The Tanjung Bunga Residents Association has been thwarted in its legal challenge against the state government’s gazetting of Tanjung Bunga as a primary corridor for development instead of a secondary corridor.
TBRA had gone to the High Court this morning to see if the judge thought its lawsuit merited a full court hearing or if it was frivolous, in which case its suit would have been thrown out.
In the event, the suit was dismissed on technical grounds. Apparently the TBRA should have sought a judicial review within 40 days of the gazetting in 2007.
The TBRA has not yet decided whether to appeal. It also has to consider the legal costs in mounting a sustained challenge.
