Mayor Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail told reporters after a dialogue session with Medan Damansara residents on Oct 22 that the issue over the hill slope development would be presented to the cabinet for a decision.
Residents have been given a month to submit a memorandum to DBKL if they do not want the project in the area. He said DBKL will then attach the memorandum together with other documents for submission to the Federal Territory Ministry and presented to the Cabinet.
“I cannot make a decision. The residents have one month to compile their views and supporting documents and submit them to us,” he said.
The 5.68-acre freehold Damansara 21 residential development was deemed a high-risk development after two landslips occurred at the site last year. The incident forced two families to evacuate. Work on the project was halted after the landslips. Medan Damansara residents have been protesting against the project for the past three years.
The high-end project comprises 21 luxury bungalows priced between RM10 million and RM15 million each.
“Ikram has worked together with the developer to come up with a fourth layout of the project. The first three were rejected,” Ahmad Fuad said.
Kumpulan Ikram Sdn Bhd is an independent consultant appointed by DBKL to look into the technical aspects of the project. Ikram and the developer have also worked on remedial measures to strengthen the slope and prevent land movements.
Nevertheless as work has been stopped and “the land has been disturbed. We fear for the safety of Medan Damansara residents. Anything can happen, that is why we need to reach a decision soon,” Ahmad Fuad said.
