Respect others’ rights where public space is concerned, PPR residents told

18 February, KOTA TINGGI – People’s Housing Project (PPR) residents have been advised to be responsible in respecting the rights of others by not misusing public spaces.

Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Deputy Minister Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique said the residents or owners of PPRs should, among others, refrain from throwing unused chairs or unnecessary items that could lead to casualties.

“Be a responsible occupant, respect the rights of others and use the existing space that is your right instead of restricting public space to your own use, unless there is a general agreement with the residents.

“Do not make your own decision without thinking about the safety and comfort of others,” she told reporters after attending the ‘Jualan Sentuhan Rakyat’ programme in Bandar Tenggara here today.

Halimah, who is also Tenggara MP said this when asked to comment on news reports involving some residents who used corridors and staircases of PPR and public housing flats as storage spaces for various items.
