MPSJ Hotline - 03-56376545

Residents are encourage to call up MPSJ Hotline to make complaints. MPSJ will ask for your particulars and they will send you an acknowledgement of your complaint. You can then follow up with them if no action is being taken. MPSJ will also send you a reply if actions had been taken.


Our Bandar Puteri 11 residents main concern is with the dangerous car parking situation on the road, Jalan Puteri 11/1, outside the Puteri Bayu Apartment. Cars are parked on both sides of the slope road making it very narrow for other vehicles to pass through. The road is also winding with certain section being a danger blind spot.


Many complaints have been made to MPSJ on this parking issue in the past one year. MPSJ then issued illegal parking summons to these traffic offenders but the problem remain unresolved. MPSJ recently told us that they will study the problem again but we want them to act fast before accidents happened.


We encourage our residents to call up the MPSJ Hotline 03-56376545 to complain about this dangerous parking situation. The more complaints they received, the faster they will have to respond.

Conman Gardener

Please be warned of this thirty something year old guy by the name of Segar who rides a motorbike offering to plant grass and trees in your house.

He will offer to plant good quality carpet grass for you first and you only have to pay him after the job is done.

After you have paid him for the grass he will ask if you want to buy some Christmas trees. He will now collect the money from you first and disappear.

You will discover after some weeks that the grass you get is not the type of quality carpet grass he claimed to sell you.

Nst: Horseback patrol to curb crime

http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/2horses/Article/

Supt Abdul Razak Elyas

Residents feel safer with mounted police on patrol around Bandar Puteri Puchong. (Inset) Supt Abdul Razak Elyas says the umbrella concept has helped reduce crime.

PUCHONG: In a bid to reduce crime in Bandar Puteri Puchong, mounted police have been deployed in the area.
This move is to strengthen the police presence here, and follows the recently launched "umbrella" concept, whereby police personnel are placed under parasols in main areas of the township.

Residents and visitors here would have come across the policemen on horses doing their rounds in the neighbourhood over the past week.


Their presence, until the end of the month, said IPD Serdang OCPD, Supt Abdul Razak Elyas, would serve as a deterrent in the area marked as a hot spot for crime.


"The mounted police will be here for some time as I believe a longer time spent here can help bring the crime rate down," he said when met at a morning taichi session, organised by the residents association of Bandar Puteri 12.

Although, only four horses go on their rounds here between 11am to 3pm, Razak said up to nine horses could be deployed at any time as and when there was a need.


"It will all depend on the crime pattern of the day.

"If we see a rise in crime reports, all nine horses will go on their rounds," said Razak adding that the police have also deployed helicopters in the area.

"Our helicopter unit is our Eye in the Sky and its presence, too, helps to monitor the situation here," he added.


He also said that the use of mounted police was also part of the community policing strategy, which complements the conventional policing where policemen carry out their patrols on cars or motorcycles.

"This community policing also helps build rapport with the people. You see residents walking up to these policemen and their horses. It's also a good opportunity to get the younger generation, especially the children, to approach the police," he said, pointing to a group of excited children who had gathered around the horses. He also encouraged residents in the area to approach the mounted policemen should they have any information on criminal activities here.

Elaborating on the umbrella concept, Razak said, the police personnel who include those patrolling in cars and motorcycles, as well as plainclothes policemen, detectives and narcotics officers, use the parasol as their converging point.

Five of such "umbrella" police bases have been set-up in Bandar Puteri Puchong.

"Three policemen -- one who is stationed under the parasol and two on foot patrol -- work in shifts between 8am to 8pm everyday. I'm happy to say that since its launch, no snatch thefts have been reported," said Razak.

He also said the police was aware of the theory of displacement in which criminal activities move elsewhere when prevention measures are put into place.

"Whether geographical or temporal (change in time for criminal activities) we can also change our surveillance locations and time," he said, adding that the police would not hesitate to go where criminal activities are rampant.

The cases reported in the area include snatch thefts, vehicle break-ins and car thefts.

The Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) has also erected guard rails measuring up to 1.5m along the busy main roads in Bandar Puteri commercial areas, similar to the guard rails used in SS15, Subang Jaya, to deter snatch thefts. According to Bandar Puteri 12 Residents Association (RA12) chairman, Betty Yap, the tai-chi session with Razak and his men was held to foster closer ties between the residents and the police.

"The session has allowed for interaction between the residents and the police as issues were discussed and views exchanged," she said.

She also urged the police to look into the menace caused by youngsters along the road leading up to Bandar Puteri 12, which is often used as a spot to hang out to view part of Puchong's and Subang Jaya's skyline at night from the neighbourhood on the hill.

A resident, Khairunnisa Abdul Latep, 33, who almost became a victim of car hijacking in the area recently said she preferred approaching the mounted police or the personnel under the parasols as she had always felt intimidated going to police stations.

She urged everyone to report crime even if it was a near miss, and not only report a crime after it's over as it could save others.

A resident, Sagar Velayuthan, 49, said the presence of the mounted police in the area was much welcomed.

"These mounted policemen come across as more approachable.

