GATED COMMUNITY FOR MM2H Print E-mail
Thursday, 14 October 2010 00:00

MANY residents in the Klang Valley have been taking safety into their own hands, but not necessarily good for MM2H

They fork out money to hire security guards to patrol their streets, and some chip in to fence up their area to prevent intrusion of strangers into their neighbourhoods.

While the intention is to have a safer place to live in, there have been instances where these security schemes caused disputes among the residents.

Therefore, it is timely for the Housing and Local Government Ministry to release a set of Gated Community and Guarded Neighbourhood Guidelines to regulate the situation.

The guidelines, introduced in September, clearly spelled out the do’s and don’ts for gated community with strata title and guarded neighbourhood with individual titles.

Both are only allowed to be implemented in urban areas, especially those with a high crime rate.

Although it is a trend at many guarded neighbourhoods, perimeter fencing and blocking of backlanes and sidelines are not allowed.

According to the Frequently Asked Questions section in the guidelines, the fences that surrounded guarded neighbourhood are built on road reserve, hence the prohibition.

The permission to erect temporary physical obstacles like manual boomgates, cones and security signs will be considered provided the locations are manned by security guards around the clock.

The guarded neighbourhood scheme is strictly prohibited at housing areas with public facilities, such as schools, mosques and community halls, and those which are part of the public bus routes
