New application, same destruction

Malaysian Assurance Alliance Bhd have resubmitted their plans to clear the hills of Ampang. The new notice of application signed by Awang Mustapha Bin Md Yunus (Pengarah Jabatan Perancang Bandar - MPAJ) is to develop 149 bungalow lots and 460 offices on one of the last remaining hills on Jalan Ulu Klang.

This is a never-ending battle, and the constant resubmissions by the developer and numerous public hearings with MPAJ seem to be designed to wear us down. But let's not give up. If the project goes as plan, it will forever changed the landscape, beauty and tranquility of Ampang and Ulu Klang.

Though the MPAJ signboards gives a deadline of the 5th September to submit our objections, some residents have received their notices on the 14th August, thus with a deadline of 4th September, given the 21 days. Consequently we are advised that all written objections should reach the MPAJ's Office by Thursday, 30th August 2007. For those who wish to use a sample letter, please write to for one. Please sign 2 copies, one for MPAJ, another to be kept for your own records once MPAJ stamps it.

Please submit your Objection Letter to MPAJ asap. They have given us very short notice. Please do not miss this chance! Act now!
