KUCHIING, May 30: The Ministry of Public Health, Housing and Local Government Sarawak has intervened to oversee and ensure the completion of the Taman Landeh Heights 2 housing project in Siburan, which has experienced delays of over three years.

Developed by Mahsaf Jaya Sdn Bhd (MJSB), the housing project comprising 18 units of single-storey terrace houses and 39 units of double-storey terrace houses, was initially scheduled for completion in 2021.


Deputy Minister of Public Health and Housing, Datuk Michael Tiang, after inspecting the site and meeting with stakeholders today, urged the developer to adhere to all requirements and demonstrate full commitment to successfully finish the project.

“We will closely monitor the project’s progress and engage with MJSB to ensure the project can be completed and handover to the purchasers,” he said in a statement today.

Tiang had today met with all the stakeholders, including the developer, landowners, Padawan Municipal Council (MPP), and house purchasers.

He also sought the cooperation of all government agencies to provide necessary assistance and support to ensure the project’s completion.

It was reported that MPP chairman Tan Kai had stated that the delay in issuing occupation permits (OPs) for Landeh Heights Phase 2 stemmed from the developer’s failure to address some unsatisfactory work on the project.

Raising the issue on March 28, Pending assemblywoman Violet Yong highlighted that some 30 house buyers have been waiting for years to take possession of their homes, facing frustration from having to keep renting accommodation on top of servicing bank interest for house financing. — DayakDaily
