									PKNS MUST CANCEL PROPOSED KELANA JAYA DEVELOPMENT

The revelation by the Selamatkan Padang Rakyat committee last week
that the proposed development of the PKNS Sports Complex in Kelana
Jaya was based on the unlawful version of the local plan Rancangan
Tempatan Petaling Jaya 2 (RTPJ2) has big consequences not just for the
project but for development in Petaling Jaya as a whole.

Previously the local community were briefed that the field was zoned
as commercial. Even the MBPJ councillors and I were provided with the
same information.

The fact that there are differences between the legally gazetted RTPJ2
published by the Selangor Town and Country Planning Department and the
second version raises many questions.

MBPJ too has agreed that the first version which states the PKNS field
as a recreational correct.

I have previously called for the matter to be brought to the Selangor
Select Committee on Competency, Accountability and Transparency
(SELCAT). However the Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim has
announced the formation of an independent committee regarding the
matter.

I welcome the announcement to bring the culprits to task but I believe
it is time PKNS make the right decision to cancel the Kelana Jaya
development for the sake of the community. The project clearly cannot
proceed as it goes against the Town and Country Planning Act 1976 and
we should lay the matter to rest once and for all.
