KT District + Kuala Nerus District

By default, all capital state must be conferred and granted the city status. To think that Kangar wont ever get the status because even the whole state included still couldn't meet the criteria