"As we take our kids to see the horses, we can also inform the policemen of any suspicious persons or activities that we think should be looked into," he said.

He hoped that the police would carry out more activities such as dialogue sessions with the residents for the benefit of both parties.

Engagement Of Security Guards

Our current RA Committee will retire at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting scheduled to be held on 23 January 2011. The Notice of Annual General Meeting will be issued to our members 14 days prior to the date of the Annual General Meeting. Our members at the Annual General Meeting will then elect a new RA Committee for 2011.

IOI will be terminating their security guards services at Puteri 11 on the 15 January 2011. In view of the above timing situation, our current RA Committee have decided that we will only engage our security guards on a one month probation contract basis commencing on 16 January 2011 and ending on 15 February 2011.

The newly elected RA Committee can then decide if they wish to continue with the current security guards or otherwise. We think that this arrangement is only fair to the newly elected RA Committee.

The security company we will engage, Z Force Security Services & Systems Sdn. Bhd., is agreeable to the one month probation contract. This company is also the one recommended by Mr Khoo, who was previously with our security sub-committee.

The pay rate is RM 3.80 per hour. With 5 guards in the day and another 5 at night working on 24 hour basis, this will amount to about RM 15,000.00 per month inclusive of service tax. The Extraordinary General Meeting held on 30 October 2010 had already approved the payment for this amount each month.

Missing comments from Xiao Hui

This morning Xiao Hui sent in a comment at around 2:40am at "No more anonymous comments". But the comment went missing soon after.

We do not know why the comment is missing. We did not delete it. We hope anyone with IT / webmaster knowledge can help us.

We are now re-posting the whole comment again here.

Xiao Hui has left a new comment on your post "No more anonymous comments":

I will be staying at Puteri 11 with my parents. This is my fist time posting in this blog. I decided to post after speaking to Mr. Loke yesterday. It pertaining to the issue of the cheques that I read from here. However, I am not very please with his response as the treasurer of RA. I enquire about the separate cheques payment and he told me he did not know anything about it. He asked me to check with the auditors!!! When pressed more he asked me to check with Mr. Chiam personally!!! I just do not understand. As the treasurer, if you don’t know, who knows? Since when the auditors issue cheques or are they authorize to do so? As paying resident, I just want to know so I can share with my neighbors. They’re asking what’s happening with the security. Mind you, I was the one that convinced them and also my parent in the first place to contribute to engage the security for the benefits of our Taman. I feel I have the responsibility to share info with the aunties and uncles.

When I enquire about the status of our account, his response”…… you expect me to do accounts EVERYDAY?”. Mr. Loke, I NEVER EXPECT YOU TO DO IT EVERYDAY!! Do you think you need to do that? We don’t sell things, we do not have daily transaction. Which accounting person will need to do so?? All I am asking is the status of the account, meaning the updated ones.. i.e. total collection of membership fees (RM15) and monthly collection (either 3 months or 1 month) till today minus off the expenses incur from the moment you started to collect OUR MONEY. THAT’S IT. Is it that difficult to do so? Then he asked me why I never attend the meeting last Sunday. Now this is the problem with communication between the RA and residents. There’s no notice sent to resident, no one inform us. It was only posted in the blog. So, you’re assuming every resident can read and have access to the blog? Or they can read your RA’s mind what’s your next action?

A lot has been going on in this blog. I cant say who is telling the truth. But my post here with the response I quoted all took place yesterday and I never twisted any of the FACTS. I do not mind sharing this with all residents. We have our rights.

UNBELIEVEABLE U GUYS!!!

Posted by Xiao Hui to Puchong Puteri 11 at December 23, 2010 2:40 AM

Dear Xiao Hui,

I have informed Mr Loke about your posting on our blogspot.

Meanwhile, allow me to explain the two separate cheques issued to the supplier. I assigned Mr Khoo, who was with our security sub-committee, to source for gate tags and car stickers. I did not tell him to get the quotation approved first before placing the order. I later found out that the car sticker price is high. I requested Mr Khoo to negotiate with the supplier which he did and got a small discount. I take full responsibility for the mistake and decided that I shall issue my personal cheque to the supplier for the amount that I found still overcharged which is about RM 720.00.

The November 2010 accounts are already posted on the website. Please look for it. I agree that our existing communication channel is weak and need a lot more improvements.

Please contact me should you want further clarifications.

Comments From Chairman

The current RA Committee will retire at the forthcoming AGM. Our members at the AGM will elect a new RA Committee for 2011.

There is a misconception by some members who think that the current RA Committee are interested to serve for another year.

I know that the current RA Committee are prepared to resign voluntarily at anytime. But there must already be a new team endorsed by the members ready to take over.

We had learned from the bitter experience of Puteri 12. When their RA Committee voluntarily resigned there was nobody willing to come forward.

The current RA Committee is doing their final lap of duties and we just want to complete it and hand over to the next RA Committee.

I will not be standing for re-election at the forthcoming AGM. I think it is a good practice that the Chairman's post be rotated every year.

My intention had been made known to our current RA Committee sometime ago.

