KUALA LUMPUR: Pantai Panorama Condominium residents in Bangsar South are hoping City Hall will direct a developer to rebuild a 12.1m tall slope near their housing area and ensure its safety.
Residents' representative Danny Ong said they are concerned about the slope located 9.1m from the perimeter of the condominium.
The retaining wall -- which was meant to support the slope, but left incomplete for the past three years -- was hacked by a developer recently, leaving the slope exposed.
Following complaints on safety from residents, City Hall ordered the developer to submit plans to build a new retaining wall which must be designed by a geotechnical consultant and approved by Ikram.
Last Tuesday, residents were enraged to learn that the developer had carried out works on the slope without consent from City Hall.
A check by the residents with City Hall revealed that the developer had not submitted plans for the work to City Hall.
Met at the site on Saturday, Ong said City Hall had agreed to set up a meeting today to discuss the matter further with the developer.
Residents wanted work on the slope to be halted pending Ikram's approval of the plan before it is submitted to City Hall.
"We hope City Hall will give the developer a deadline to rectify the problem. City Hall should play its part by ensuring the developer completes the task.
"We want the developer to restore the wall and protect it from soil erosion which could weaken the foundation of the slope.
"And we want a competent engineer to certify in a report that the slope is safe," he said.
Ong said the wall was hacked because of correction work on a road it has previously built.
During the site visit, construction workers were seen clearing debris and rubbish and placing tarpaulin sheets on the slope.
