KUCHING, June 4: Many registered land purchasers have not received land titles from the defunct developer of Borneo Highlands Resort.

According to Borneo Highlands Residents Club (BHRC) in a press statement, it has worked to resolve the issues since the club’s inception and will continue to pursue what residents are entitled to under the Sales and Purchase Agreement.

As a collective body, the club would be able to help to provide the necessary information in the pursuit for the alienation of the land.

It also stated that registered land purchasers who are not members but would like to join the club should contact Secretary Ar Liew Nam Boon at 019-8864126 or email 2022bhrc@gmail.com.

“BHRC was registered with the Registrar of Societies one year ago, and one of the club’s primary goals is to protect the rights and interests of residents and property owners.

“The club is playing a pivotal role in fostering relationships between the government agencies and the residents,” it added.

According to BHRC, after the developer closed the resort about three years ago, the residents have been dealing with issues such as water and electricity supply, road maintenance, and residential security.

“BHRC has embarked on resolving these issues from the day of its formation and also will continue to pursue what the residents are entitled to in accordance with the Sales and Purchase Agreement,” the club said.

Meanwhile, BHRC celebrated its first anniversary on June 1, 2023, at the Borneo Highlands Resort Clubhouse here.

“In conjunction with the celebration, BHRC in collaboration with Borneo Glamping held a Glamping Festival, providing accommodation facilities to our members and their guests and friends,” BHRC said.

In his welcoming remarks, BHRC chairman Lo Khere Chiang, who is also Batu Kitang assemblyman, emphasised that BHRC will promote Borneo Highlands as an important tourist destination locally and globally.

“The success of holding the BHRC anniversary celebration at Borneo Highlands is a testament of the attraction of the resort.

“The three-day, two-night Glamping Festival drew about 300 people of all races, mostly young people from all walks of life.

“We learned from casual conversations with some of them that Borneo Highlands is an ideal location for glamping/camping because of its pristine environment, which includes a cool climate, fresh clean air, and secure and scenic surroundings,” Lo said. — DayakDaily
