The term ‘Gated and Guarded’ or G&G often invokes images of an exclusive enclave of the rich and famous. A residential haven with spacious, expensive houses equipped with exceptional security features such as :
- 24-hour patrol services, guardhouses with sentry guards on the alert,
- Gates or high fences at the entrance of the area with rigid rules and stringent regulations for entry and exit systems.
- The state of the art CCTV surveillance and even perimeter fencing with laser detectors.
While this may be true in some cases, in Malaysia, G&G developments are not just catered to the super wealthy but middle class wage earners too.
The home buyers perspectives on G&G Development: Security, privacy, exclusivity, luxury and prestige.
APPEAL OF G&G DEVELOPMENTS
These days, it seems near impossible to flip through the newspaper without reading a harrowing story about a robbery or break-in. Crimes are ubiquitous and people are getting more cautious and willing to pay for their peace of mind. Many property buyers are specifically seeking out a high level of security when searching for their homes. “Guarded and gated developments have become popular largely due to the high crime rates,” says Chan Wai Seen, executive director of JS Valuers Research & Consultancy.
Due to this increasing demand in secure housing, property developers have to constantly evolve their builds in order to keep up with these buyer’s desires.

The eyesore and flimsy fencing restoration work before.
Fence restoration was poorly done before
It is properly done now after complaining to Plenitude HQ
Thanks to Mr Tai Yoon Jen and Terence Choong
The RA committee and workers were repairing the torn fencing to another portion at our cost.
In any successful G&G scheme, the two most fundamental and prerequisite physical attributes are the defined non-perforated perimeter fencing and a fully equipped entrance and exit security check point or guard-house.
It is meaningless to have over 96% residents subscription to our security plan with a fully legalized and sophisticated guard-house while our perimeter fencing is torn or in bad shape. More over the RA had fulfilled one of the condition required by the Majlis and developer to sign an undertaking letter (akujanji atau surat sumpah) for the maintenance and up keeping of the defined perimeter fencing and to bear all its cost.
The pictures above are portions of the fencing being torn down by the developer/contractor to pave way for the construction of connecting road between 8A & 8B and later reinstated with barricades and damaged chain-link fence.
It is indeed very eyesore to any reasonable minded residents that such fencing being restored to such a terrible condition for a brand new or just recently handed over beautiful housing estate. Unfortunately after we had made several complaints to Plenitude Permai Puchong project manager, it was unheard, so we left with no choice but to forward another written complaint to Plenitude HQ CEO through the Gabungan Secretary Mr Terence Choong. Subsequently, the torn fence was restored to an acceptable level by the next working day after his follow-up meeting with Plenitude GM Project Mr Tai Yoon Jen from HQ.
We, the RA and residents of 8A would like to openly thank Mr Terence Choong and Mr Tai Yoon Jen for being most helpful and responsive to our call and concern, and their positive gesture and fast action is very much appreciated.
Accoding to a recent survey conducted by StarProperty.my to find out their top criteria when it came to choosing a property.
Criterion 1: Gated and Guarded
A gated and guarded neighbourhood is important when defining the perfect property
Top on the list for our Malaysian respondents was being in a gated and guarded community. Nearly half the respondents voted this as the most important feature in their dream property.
This can understandably be traced to the number of break-ins and robberies which has been increasing in certain areas, so much so that many homeowners have now installed alarm and security systems.
Somewhat reflecting these findings, the gated and guarded feature has increasingly been seen as a key selling point for many projects.
Round-the-clock security patrols,
Single entry and exit points,
Closed-circuit televisions (CCTV) throughout the development,
Perimeter fencing around the development and
Access cards give homeowners peace of mind.
Criterion 2: Proximity to work
The amount of time wasted on the road may after all be spent taking your children to the park, catching up with friends over dinner or working out at the gym.
Criterion 3: Friendly, good and trustworthy neighbours
The third most important factor that surprisingly ranked high among most respondents was having friendly and trustworthy neighbours.
Criterion 4: At least two parking spaces
The respondents also agreed that having at least two parking spaces was important.
