GOMBAK, Dec 2 — Four more illegally built premises that posed high risk of causing pollution in Sungai Rawang will be demolished.

Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) president Shamsul Shahril Badliza Mohd Noor said an eviction notice was served to the premise owners and seizure of assets will be done if they failed to comply.

“Out of the eight premises identified along Sungai Rawang, we have demolished three heavy machinery storage and reparation workshops within one week.

“Aside from that, there is one premise built on a private land, we are giving the owner the chance to fulfil the technical requirements such as zoning or planning permission,” he said after inspecting the demolishment of a workshop near Taman Garing yesterday.

Also present was state executive councillor for local government Ng Sze Han.

On November 24, the authorities had demolished two heavy machinery storage and reparation workshops located just one metre away from Sungai Rawang.

Selangor Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari had previously said eight illegal premises along the river banks of Sungai Rawang will be demolished.

He said the premises involve six heavy machinery workshops and two recycling factories.
