Shop op­er­a­torS in com­mer­cial area de­priv­ing reS­i­dentS of park­ing bayS

New Straits Times - - News -

Shop op­er­a­tors in the Lem­bah Maju com­mer­cial area in Am­pang are de­priv­ing res­i­dents of park­ing spa­ces by re­serv­ing lots in front of their busi­ness premises.

Ten­ants who rent houses in the area claimed they had to pay RM30 monthly for their slots but park­ing bays are lim­ited be­cause shop op­er­a­tors re­serve their slots round-the­clock by plac­ing chairs or trash cans in them.

“Ev­ery time I come back from work, there are no park­ing spots left. This is un­fair as I have to pay the coun­cil monthly yet, it’s dif­fi­cult to get park­ing,” said a res­i­dent, who claimed she had to re­sort to park­ing her car by the road­side, il­le­gally.

“Res­i­dents have to risk get­ting fined by the au­thor­i­ties and I think this is un­fair. The Am­pang Jaya Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil has to take stern ac­tion against the shop op­er­a­tors.”
