Comply with the by-laws, CM reminds developers
30/01/2007 Daily Express

Kota Kinabalu: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman reminded developers to comply with the State's by-laws, such as not encroaching into open space and riparian reserve. "The relevant authorities must not compromise on this and must ensure that developers comply before approving any development plan," he said.

The Chief Minister said this during a joint briefing by Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad (SPNB) and Sabah Housing Development Board on the status of the development of some 31,000 units of affordable homes (Rumah Mampu Milik) throughout Sabah at his office at Wisma Innoprise, here.

"I don't want to see any encroachment into children's playgrounds, parks and so on, " he said.

"We have to be firm on this because non-compliance is one of the factors causing massive surface run-offs, overflowing drains and eventually floods."

Musa, who is also Finance Minister, said developers must also be more creative and innovative and move away from boring and dated designs. He reminded SPNB and LPPB of their respective responsibilities of ensuring that their projects were completed on schedule and that the quality of the work was maintained.

"These housing projects must be completed on time so that the people can benefit," he said.

Also present were Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Hajiji Mohd Noor, Permanent Secretary Datuk Ujang Sulani, SPNB Chairman Datuk Azian Osman and SPNB Managing Director Datuk Mohd Amin Mohd Salleh.
