Standards have fallen over the past 18 months in Glenmarie Cove.
Renovations to my house were carried out in the April 2011 – June 2011 period and I can remember how strict Security was when they came to dealing with debris and the hoarding around my property’s perimeter. My contractor was threatened with eviction if the ‘blue & white’ plastic liner that I used (cheap lah) became excessively torn and was not replaced. On one occasion, they were more picky than usual because ‘someone big’ was coming to visit on a Saturday and all debris were cleared in an effort to impress whoever the biggie was. I even drove 33 km just to clear some styrofoam lunch boxes that the wind had blown over the place (or the crows did it!) because my neighbour had phoned me to complain and he was upset! I swore as I drove that I will taruk my contactor properly.
That was then and I was happy that I’m going to live in a place where people cared about the surroundings. There was a new general manager and I thought things were looking up.
Alas, times have changed and I post these pictures to show the ‘new normal’ that the new broom(s) have brought us. And these pictures are only about renovations and constructions. Owners responsible for these conditions are not called to order because the developer is not doing their job, despite the authority implicit in the Deed of Mutual Covenants. The work is too hard, I guess. The look of the surroundings are apparently no longer important. It is okay for residents to drive by these sights daily.
We need to press for a regime change and that means going to the board of DRB-Hicom, legally or otherwise. Email the blog if you have pictures to share. Add your comments so we can compile a complete dossier of things gone wrong. Senangin Pier, poor lighting in P2, faulty access readers and the crooked ramp will be included, just to name a few.