Missing comment

This blog do not delete user comments. We do not know why the comments are missing. As explained before, the problem is most likely due to server or technical errors at the blogspot server. If you are IT expert, please help us.

If you are still not satisfied, I will handover the website password and administration to whomever who can volunteer to maintain the website. Just contact the RA and volunteer yourself.

To satisfy the accuser, here is the re-post of the whole comment again (this time it won't go missing) :

WITHOUT PREJUDICES

  1. How can you be so sure it is this PC Ng that has made the criticism against the old committee members?
  2. Can you justify your certainty that this PC Ng has ganged up with some residents to go against the old committee members? Any proof to back up?
  3. How do you come to know that this PC Ng was bullying the chairman and tried to grab the so-called POWER from the existing RA? What is his purpose of doing so? If, it is true DO YOU AND CAN YOU PROVIDE THE EVIDENCE PLEASE.
  4. Maybe I am wrong, by the way you expressed your views and your emotions, and I felt that you should be one of a committee member in the existing RA? If Yes, may I asked you to ask yourself conscientiously IE. “HAVE YOU REALLY CONTRIBUTED DEDICATELY, OPENLY, TRULY BEFORE AND AFTER THE PROTEST OF THE CONDO?” (This is without prejudices ok)
  5. Do you really think THE POWER of the RA is so important, so great until PC Ng wanted to grab it? You really make it so POLITICAL.
  6. I went back to all the comments (criticisms) but I find nobody said that old committee members are UNCONCERNED. What was pointed out was that the committee members have been inactive. Don’t you think you have exaggerated a bit?
  7. You are absolutely right and I do agreed with you of the old RA contributions in the protest of the condo, BUT, wasn’t that strong drive and determination of yours are based literally on “SELF INTEREST” only and RA was not formed initially is to serve the whole of Puteri 11 community?
  8. What made you think that PC Ng and his so called GANG will KACHAU, FORCING RESIDENTS TO PAY THEIR SECURITY FEES OR EVEN WILL HARRASS AND BULLY RESIDENTS TO JOIN HIS ACTIVITIES? Don’t you think you’ve made us feel like we are all Brainless Puppet here and how weak are we!
  9. Where was PC Ng when you were busy for the condo issue? I can’t answer you as I cannot speak for him because I don’t know? BUT I THINK I SAW HIM IN THE PICTURE TAKEN WITH GOBIN SINGH IN THE BLOG BEFORE. Gobin Singh was here to check the problems of having the condo, if I am not wrong about this.
  10. Also to what I also remembered was RA INVITED ONLY THE RESIDENTS OF ALL CORNER UNIT (NAIDA 2 AND OLIVIA) ON THE DAY OUR RA AND IOI TO PRESENT THE REPORT TO MPSJ. Did any other residents in Puteri 11 was invited or informed of this? I was not!!!!
  11. To me, I think PC Ng is quite a fine chap, considerably hardworking and seem to be quite dedicated too. He volunteered himself as a Road Rep. to collect the security fees for both Puteri 11/16 and 11/17, at the 1st EGM we have had. From what I heard, Mahendra who is a Secretary, does volunteered for the same task but has hardly collected from nobody on his street except from Himself…Even some of the 11/11 residents whispered behind his back.

    SO how can you deemed this PC Ng a nuisance?
  12. Why PC Ng is hurrying for the re-election? Ng, I think you should voice up your intention and be heard and viewed by residents, don’t you think so?
  13. Least but not last, you seem to be very persistent and certain that the SO CALLED GANG is such malicious, dangerous and sadistic, WHY are you so sure about them? Do you know them too? So who are they?

Request For Early Annual General Meeting

Dear Fellow Members of our RA.

There is a request from a group of our members to hold our next RA's Annual General Meeting (AGM) in December 2010 or in the first week of January 2011.

Under our Association's Rules and Regulations, our RA must send out the Notice of AGM to our members 14 days in advance of the date of the AGM.

The Notice must also be accompanied with the 2010 audited accounts. Our financial year is from 1st January to 31st December.

RA will request the bank statement for our bank account with Public Bank earliest on Monday, 3 January 2011.

Our auditor will have to audit our cash book figures against the figures shown in the December month bank statement.

Due to the above reasons, the earliest possible date to hold our next AGM will be Sunday 23 January 2011.

The Notice of AGM must then be sent out not later than 9 January 2011 to meet the 14 day period requirement.

Our AGM will be invalid if we do not follow the above regulations.

A copy of the Association's Rules and Regulations can be obtained from me or our Hon. Secretary, Mr Mahendra - h/p no. 012-2029668.

I trust the above explanations is clear and should there be any question, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Comments from RA

Our blog has been quite busy these past few days. I hope this is a positive sign that more of our members are concern about our RA and our community.

Our RA welcome your criticisms, comments and suggestions and we will try to reply to all as soon as possible. There is a lesson to learn from everyone.

Every of our members will have a view on an issue and it is fine and only natural if we do disagree. RA shall act according to the wishes of the majority.

Lets not get too personal and emotional that we create ill feelings with one another. Everyone here want to live together in harmony as good neighbours.

