SUBJECT: Objection to the proposal to change the land status of “Taman 5, Putrajaya" from 'open space' to 'development.'
We object to the continued threat and conversion of open spaces & green lungs to development. Malaysians living in urban areas have insufficient access to open spaces, and yet the limited open spaces & green lungs are under constant threat from developers. As our government and administrative officials, you have an obligation to protect the interests of the people. You can do this by protecting the few remaining green lungs & opens spaces in urban areas.
We object to the proposal to change the land status of “Taman 5” (next to Alamanda Shopping Centre, Putrajaya) from 'open space' to 'development.'
This park is gazetted and is used by students of a nearby residential school (Sekolah Alam Shah) as well as by the community. This green area also acts as a natural drainage for surface water runoff from the nearby precincts of 12, 14 & 15. This park is also one of the green connectors indicated in the master plan of Putrajaya as well as the Putrajaya Structure Plan 2025 which has been gazetted on 7th March 2014.
To develop this land would mean not just a loss of open space but also disrupt the natural flow of water. Stop this land conversion. Protect open spaces & green lungs for the health of the people.
