Bukit Gasing to continue bungalow development – The Malay Mail

KUALA LUMPUR: The long-disputed bungalow development at Bukit Gasing by Gasing Meridian Sdn Bhd overcame another legal hurdle today when the High Court here decided residents in the area don’t have any right to be heard in relation to the proposed hillside slope project.

Counsel R. Sivarasa — who represented the residents — said the judge stated the Federal Territories Planning Act 1982 applies to the development.

Therefore, the residents would not have the right to be heard on the development — unless it falls within the rules under the Town and Country Planning Act 1976, which did not apply in this case, he explained.

“For those reasons, the right to be heard only arises if there’s a change of density or use of the land, which did not arise in this case.”

The decision was delivered by Judge Datuk Aziah Ali in chambers, dismissing the judicial review application filed by the residents and the Joint-Action Committee of Bukit Gasing in an effort to seek a public hearing on the said development.
