Hand over of 1,240 objections by CSKL representatives

A delegation of representatives from 8 RAs were at DBKL office in KL this morning to hand over some 1240 objections from residents who were highly concerned at Draft Kuala Lumpur City Plan. President of Coalition to Save Kuala Lumpur (CSKL), Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahman and CSKL legal advisor, Derek Fernandez both explained to the Press present to witness the handing over, some of the key objections to DKLCP.

There were 10 key generic objections, covering the illegality of DKLCP, the Public Opinion Hearing Committee, Population Density assumptions, Transportation, Environment and many other areas that were inadequately covered and explained. Objections also covered two key areas, Federal Hill and Bukit Gasing, that glaringly demonstrates in more specific manner the deeply flawed and poorly considered DKLCP.

CSKL also highlighted that many more objections had been submitted directly by RAs across KL and many more residents will be submitting more up to the closing date of 31st August.  Derek Fernandez also highlighted that it is wrong for DBKL to suggests that this Friday (29th August) would be the last day as legally when closing date falls on a weekend or public holiday, then the closing date will be the next working day. Again, this illustrates the high handed manner DBKL discharges its responsibilities to the public it claims to serve.

Please look out for press reports for more information.
