Resident Datuk P. Gunasilan at the townhall meeting on May 7 objecting the proposed development on Taman Rimba Kiara said he originally helped with the Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2020 and encourages stronger action plans as it is not enough to simply sign petitions but appeal to the National Physical Planning Council. He was one of many TTDI residents and Taman Rimba Kiara supporters objecting to the project.

I REFER to the letter by Dr Pola Singh (The Star, Oct 13, Open areas are getting smaller) and I fully agree with the views and concerns raised by the writer.

While it is understood that development must take place, it must be in accordance with proper studies on its impact on the quality of living for the common folk. As a long-time resident of Bangsar, I have seen the rapid urbanisation and growth over the last few decades. Parking is a daily problem and traffic congestion is the norm. Even the residential areas are not spared when it comes to indiscriminate parking especially by those who work in the commercial areas in the vicinity. These cars are parked for long hours, much to the displeasure and unhappiness of the residents living here, many of whom are retirees, pensioners and ordinary folk who just want some peace of mind.
