High-End Chalets in Pantai Hill Operates on Agriculture Land Without Approval

The state government wants to know how “exclusive chalets” near here have been allowed to operate “for more than a decade” without approvals. According to a report by The Star, the properties are located in a 100-acre land of Pantai Hills.


"Our probe also shows that the status of the land where the chalets are built remains as agriculture and this is wrong."

"We are worried as some of the structures are built along slopes and this may pose a hazard to the residents including foreign tourists who rent them," Negeri Sembilan Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun told the media.

The high-end chalets numbering less than 100 are individually owned.

Aminuddin said some of the chalets are supposed to be used as “jungle or spiritual retreats” and were rented out during the holidays from “RM200 to RM2,000 a night depending on the season”.

"I must say that some of the chalets I visited were really impressive."

"But what makes me wonder is how they have been able to operate all these years without getting the necessary approvals.".

Aminuddin also said that a committee headed by state Housing and Local Government, Urban Wellbeing and new villages chairman Teo Kok Seong will investigate the chalets.
