Forest City On-Track, Following Approval of DEIA and EMP
Johor Bahru, 26 March 2015: Country Garden Holdings Ltd. and Esplanade Danga 88 Sdn. Bhd., the joint venture partners that formed Country Garden Pacificview (CGPV) to deliver the Forest City development project, today moved to issue clarification over the project’s status.
Datuk Othman, Executive Director of CGPV “Construction work on the Forest City project voluntarily ceased on 16 June 2014 in order for us to conduct, and get approvals from the Department of Environment (DoE), for the Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA) and Environmental Management Plan (EMP). Approval was granted in January 2015 and February 2015 respectively. Given that all necessary documents have been submitted and approved, the project has recommenced, is on track and does not expect any further cessation.”
“During the construction period, we will ensure that all environmental preservation, safety, health and environment related measures will be DoE compliant and implemented according to our EMP to minimise inconvenience to the community and environment. These measures include the installation of a double silt curtain and a daily water monitoring system to ensure no major or sustained anomalies were found in the water readings,” added Datuk Othman.
