History

 


Subang Jaya was originally a township of Petaling Jaya. However, due to the high population and rapid developments, it has earned its own municipality, the Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya. The city was developed by Sime UEP Berhad, the property development arm of the Malaysian conglomerate Sime Darby. The site was formerly a rubber plantation called Seafield Estate under the municipality of Majlis Perbandaran Petaling Jaya. Construction work for the development of Subang Jaya began in 1974 and was concluded in 1988. Upon completion of Subang Jaya in the same year, Sime UEP began clearing land for the development of USJ. In 1999, Sime UEP began the development of Putra Heights.

In 1997, Subang Jaya was granted the status of a municipality. Hence, the local authority was transferred from the Majlis Perbandaran Petaling Jaya (MPPJ) (Petaling Jaya Municipal Council) to Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ) (Subang Jaya Municipal Council). The MPSJ holds local government authority not only in Subang Jaya, but also USJ, Putra Heights,Batu Tiga, Bandar Sunway, Puchong, Bandar Kinrara, Seri Kembangan, Balakong, and other parts of Petaling district.
