The public has been urged to practise their rights as citizens by submitting their feedback and opinions on the Tanjung Aru Eco Development (TAED) project by today, February 10. WWF-Malaysia Executive-Director Dato' Dr Dionysius Sharma said if they failed, any opportunity for further comments on the subject will be closed.
"All is not lost just yet for those who have misgivings about the massive development," he said.
Mayor Datuk Yeo Boon Hai reminds the public that comments and feedback on the project are still welcome via objection/comment forms at the City Hall until Feb 10. The project and the reports can still be viewed at Meeting Room 2 of City Hall.
"As an organisation that works to promote harmony between human beings and nature for four decades, WWF-Malaysia is very concerned in ensuring public interests are heard and prioritised in the development of Tanjung Aru beach.
"We, therefore, would like to applaud the Environmental Protection Department as well as City Hall for facilitating this process of obtaining feedback from the public which is in line with our practice of seeking dialogue with all stakeholders," he said.