I also think that it is good, we put our names and contact telephone numbers here, so we can get in touch to know and understand each other better.

Problems often started because of miscommunication and misunderstandings and this is rather unfortunate and unnecessary.

Lets be friendly and stay united as one happy community in our Bandar Puteri 11.

Wishing all our members a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Audited accounts at forthcoming AGM

Dear Augustin,

Thanks for your keen interest in our RA. I hope you will come on board the RA Committee at our 2nd AGM to be held early next year. I also look forward to seeing some new faces joining you in the Committee to bring in some fresh oomph.

Frankly, I don't think my leadership matters that much. More importantly is the support and encouragement from the residents that will determine the success of the RA. It is also the hard working volunteers such as Alice who came forward to sacrifice their personal time and energy for the benefits of our community that really matters.

On the question of accounts, the RA do not publish monthly accounts for the members unless it is absolutely necessary to do so. We shall be tabling the audited accounts of the RA at the forthcoming AGM. Perhaps then you may propose how timely the members wish to view the accounts.

Since we are now collecting a substantial sum of money this month, I will be presenting a special report on our year-to-date collections and expenses at the end of the month. The report will be posted on our website for members to view.

Should you still wish to seek some sort of documentation and transparency beyond a reasonable doubt, I think it is only appropriate that you disclose your name and house address as stated in the membership form for our reference.

I hope we can communicate on a face to face basis. I do not feel comfortable talking to strangers on such a matter. I am a very approachable person and is easy to get along. Please feel free to contact me at anytime.

Have a nice day.

Please be warned that anyone caught 'breeding' aedes mosquitoes in the house and the compound will be fined a minimum of RM 500.00 per offence.

MPSJ is conducting regular inspection in Bandar Puteri and throughout Puchong because there were a number of dengue fever cases reported recently.

Do a thorough check of the areas where there are stagnant water which are potentially breeding grounds for aedes mosquitoes.

theStar: New highway links Puchong to Tropicana

http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2010/11/9/central/7374211&sec=central

A new proposed highway linking Kinrara in Puchong to the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) will be cutting across Petaling Jaya near Tropicana.

The new link, which is off the Kesas Highway cuts through Section 4, Section 8, Jalan Timur, Jalan Semangat, Rothmans roundabout, Damansara Intan and Damansara Kim.

The toll highway, expected to start construction soon, also goes along the Sprint Highway all the way to the NKVE near Tropicana area.


Traffic planning consultant Goh Bok Yen said the new link would help alleviate the traffic problems in Petaling Jaya.

“Petaling Jaya badly needs roads that provide good access. It basically requires dispersal link to access the highways for ingress and digress,” he said.

Goh cited as an example the NKVE which, he said, cut on the west side to Kota Damansara, Ara Damansara and Tropicana.

A few links that are mainly used are Persiaran Surian, the FAS tunnel and Tropicana.

For the entire Kota Damansara, Damansara Perdana and Mutiara Damansara, he said logically there should be another route to allow traffic out of Persiaran Surian.

theStar: Barriers not necessary

http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2010/10/29/central/7301521&sec=central 

The recently released Gated Community and Guarded Neighbourhood Guidelines has raised some doubts among residents prompting the minister in-charge Datuk Wira Chor Chee Heung to clear the air. 


Q: Under what law are the guidelines provided for?
A: The preparation of the planning guidelines are in line with Section 2B (1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1976 (Act 172), which requires the Town and Country Planning director-general to formulate and advise the government on matters concerning town and country planning and the use and development of lands in Peninsular Malaysia.
For the guidelines on guarded neighbourhood, no specific law governs its operation. Furthermore, local councils have no authority to approve the application in setting up the schemes, which had taken form in an ad hoc manner.

Q: Would the local councils be held liable should any untoward incidents happen as a result of the gated community and guarded neighbourhood schemes?
A: Considering the erecting of structures is under the purview and responsibility of the gated communities and residents associations, and these actions are voluntary, the local councils cannot be legally blamed for any untoward incidents in both gated communities and guarded neighbourhoods.

Q: Some feel that the guidelines are inconsistent with the existing laws (Street, Drainage and Building Act 1974 and Road Transport Act 1987) as clauses in these acts prohibit any form of restriction of access on roads, while the guidelines for guarded neighbourhood allow temporary obstacles, such as cones, security signboards and manual boom gates, as long as the locations are stationed by a guard.
A: The issue has been debated at length by Cabinet and NCLG members, and the decision to allow temporary obstacles was made after considering opinions and suggestions from stakeholders including local councils, residents associations and the police.
The temporary barrier shall only be allowed if there is a 24-hour security guard to control the temporary, non-stationary and non-dangerous obstacles. This does not contradict with the Road Transport Act 1987, which prohibits dangerous obstacles. Furthermore, the guidelines also state that a temporary obstacle can only be considered by the local authority on a case-by-case basis. If other residents disagree, the local authority may decline the installation of such obstacles.

