TTDI vs DBKL: Green Lung or Built Blocks?
Hafiz Abu Bakar, TTDI Residents Association | Leon Koay, Save Taman Rimba Kiara Working Group
In June 2016, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) issued a notice of a proposed development on a portion of land situated within Taman Rimba Kiara. Taman Rimba Kiara is one of the few remaining planned public parks of its size in KL, and serves as a treasured green lung and open space for thousands of Klang Valley residents. The Taman Tun Dr Ismail Residents Association are now taking legal action against DBKL, to protect Taman Rimba Kiara against any proposed development. We find out more about their case from Hafiz Abu Bakar, the Chairman of the TTDI Residents Association and Leon Koay, a member of the Save Taman Rimba Kiara Working Group.
