BBRAeNEWS No.240 - Another illegal land grab
Reported by BBRA committee member.
"This morning I walked round our BB lake side and when passing Kiara Precint, I noticed house No. 26, Jalan Kiara 13 (the semi-d row) under going renovations and extensions. Indeed it was REALLY EXTENSIONS much to my chagrin, the extension was more towards occupation as in occupying public land (road side reserve) in front of the said house, without the slightest thought for road users' safety. This blatant act should be officially reported by BBRA to MPK and demand that the construction be put to an IMMEDIATE STOP!"
From the pictures, it is obvious that the owner of the house has "claimed" public land and added it to his house renovations. This has dwarfed his immediate neighbours and quite frankly destroyed the aesthetics of the street by being a sore thumb that protrudes onto the road.
As a matter of principle, BBRA will lodge an official complaint to the authorities on the matter. However, residents can also do their part in voicing their feedback on the matter to us or even directly to MPK.
The front parameter of the house has extended by what looks like 10 feet. Is this really happening? Would you allow your neighbour to do this if you were living next door?
Please look at where the original refuse chamber and housing gate and the "illegally built"new one.
Can we stay mum to this?
