Sabah's developers asked to comply with laws
29/01/2007 The Star

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah's property developers were reminded to comply with the state's laws and not encroach into open spaces and riverine reserves.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman said he did not want to see developers using children's playgrounds and parks for their projects.

"On their part, the relevant authorities must not compromise on this and they must ensure that developers are toeing the line before approving any development plans," he said.

Musa said this following 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 throughout Sabah in his office at Wisma Innoprise on Friday.

"We have to be firm on this matter because non-compliance is one of the factors causing massive surface runoffs, overflowing drains and eventually floods," he added,

At the briefing Musa also called on developers to be more creative and innovative and move away from outdated designs.

He also reminded SPNB and LPPB of their respective responsibilities of ensuring that their projects were completed on schedule and ensure that the quality of the work was maintained.

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

Also present during the state Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Hajiji Mohd. Noor, SPNB chairman, Datuk Azian Bin Osman and managing director Datuk Mohd Amin Mohd Salleh.
