Four out of five housing projects abandoned since 1999 revived

02/05/2002 NST

April 30: Five housing and industrial projects were reported to have been abandoned in Malacca since 1999 and they involve some 3,143 units and 1,418 buyers.

However, four have been revived and works are expected to resume soon.

State Housing, Local Government and Environment committee chairman Datuk Mo'min Abdul Aziz said the affected projects were in Taman Seri Bertam in Bertam Ulu, Taman Kota Laksamana in Kota Laksamana, Taman Sejati in Merlimau, Malaysia-China Light Industrial City in Tanjung Minyak and Taman Perindustrian Ayer Keroh in Ayer Keroh.

Mo'min said the State Government was concerned about the abandoned projects and had taken ample steps to assist buyers apart from ensuring that the projects continues.

"As a result of our efforts, work on four of the abandoned projects have been revived," he said in reply to a question from Betty Chew Gek Cheng (DAP - Durian Daun).

The projects which have been revived were in Taman Seri Bertam, Malaysia-China Light Industrial City, Taman Kota Laksamana and Taman Sejati.

Mo'min said works for Taman Perindustrian Ayer Keroh were stopped as the developer had encountered financial difficulties and was now trying to secure loans to resume the project.

He added that the developer, Pakatan Mawar, had given its assurance that work on the project would resume by July.

To another question from Sim Tong Him (DAP - Bandar Hilir), Mo'min said the State Government was aware that a winding-up order had been issued against Pakatan Mawar by the Kuala Lumpur High Court.

He said the three-month grace period given to the developer was final and if the developer fails to continue the project within the stipulated time, it may be given to other developers.
