Crackdown on illegal structures resumes in Bandar Puteri Puchong

MBSJ workers using a backhoe to demolish illegally built structures and drain covers at Jalan Bandar Puteri 2/3, Puchong.

SUBANG Jaya City Council (MBSJ) continued its crackdown on illegally built structures and extensions at Jalan Bandar Puteri 2/3, Bandar Puteri Puchong in Puchong, Selangor.

The operation saw MBSJ officers demolishing illegal structures and removing drain covers along the back lane and side of the road.

“A total of 13 premises were identified for enforcement during this operation,” said MBSJ’s Corporate And Strategic Management Department in a media statement.

“They had violated Section 46 and Section 70 of the Street, Drainage and Building Act 1974 (Act 133).

“This involves the offence of building structures or obstructions in public places without permission.”

The one-day joint operation involved personnel from several MBSJ departments, namely building, enforcement, licensing, engineering and environmental management as well as KDEB Waste Management and the Serdang district police.

After the illegal structures were demolished, KDEB Waste Management workers proceeded to clean the drains.

MBSJ councillor for Zone 16 George Yap Kok Weng said there were many restaurants in Bandar Puteri Puchong 2 and some of the operators expanded their premises by carrying out unauthorised renovation, such as building structures and covering drains.

“This poses a challenge to MBSJ and KDEB contractors as they are unable to clean the drains.

“It results in clogged drains and breeding of pests.

“MBSJ halted enforcement action when the Covid-19 pandemic started but now it it is time for us to resume normal operations,” said Yap.The city council said it would continue carrying out periodic monitoring of commercial areas.

“Building owners and tenants are advised to cooperate by not throwing rubbish and food waste into drains.

“They must also ensure their drain covers can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance.”
