PUTRAJAYA: Kuala Lumpur City Hall and a developer today failed to prevent 108 Bukit Gasing residents from challenging a development order by the Kuala Lumpur mayor pertaining to a hillslope development project in the area.

Court of Appeal Judge Datuk Paduka Zaleha Zahari and Datuk Mohd Hishamudin Mohd Yunus dismissed KL City Hall’s appeal in a 2-1 majority decision, with Justice K. N. Segara dissenting.

In an oral decision, Justice Zaleha said after going through the submissions of both parties, the applicant’s appeal was dismissed.

KL City Hall and the developer, Gasing Meridian Sdn Bhd (GMSB), are appealing against the High Court decision on April 24, in granting leave for a judicial review to the residents to quash the mayor’s order.

GMSB is the developer involved in the development of Sanctuary Ridge Kuala Lumpur City — a project to build 68 bungalows on a 15.5ha site in Bukit Gasing. – Bernama
