Hannah Yeoh: A 'significant' part of Bukit Kiara Federal Park gazetted as green lung

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 4): A “significant” part of Bukit Kiara Federal Park has been officially gazetted as a green lung, the Malay Mail reported Segambut lawmaker Hannah Yeoh (pictured) saying today.

Yeoh explained that since 274.3 acres of the federal park have now been gazetted, “there will be laws to secure the park from land grab attempts and indiscriminate development”.

However, she added that Bukit Kiara Federal Park “should not be confused with Taman Rimba Kiara (TRK) as they are two different locations” with the latter’s case still being decided in court, reported the news portal.

“I’d like to thank the former Segambut MP, Lim Lip Eng, for fighting for this and the former FT minister Khalid Abdul Samad.

“Although there are existing leases, we tried to negotiate with the lease owners but we couldn’t find an agreement so we went ahead to gazette 274.3 acres first.

“Looking back, we are very grateful that we managed to get all of this done, because after that the Sheraton Move happened,” Yeoh said.

The same report stated that the decision to gazette was actually made by the previous Pakatan Harapan (PH) government but the official gazettement was only recently issued for 274.3 acres of the park.
