Residents in the area around Persiaran Kelicap and Solok Kelicap in Sungai Ara are anxiously awaiting an Appeals Board decision on a developer’s plan to build 14 fairly highrise blocks on hill-slopes, more than 250 feet above sea level.
White line – the 250 feet above sea level threshold

The developer had submitted a project plan, which was then approved around 2012.
The residents then filed their appeal.
Around this time, the developer submitted a detailed development plan for approval.
But as the residents had already filed their appeal, they requested the State Planning Committee to return the development plan to the developer, pending the appeal.
On 27 January, they will learn the outcome of their efforts to stop the project.
