Illegal food stalls in Puchong neighbourhood torn down


An excavator was used to demolish the stalls in Taman Saujana Puchong.

SEVERAL illegal food stalls built on a buffer zone in Taman Saujana Puchong, Puchong, were demolished during a joint operation led by the Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ).

In a statement, its Corporate and Strategic Management Department deputy director Azfarizal Abdul Rashid said the council had earlier issued notices to the stall owners that they had committed an offence under Section 70 of the Street, Drainage and Building Act 1974.

They were given 14 days to remove the structures failing which the city council would demolish them.

“The demolition was necessary as the stalls could pose a safety and hygiene problem.

“No structure can be built on buffer zones without the owner’s permission, which in this case is under MBSJ’s purview, ” he added.

Thirteen food stalls located at the intersection of Persiaran Saujana Puchong and Jalan SP 3/9 were demolished after failing to comply with the city council’s notice.

The joint operation included 26 officers from MBSJ’s Building, Enforcement, Engineering, Town Planning, Environmental Management and Management Services departments as well as 12 policemen from the Subang Jaya and Bukit Puchong police stations.

Azfarizal added that MBSJ would continue monitoring the situation periodically and urged the public to comply with regulations, although flexibility had been given to traders during the conditional movement control order.
