The Residents’ Association of Taman Sri Nibong has organized two meetings on 6th February, 2013 and 9th March, 2013 with three lawyers viz. Mr. M.S. Rajendran from Rajen & Lim, Mr. Allen Choong & Mr. Cheng Theng Keat from Allen Associates without any fee. They have made a thorough study of the documents of the case where we organized a signature campaign against the intrusion into our Taman with proposals of:
1) opening our main roads to the Expressway to facilitate outflow of traffic
2) widening our existing roads when there is no space for such an exercise unless they remove our pavements in front of our houses.
With 351 units of middle cost apartments in the 2 blocks built by Kewira Jaya Sdn.beside the Mussolla – Block A: 19 storey with 252 units with hall & 4-storey car park; Block B:14 storey with 89 units with hall & 4-storey car park, – the residents will suffer the intensity of population, traffic chaos, parking space, environmental pollution and the influx of more people and vehicles into our Taman.
We have suggested to the developer to find a way in and out of the development plot through the kampong to the Expressway. We are not against any development for progress in any area. The convenience of the residents must be given prior consideration as we have lived here since 1987.
MPPP has rejected the developer’s plan. The Company referred the matter to the Appeal Board which held its first meeting on 14th January, 2013. At the hearing, the Chairman suggested that the Residents should engage a lawyer to look after their interest. The next meeting of the Appeal Board will be held on 19th March, 2013 at 9.00 am, Tingkat 57, KOMTAR. I hope that not only the 26 protestors but also the residents would attend to show our solidarity and unity of purpose. Don’t forget, we have to take care of our interest. Whatever the outcome, we have to fight the cause till the end.
The Residents’ Association has kick-off a Special Fund with RM5,000. Every resident should contribute with at least RM100. Those who can and able, be generous enough to contribute more. If the worse comes about, when our home ground is invaded, our property may be devalued and we shall be much inconvenienced. I appeal to all of you to join hands and fight for the worthy cause till victory is achieved.
Thank you. “Together we shall prevail”.
Hwang Hong Shi, President, TSNRA
