PETALING JAYA (July 30): Segambut MP Hannah Yeoh said all structural development in Taman Rimba Kiara must cease immediately as the legal dispute between the developer and nearby residents hasn’t resolved yet, reported the Malay Mail.

“The case is still at the Court of Appeal. They must respect the court process because the case is on-going in Court of Appeal… how can they start doing work when the matter is yet to be decided in court?” Yeoh told the reporters at a media conference at Taman Rimba Kiara Park today.

The residents who stayed near the park have seen construction workers putting up 2m-high poles in the park, next to the football field. The residents are worried that the developer is trying to start the construction while the legal dispute is still unresolved.

The Taman Rimba Kiara case involves residents challenging a development project comprising nine apartment blocks -- part of a joint venture between Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan (YWP) and Memang Perkasa Sdn Bhd.

“We have checked with DBKL (Kuala Lumpur City Hall), but the officers don’t seem to know what is going on hence the press conference today to tell them they (YWP) are encroaching into the park which they have previously promised not to,” Yeoh added.

DBKL has on July 29, 2020, announced that the name of Taman Rimba Kiara park in Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI), Kuala Lumpur, will be changed to Taman Awam Bukit Kiara.

Tha name change has caused an outcry among TTDI residents as the local authority has not consulted them nor given any explanation on the name change.
