Residents want to be heard

ANOTHER residential development is something the already densely populated Section 10 Wangsa Maju area does not need and residents will be attending a meeting that will be held at Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) soon to voice out their objections to such a project that will see the secondary jungle next to their homes cleared.

The fairly large area is one of the few remaining green spots around.

“Previously, before one of the later condominium project was built here, there was a peak that many residents could easily hike up. Many used to have picnics up there.

“I remember climbing up numerous times for the best seats to watch fireworks,” said green building consultant Sheena Moses, 24.

She moved in with her family about 15 years ago and had watched the peak cleared for another condominium.

However, the rest of the forest remains untouched and some still venture out for a hike at times and all enjoy the benefits of having one of the last green lungs in the area so close to home.

Currently, residents living in the immediate vicinity of the forest are from the Section 10 Wangsa Maju low-cost flats as well as Sri Ledang, Sri Kinabalu, Sri Jelatek, Sri Lojing and Desa Villas condominiums.

The project that residents are protesting against involves the construction of three 26-storey apartment blocks consisting of 721 units with a five-storey carpark podium….More

PETITION: Save The Forest of Wangsa Maju Section 10!!

We do not need to increase the density of this area. Please stop this development and move to brownfields or other existing sites available for development.
