Know Your Councillor: Lau Weng Chan

Published: Fri, 30 Nov 2012

SEPANG: Getting a police station built in the Kota Warisan locality is among the top priorities of Sepang municipal councillor Lau Weng Chan.

“Residents don’t feel safe living here and they are always worried for their safety without a proper police station in the area,” she said.

The businesswoman in her 50s had highlighted this to the Sepang district police headquarters since her appointment as councillor in 2008 but nothing has been done yet.

“They told me they’ve no budget to rent a shoplot for their operations but they do have police officers patrolling the area,” she said.

The mother of four said this was not enough as residents still do not feel safe without the presence of a proper police station in their neighbourhood.

Lau pointed out that there will be at least a few cases of house break-ins every two to three months and residents are starting to feel anxious.

Currently, members of the Kota Warisan Residents’ Association (RA) are working on a plan to purchase a shipping container to be used as a police base, in replacement of a proper police station.

“The police and residents cannot afford anything more due to budget constraints so the container would be the best temporary solution.

“Once the structure is here, about four police officers will be sent over from the Sepang police district headquarters,” she said.

Lau is also working together with the Sepang Municipal Council (MP Sepang) to ensure future

developers in the area allocate land and build a police station for the community.

The council’s planning director will be working together with the developers to identify a suitable plot of land for the police station.

In addition, Lau is also pushing for a secondary and Islamic religious school to be built in the neighbourhood.

“There are about 5,000 homes here on this 600-acre piece of development but there is only one primary school,” she said.

Residents would have to send their children to other neighbouring schools, with the nearest secondary school in Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi.

Also, she is pushing for a government health clinic to be built in the area.

“There are only private clinics here and it’s about time we have a government clinic for the residents.”

Apart from the lack of public amenities, Lau also has to deal with complaints on landscape maintenance along with the occasional pothole and road maintenance grouses.