Q: The guidelines imply that every entry-exit point must have at least a guard (as no permanent obstacle is allowed) but housing estates in the Klang Valley tend to have many entry-exit points. It would be impractical to place a guard at every location.
A: Firstly, the NCLG has made a decision that these guidelines are only applicable to new guarded neighbourhood schemes, and not the existing schemes which are often unplanned and thus not suitable for operation as a guarded neighbourhood.
Secondly, the clause about temporary physical obstacle is only an option, and not a condition. The residents associations can opt to operate the guarded neighbourhood through patrolling and other surveillance method without having to station guards at every entry-exit point.

Q: If the guards have no authority to deny anyone from entering the neighbourhood, how will the guarded neighbourhood scheme be effective at all?
A: This aspect has also been debated at length at the ministry level as well as the Home Affairs Ministry and the police. Residents operating the guarded neighbourhood schemes should be aware that only the police and other legally designated personnel have the authority to stop, seek identification cards or investigate people. Security guards employed by residents have no power to seek identification or stop anyone from entering.
Moreover, from the perspective of land ownership, the guarded neighbourhood scheme is just a normal housing scheme with individual land titles, unlike gated community which is planned as a private property.
Even without stopping or seeking identification, the guards can be proactive by familiarising themselves with local residents and the inventory of residents’ vehicles so that potential intruders can be recognised and monitored. The guarded neighbourhood is just a loose concept to deter criminal activities. After all, guarded neighbourhoods are an “afterthought” ad hoc action, unlike gated communities.

Q: Does majority mean 51%? Wouldn’t that be too small a difference?
A: Mathematically, majority means 51%. In politics, two-thirds majority is often used. The spirit of this prescription is that it should be both fair and realistic.
Selangor has imposed an 80% consent requirement and initially in March, the ministry had proposed a 100% consent requirement before operating the guarded neighbourhood. Following this, the ministry has received many responses and complaints from the public and media saying that this regulation is not logical because it is difficult to get 100% agreement from the residents. There is no law that prohibits a house owner, or a group of house owners, from appointing security guards to oversee their houses. With public welfare and public rights in mind, the guidelines have clearly stated the condition that the majority rule would only apply with undue force or pressure on those residents who do not wish to pay for security services. In other words, those who do not wish to be part of the scheme are not obliged to pay for the expenses.


Q: Some commented that the need to apply for Temporary Occupation Licence (TOL) for permanent structures on the road shoulder makes it difficult for those who genuinely need the guarded neighbourhood scheme.
A: The ministry has no intention to cause unnecessary difficulties to the guarded neighbourhood operation but its objective is to ensure that the guardhouses erected by the residents associations are legal and in accordance with the provision of National Land Code 1965.
This is also to avoid the guardhouses from being demolished by the land office, which has the legal right to demolish buildings which are not in line with the National Land Code.

Q: The guidelines forbid the guarded neighbourhood scheme to be implemented in areas with public facilities but almost every neighbourhood in Subang Jaya and Petaling Jaya has common facilities.
A: As explained, the NCLG has decided that the guidelines approved is only applicable to new guarded neighbourhood schemes. It is not the intention of the guidelines that all neighbourhoods be implemented with the scheme.
Only neighbourhoods that are planned to be mutually exclusive and have communal facilities like those of gated community are practical because they should not have public facilities in their premises. It should also be noted that the majority of the housing schemes outside the Klang Valley do not have boom gates and guardhouses, but only security patrolling in and around the housing schemes. The public are free to use such roads and public facilities.

Q: The attached FAQ states that “legalisation process would not be done immediately and hastily”, so the councils are supposed to let the illegal ones go?
A: What this means is that the illegal erection and installation of guard posts, perimeter fencing, boom gates and oil drums, in existing guarded neighbourhoods shall be dealt with in phases and using case-by-case basis with priority on areas that compromise critical public services like ambulance and fire brigades.
Focus areas also include guarded neighbourhoods that install boom gates, oil drums or other obstruction on public roads, or any other public access that is used by other neighbourhoods and by doing so, cause difficulty and instigate the disturbance of public peace.
Q: Some feel that the guidelines were drawn without consulting the people on the ground, hence some impractical clauses.
A: The fact is that the guidelines have been drawn up in consultation with people on the ground. The study group from the ministry has made extensive consultation with various stakeholders discussing the issues on guarded neighbourhood and gated community.
Within the two-year period that this guideline was developed, consultation with more than 50 groups of stakeholders were made, including Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association Malaysia, developers, police, academicians, residents associations and the public. Seminars and focus group discussions have also been arranged for and analysed as input to the guidelines. The ministry has also conducted a special study to obtain responses from the public, involving 450 respondents in several local authority areas in the Klang Valley and Penang in formulating the guidelines.

Q: The Guarded Neighbourhood Guidelines forbid the residents to fence up their neighbourhoods but some felt that the fence is an essential part of the scheme to prevent strangers from entering and exiting the neighbourhoods freely.
A: Roads and backlanes in housing schemes are public roads and are accessible to the public. It was because of the change in circumstances pertaining to the security problem, the ministry decided to do something helpful by introducing the guidelines. In the context of liveable and social integrative communities, housing schemes with perimeter fencing or walls that promote social exclusion would not support integrative approaches towards a common cohesive society.
Moreover, fences and walls are aesthetically unpleasing, exude paranoia and can be visually intrusive. A home is not an army camp or a government complex. What would our country be if the whole length and breath of this beautiful country consists of fenced up or walled up neighbourhoods? Will it portray that our country is an unsafe place to live in and that there is no other option to address the safety issue?

