A meeting between Majestic Heights and its Phase I buyers'
committee ended with the developer representatives walking out yesterday.
The latter had refused to discuss matters concerning physical
completion of the blocks.

The developer had allegedly said it would leave the problem to the
Housing Ministry and buyers.
The Ad-Hoc Committee for Taman Terubong Indah (Majestic Heights) Phase
1 Purchasers said physical work at the building site had stopped several
Committee vice-chairman Chang Seng Liang said the developer had
provided the committee with its work schedule which was supposed to be
implemented in mid-July.
"We have been tolerating them but till today there is no progress at
the site in Paya Terubong.
"Also, we found out the developer has not obtained clearance from many
agencies. To date the Penang Municipal Council has not received any
application for CF (Certificate of Fitness) from the developer," he added.
He said the developer should finish building the new Paya Terubong road
before buyers could move into their units.
"We fear that if the road construction begins after buyers have moved
in, it may pose a danger and cause dust and noise pollution to residents.
"The road is a critical part of the project," he added.
On July 26, the ad-hoc committee had filed a notice through their
lawyers to oppose the petition of winding-up filed by creditors of
Majestic Heights at the High Court here.
Chang said the committee had registered 545 of the 1,557 Phase 1 buyers
for legal representation.
He urged the rest of the buyers to come forward and give the committee
a strong mandate to resolve the problem.
