theStar: People’s Voice carnival heads to Bandar Puteri

Come July 17, Bandar Puteri Puchong residents will be given a chance to voice their concerns at The Star’s People’s Voice — You’ve Got the Power carnival.

The fourth edition since the introduction of the year-long campaign in April, the carnival will feature a live broadcast and a Q&A session for the residents to engage directly with their local authorities and agencies.

The idea of signing up for the carnival in the booming township was first brought up by Bandar Puteri 10 (Banyan) Residents Association, which is headed by Alex Wong.

Other residents associations in Bandar Puteri Puchong were roped in later to take part in the carnival together.

Adviser for the residents associations, Datuk Samson David Maman, said the People’s Voice carnival is a proactive effort to address community issues, particularly on making the neighbourhood a safe place.

Besides the dialogue to be moderated by Norina Yahya and RedFM deejay JD, there would be an array of activities and booths to make it a lively event.

If you are a Bandar Puteri Puchong resident and would like to raise your views and concerns, you can reach us via People’s Voice Twitter and Facebook accounts.

The previous three carnivals were held in Bandar Utama in Petaling Jaya, Bandar Botanic in Klang and Taman Seputeh in Kuala Lumpur.

Please do not burn incense at park

Please do not burn incense at the park. The park belongs to all residents, not your personal worship altar. When you burn incense at the park, everybody have to suffer from the damage and dirty left-overs. If you must burn, please burn it within your car porch area. Maybe then you will remember to clean up the place. Now the children who plays at the playground suffers from your inconsiderate actions.

theStar: Residents say no to condo project

theStar: Residents say no to condo project

Bandar Puteri 11 residents want the developer to stick to constructing low-rise residential units instead of condominium blocks on a site near their homes.

They felt short-changed when the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) put up a notice about the proposed high-rise project in May last year.

They thought the piece of land was reserved for low-density houses as shown in the model when they purchased their houses.

About 30 of them gathered on Saturday morning to make their voices heard. They were concerned about safety issues.

“The narrow site is sandwiched between two steep slopes, and during a heavy downpour, we can see mini waterfalls gushing down the slopes.
Not suitable: The residents said it was not suitable to have condominium blocks on the narrow site sandwiched between two steep slopes.

“Soil erosion had occurred at a slope near our houses, which led to the construction of retaining walls. It would be too dangerous to build condominium blocks here,” residents association chairman TC Chiam said.

He added that the original plan was to have three 19-storey condominium blocks, but following a meeting last month, the developer had proposed to reduce the number of blocks to two but the number of units remained at 422.

Chiam said the residents are also worried about the possible traffic problems at the main road, Jalan Puteri 11/1.

“Cars are parked at both sides of the road in front of Bayu Puteri Apartments, which has caused many near-accidents.

“The situation would worsen if another high-rise residential block is constructed here,” he said.

Other concerns include the possible social impact and noise pollution.

The residents had summitted their objection letters to the Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, the MPSJ urban planning department, Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo and state executive councillors Teresa Kok and Elizabeth Wong last year.

In July last year, the developer was asked to conduct geotechnical studies, traffic and environmental impact assessments.

MPSJ councillor Tan Jo Hann said the council has not approved the developer’s planning permission application.

“Our duty is to make sure that the developer takes all aspects of safety into consideration. Also, another access road must be identified should there be development here,” he said.

When contacted, a Flora Development spokesperson said the condominium project was stated in the approved layout plan and master layout brochure.

“It is in accordance to the approved layout plan with low density of 35 units per acre,” he said.

He added that the slope was safe and the developer would ensure it is maintained as such after building the proposed condominium.

“The geotechnical consultant is of the opinion that the proposed development shall not adversely affect the stability of slopes within the site by implementing the recommendations stated in the geotechnical assessment report.

“The report was designed to meet the most stringent requirement as in accordance to the Hong Kong Geotechnical Slope Manual.

“The recommendations are also in accordance with Public Works Institute’s (Ikram) requirement and all comments from Ikram are incorporated in the geotechnical assessment report,” he said.

As for the proposed project worsening the traffic situation at Jalan Puteri 11/1, the spokesperson said there are 274 vacant car parks during daytime and 126 at night in Bayu Puteri Apartments, but the residents seem to prefer to park along the road rather than within the compounds.

“Based on the traffic impact assessment conducted by our consultant, the current road is able to sustain the additional traffic from the proposed development.

“We will nevertheless consider widening the access road at Jalan Puteri 11/1,” the spokesperson said.

High-rise condo protest at MalaysiaKini website

MalaysiaKini has an article on the Puteri 11 residents protest against the high-rise condo.

MalaysiaKini: Puteri Puchong 11 residents say no to slope development

Some 530 residents at Bandar Puteri Puchong 11 voiced their protest against the proposed high-density development in the midst of two slopes, worried the land will not be able to support heavy buildings.

Puteri Puchong 11 residents’ association chairman Chiam Tun Cheng said the upper slope has exceeded 35 degrees in gradient and was hit with several landslides before.

"The slope collapsed last year and was then reinforced with a retention wall. We are worroed about the safety if they build such high-rise buildings over there,"

The proposed development by developer at the slender strip of land nearby Bayu Puteri Puchong and Puteri 11 includes two 18-storey buildings, one 19-storeycondominium, two 4-storey building and one 2-storey clubhouse.
The proposed high-rise buildings are located in between two slopes.

Besides prompting safety concerns, the residents also bemoan the traffic woes they might suffer.

"Currently we are sharing the same two-lane road with Bayu Puteri (condominium) residents, which is already congested because many Bayu Puteri residents park their cars by the side of the road,"

"Now we see the new project will also use the same road as the entrance, my question is, how (is that road) going to accommodate such traffic?"

He said the proposed project will see another 2110 residents coming in if fully occupied and will make the crooked road the only access route for all 5730 residents.
Going in and out is already an uneasy job for the residents now.

Two agents apparently supported the residents’ opinion. The department of drainage and irrigation in its letter dated March 31, 2009 said they do not support the project because they do not agree with the proposed on-site detention (OSD).

Infrastructure solution provider IKRAM meanwhile suggested that the project should be revised to a low-density one seeing that the site is steep in its surface and the buffer zone is not enough for high-rise buildings.

The residents, who mostly moved in during 2009, first saw the development notice board erected in June, 2009.

"We are surprised that what stated on the notice board was not the same as what we were (told).

"When we bought our houses, we were shown this township model (showing) this piece of land will only be turned into some five-storey buildings,"

"All Primrose, Olivia and Nadia purchasers were even convinced with the brochures that they would be able to enjoy a panorama view of the whole town,"

"If they build such high-rise condominiums, how are we going to have our view?"
The purchasers were promised a spacious panorama view in the brochures.

The residents submitted their protest to MPSJ and went for the council meeting with the developer twice. In the second meeting after both JPS and IKRAM suggestions were presented, the developer revised it into two even higher buildings instead of three.

"The residents are against any high-density development, we can only accept a low-rise one," Chiam said.

He meanwhile said the residents are still willing to discuss the issue with the developer to reach an amicable solution.