Q: The guidelines specify that perimeter fencing is not allowed as it is normally built on road reserve.
A: Residents associations should understand that the construction of perimeter fencing will involve road reserve which, under the provision of National Land Code, is legally under the ownership of the public. Road reserves do not exclusively belong to members of the residents associations in guarded neighbourhood schemes.

Q: The guidelines discourage gated community to be implemented in rural areas, for fear of negative impact and social division. Does the ministry feel that such schemes can cause social division among the people in urban areas? Some felt that the schemes have actually brought the urban residents closer in terms of working hand-in-hand to make the neighbourhood a safer place for all.
A: There are cases that the schemes have brought the residents closer. However, this is mutually exclusive and rarely extend beyond the walls and fences of their neighbourhoods. There are many factors that can bring residents together.
Commons interests in safety (not necessarily walls or fences), such as community policing and community welfare have often brought people together. The timeless and priceless concept of “love thy neighbour” should be re-introduced by creative residents associations. This goes way beyond the need for fences and walls.

Q: Respondents have urged the government to set up a similar administration to the Commissioner of Building to oversee the residents associations in the event of disputes. Can this be done?
A: The guarded neighbourhood scheme operates on houses with individual land titles and not strata titles.
As such, there is no provision of a management corporation as with gated communities under the Strata Title Act 1985. The guarded neighbourhood scheme has sprung out to mirror facilities in a gated community, but still hold the benefits of individual titled land. The management corporation to some extent relieves local authorities from the responsibilities of daily upkeep, maintenance and administration. The ministry has no plan to set up a special administration to oversee the operation of the residents associations in guarded neighbourhoods as at present, the capacity and resources of local authorities are limited and catered for the interests of the wider community.

theStar: Non-paying residents at receiving end

http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2010/10/29/central/7309795&sec=central

Subscription to security schemes in residential areas often cause dispute among paying and non-paying residents.

While those who disagree with the schemes maintain that they have the freedom of choice, the rest think the former are taking advantage of those who contribute to the monthly fees.

A resident in Bukit Rahman Putra 7, Sungai Buloh, who stopped subscribing to the security services, was unhappy that the residents association put up two banners that read “Do not live on the charity of your neighbour. Please pay your share to protect your family”.

“No one can insult or humiliate us. We have equal rights to stay here without prejudice, shame and fear as the rest of the paying residents,” she said.

The resident spoke strongly against the action of putting up the tri-lingual banners at the guardhouse to embarrass the non-paying residents.

“It does not promote harmony within the neighbourhood and I certainly do not live on my neighbours’ charity,” she said.


Do your part: Bukit Rahman Putra 7 Residents Association chairman K.S. Ooi said this banner was put up to create awareness and encourage the residents to join the security scheme and not to humiliate them. – By THO XIN YI/The Star

The resident said she opted to drop out from the scheme as she was dissatisfied with the services provided by the security company.

She pointed out that a neighbouring residential area, Bukit Rahman Putra 6, also has a similar banner put up near its guardhouse.

When contacted, residents association chairman K.S. Ooi said the intention of putting up the banners was not to embarrass the residents and was not targeted at anyone in particular.

“It’s a general banner to create awareness and encourage the residents to join the security scheme,” he said.

He added that the fees charged by the security companies increased when the government stopped them from employing foreign guards.

“The residents association faced the plight when there is insufficient subscription to pay for the fees.

“Some residents take the security services for granted as it is paid for by other residents,” he said.

Ooi said he was upset over the sole complaint by the resident.

He added that out of the 348 houses, about 220 were participating members.

“Last year, two or three burglaries happened fortnightly. We are having the security service for the benefit of all,” he said.

Over in Taman Mutiara Puchong, the residents association face a problem of non-paying members and visitors hitting the boom gates to enter or exit the neighbourhood.

The association has to fork out RM600 every time the boom gate was hit, and it has happened more than 10 times.

Gerard Lim, a association committee member, said they had lodged police report and even took the matter to the magistrate court.

In a residents association meeting, it was decided that the signs that read “You Bang You Pay” to be displayed on the boom gates to stop the stubborn ones from hitting the bar again.

The method has proven effective as no other incident happened since then.

“The paying residents are given access cards to raise the automatic boom gates, while non-paying residents and visitors have to register at the guardhouse every time they want to enter the neighbourhood.

“It is not fair to 80% of the residents to pay for the non-paying ones.

“Our guards take care of the common area, such as the field, where children gather and play,” Lim said.

(Almost) Missing Child

Just now at the park a young girl approached me to help her find her missing young brother (6 years old). She was crying and scared. Me and another lady stopped and helped her contact her parents to find the missing child.

I then told her I would drive her around Puteri 11 to find the child.

