With the reactions mixed on having a gated-and-guarded community, Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) has set out conditions for the approval of such scheme.
Notably, a gated-and-guarded scheme will only be allowed for a community if 75 percent of the neighbourhood has agreed to such an arrangement.
“Additionally, the neighbourhood itself will have to be at least 1.21ha in size with a minimum of 100 housing units and the guardhouse can only be 1.8m by 2.4m,” said council president Abdul Hamid Abdul Hussain.
“Boom gates can only be shut from midnight to 6am and roads used by residents from other neighbourhoods cannot be blocked.”
On another note, Abdul Hamid revealed plans to spruce up the Pandan Indah Town Park.
The upgrade, however, would involve a significant amount of money considering that the public park requires a complete overhaul.
“We will send an application to the National Landscape Department for another allocation to upgrade the park,” he said. “MPAJ has not neglected smaller parks in neighbourhoods.”
In fact, the council has upgraded 200 small parks last year at a cost of RM2 million, revealed Abdul Hamid.
“We will continue to do so for the remaining parks this year,” he added.
