The Developer and Majlis had created a big dilemma to 445 purchasers or residents of Phase 8A (197 units) & Phase 8B (248 units). The Majlis wanted to open up the divider fencing between the 2 phases but failed to address the issue of connecting roads (cul-de-sac), security control over the perforation of perimeter fencing and the legality of 8b guardhouse of the two separated G&G schemes.
It is like a conjoined twins or commonly named as Siamese twins. It is difficult to be surgically resolved. Most cases of separation are extremely risky and life-threatening. In many cases, the surgery results in the death of one or both of the twins. Even the surgery is successful they do not live to their normal life expectancy or premature death.
Similarly, it is cautious that, any harsh action imposed by the authority without due consideration and consultation with the JPP, RA and all the residents is likely detrimental to the effort of promoting long lasting security, peace, stability and good neighbourhood or harmonious living environment to the region.
Please see below, from the old master plan, it is clear that 8A & 8B were in fact planned as 1 phase with 1 exit, 1 garden or playground in the middle. But some way along the development (gestation), the embryo splits into two, or became Siamese twins with 2 exits (2 mouths) , 2 RAs (2 heads), 2 bodies (2 phases), 1 playground ( sharing 1 lung and 1 heart)…..
Now, the developer (mother) and the authority (surgeon) blames the twin babies why can’t you all just live a happy life and be quiet instead keep crying every day & night…………
The then GM Mr Ivan Hor says “extra” features provided at no additional cost are what differentiate Taman Putra Prima from other developments. Each phase for instance, will be fenced up, with his own guarded access and this is for free. (TheEDGE 17 December 2001)
A value proposition for investors and homebuyers alike, Taman Putra Prima’s newly launched Phase 8A offers 197 units of freehold double storey terrace houses built on 22’ x 65’ lots served with a fully equipped playground of its own.