After I drove my car to the park, the missing child re-appeared and everybody were relieved. She thanked us and went home with her brother.

We are lucky that this time we found the child back, false alarm. But we should learn from this and be extra careful with our children in future. Always know where is your children.

Comment on Security Summary Meeting

RA,

Missed the 1st meeting last sat on security issues. Glad to know that there will be succession session every sat of Oct for residents to meet RA and seek suggestion. Further to your summary, would like to seek more info and hope RA can clarify as follow. However, please do excuse me if these were brought up during the 1st meeting:

Point 1)
Can RA share the 3 proposal with us and what do you meant by preference given to Puteri 12 Security due to "operational synergy". If im not wrong, RA did highlight few security incident at Puteri 12. My Q's, why engage the same firm if security was in some way compromised. Isn't it "safer" if we have another security firm to safeguard our own area. Unless, you are looking at cost effectiveness. There again, i do not know how much the other 2 charged, their responsibilities, etc.

Point 2)
10 security guards proposed. Can you elaborate more in terms of security responsibility, area of coverage, accountability, shift pattern (24hrs coverage) and importantly, how much are the security personnel paid monthly. Dont get me wrong, we are in no position to question how much the firm pay their guards. But if the cost of each guard is RM1500 per month and they are paid (assumption) RM800 or RM900, what level of accountability will they assume? No one works for free. Security are not easy job and they deserved to be paid adequately to perform the job. I have had guards telling me off, "gaji kurang apa lu mau..." Unless, there are other cost to cover by the firm. Again, appreciate if RA can elaborate on this.

Point 3)
Car decal and security Tags issued to paying residents. Clearly meant that those that dont pay dont get these i assume. So, may i know what is the difference in terms of security treatment? Yes, I know, as mentioned many many times, we as neighbours have to work together, meaning contribute to the betterment of the Taman. I agree. But do bear in mind that these commitment are long term the moment you moved in till you move out from this area, as in paying the RM50 p/mth. OK, assuming that i am not a paying resident, so i dont get a car decal and security tag on my gate. Am i to register at the security post each time i need to come in/go out? What is the procedure? Can i harass the guard and intimidate him to let me pass tru if i refuse to "sign in/out". How strict can they be? I am voicing this out due to the fact that eventually, when there are residents who discontinue to pay or not satisfy or start to compare "why not paying (no decal) but still can access freely... blah..blah", thats when the issue starts and you see the contribution dwindle and eventually short of fund.. and so on... thats the usual scenario. So, do you have a system to solve this. Dont throw the Q back to me coz i dont know. Honestly.

Point 7)
Can RA elaborate the requirements for guards to have residence names, address and car number plate. Again, here im referring to what use of these and what system are they using to cross check these for what purpose. No point having it but not using it effectively. Again, security procedures.

Point 8)
Great to hear that there are follow up to the narrow road issue. I had commented on previous blog saying that its a waste of time with IOI and MPSJ and got a reply from RA President that its never a waste of time as there were issues that were solved previously by being patient with the respective parties. I can be wrong by making that statement. So, we just wait lah.... FYI, i did call mpsj few times myself to the extent of telling them that in one incident almost cause me an accident. My children were in the car. I had to brake hard. I drove slow uphill knowing the famous sempit road but there are a lot of inconsiderate drivers out there that knowing the road already so.... so...narrow, still bulldoze tru like F1 drivers. Lucky 2 of my kids were in child car seat, safely buckled. If not, probably one thrown tru the windscreen, the other have his head smash on to the front seat, breaking his neck!!!! Im not exaggerating, this can happen. Imagine all the daily school van FILLED with children plying the same route each day. My eldest son is in one of it. No seatbelt, overcrowded. Reply from MPSJ, working on it.... work... work. So, again, we wait and see who will be the casualty. I pray its not my family members and i pray its not yours either. Just like the express bus incident. We just wait, and wait... Pls do fwd this to IOI and MPSJ. Let them know our daily hazard.

Point 18 & 19)
Since there are 471 houses in Puteri 11, assuming every resident pay, monthly security fee total to 15k (RM1500 x 10) so in average we are looking at RM31.84. round to RM32 per household to cover the cost. Now, since there are 270 that sent in consent we will have total of RM13,500 (270 x RM50), assuming everyone paid. Who will bear the balance of RM1,500? Off course i hope more will participate. Basically, the more the cheaper. And what if the collection reduced? Again, its there a way to cover this?

Point 21)
I agreed, internet is cheap and fast as Mr President replied in my earlier comment. Other channel will be used when necessary. I agreed. For the benefit of residence that do not access internet, or illiterate, pls do not get offended by my statement (I meant non English speaking), can i suggest RA approach IOI to sponsor to put up 2 notice board at the play ground (Nadia and Oliver) and another 1 at Primrose. Create a bulletin area. They can either build a standalone structure or incorporate in the covered seating area. This helps the RA in many ways. If necessary, dont waste time doing house drop of letters, leaflet, etc. Just have them on the notice board. SHOUT OUT to the residence to refer to notice board for updates, info, activities, etc. At least notices in 2 or 3 language (ie Eng, Mandarin, Bahasa, etc). If IOI stingy, then RA raise this up and suggest to us residence. We can chip in to get it done.     

