Not discouraged by the dismissal of their stay application for the proposed development in Taman Rimba Kiara, the Taman Tun Dr Ismail Residents’ Association (TTDI RA) is once again objecting the proposed change in land use of a residential site at Lorong Datuk Sulaiman 1 in TTDI, Kuala Lumpur.
A notice board located outside Tadika Diyana states that DBKL has received applications to change the land use of the site from residential to commercial for the development of two new seven-storey office buildings with basement parking.
Currently, a kindergarten is operating on the site.
In a circular to its members, the RA said the addition of a commercial building within a residential area may lead to more traffic congestion.
“The project attempts to convert a residential property into commercial. The quality of life in this residential area as we know now will deteriorate,” it said.
“That piece of property must be maintained as a residential land and we must prevent DBKL (Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur or KL City Hall) from changing the status of the land use.”
The TTDI RA revealed that it will set up a collection desk at the main gate of Tadika Diyana on 24 February (Saturday) from 9am to 4pm for residents to submit their objection letters to the change of land use and proposed office building.
Based on the notice board, the deadline for submitting written objections on the proposed development is 28 February.
TTDI RA vice-president Clinton Ang, said: “We feel that we now — more than ever — need to be vigilant and to keep up the pressure to put an end to all these developments on pockets of land that were not supposed to be developed at all in the first place!”
According to him, there are other proposed projects in TTDI, which includes a land parcel located next to the longhouse community that has been approved by DBKL to be developed by Sime Darby Property Bhd into three condominium blocks.
“We have also come to know that there has been a request to remove a Gas Malaysia storage tank along Jalan Athinahapan that serves current houses and condominiums nearby,” he said.
“That gas storage tank sits on a vacant piece of land about one acre. Sources have informed us that this risk is being developed as well — whereas that piece of land has already been designated as public open space.”