Kudos to the RA for spearheading this exercise. Lets discuss these on the next meeting this Saturday.

Finally, just a suggestion to everyone who commented or intend to comment in this blog. Since there's emphasis from RA that we as neighbours should get along and know each other better, can i suggest that we start by ending our comment with your name and not to have "Anonymous" signing off. At least the next time whenever we meet during the meet the residence session, etc, we know who we are talking to. Hope you guys get what i meant. BTW, RA, lets organise a TT session in one of the mamak lah. My treat for the 1st session. What you guys say.... Someone have to start somewhere... Cheers.

Security Warning To Residents Of Puteri 11

There were some houses broken into in Bandar Puteri Puchong in the month of September 2010.

In Puteri 12 alone, there were a few incidents where the burglars strike during daytime when there was no one in the house. 

The suspects were well dressed Chinese men driving expensive cars like BMW, Mercedes, Volvo, Camry and Accord to camouflage their actions.

They drove passed the security guardhouse by pretending to be interested buyers of the bungalow houses in Puteri 12.

A meeting between Bandar Puteri RAs and the District Police Chief will be held this Sunday, 10 October 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at the Puteri 6 Basketball Court.

The meeting will discuss increasing the role of the Police and Residents in crime prevention in Bandar Puteri Puchong.

Puteri 11 Residents are advise;
  1. to be on the alert and call the police when there are such strangers roaming near your houses.

Illegal construction blocking backlane access road

As a responsible resident in Puchong Puteri 11, I found this illegal construction blocking the access road to the backlane of Primrose, Jalan Puteri 11/18.
The owner should realise that the backlane is belongs to MPSJ and it main purpose is to ease rescue effort in the unfortunate event of a fire.
I hope the house owner who put up this illegal construction can be more consideate for others in the neighbourhood and take the responsibility to remove it without needing to take it to MPSJ.

Attached is the snapshot of the illegal construction and an article from Star online stating that blocking backlane will hamper rescue efforts.

Please be kind enough to put this message onto the website such that we can raise awareness among the resident of Puteri 11.

Thank you.

Comment from a resident

From Mr Kuan

RA, if you need more support, do something!! "Promote" yourselves to the Puteri 11 community. I know its never eazy, but hey, you guys were elected. So, do something about it. Waiting for IOI and MPSJ is just a waste of time as far as i know. BTW, if you guys are concern on certain issues, dont just post on the blog.

Pls understand that there are owners out there that do not access your blog or even know how to (not all are computer literate) access info and are in the dark as to what the RA is doing all these while, me included. So, if you guys are serious about this issue, try to inform everyone as effectively as possible. Probably, as a suggestion, you may want to organise a meet the residents session every fortnight, etc. I believe you will slowly gain more crowd and support eventually. But making the 1st move (ACT) is more important.

Not just blah...blah... in the blog. Honestly, who cares what was in the blog!! I read, if i feel like commenting, i type, then..... what??? Thats the fact isn't it. Honestly, i dont even know who are you guys (committees). Best part, you guys never take the opportunity during the mooncake gathering to introduce yourself and to raise this issue. There were nearly 200 adults and children came. Dont you think it was a good platform to intro the committees and raise some issues. Tell the owners, they will then share with their neighbours, so on... At least you get to send some message across.

What happen to the appointment of security firm? Whats the updates? Dont get me wrong, im not here to critisize the RA. I will support, definitely, for the equal benefits to myself and the rest of the owners. But, there must be some effort and sacrifice. Work out something to BUILD the community FIRST. How much support do you think you can get via this blog??

REPLY

Dear Mr Kuan,

Thank you for your comments. I think they are fair and constructive. We truly welcome people like you who can contribute to the RA. Please except our invitation to be a member of the Puteri 11 RA Committee. How can I get in touch with you?

For a start, I would like to provide here my brief explanations to your comments so you are aware of what is happening.

  1. Yes, the RA need to promote itself to the Puteri 11 residents. Some works have been done but these were not effectively communicated across to the residents.
  2. It was difficult to get people to serve in the RA Committee, so we manage to persuade some volunteers, and everyone who stood for elections were elected to the Committee.
  3. It is not always a waste of time waiting for IOI and MPSJ to take actions. We do get some things done through them over the past one year.
  4. Blog is just one of the avenue we communicate. It is inexpensive and fast and is effective to a certain extent.
  5. The RA Committee held a number of meetings over the past one year including one AGM. The residents were invited to all our meetings but very few showed up.
  6. Agreed the RA should have promoted itself during the moon cake festival as you have mentioned.
  7. We have received proposals from two Security companies and are evaluating them. A meeting with residents is being planned for on Saturday afternoon on 9th October 2010.

Mr Kuan, we would like you to come forward and share your experience with us.

You can contact me anytime on my h/p 016-2323480, email: tuncheng@hotmail.com.

Hope to hear from you very soon.

Thanks and regards,

Chiam Tun Cheng
Puter 11 RA Chairman
