Open the back Staircase at The Heights Residence for the residents. Don't victimize us

The Majlis Perbandaran Hang Tuah Jaya (MPHTJ), Melaka has issued a letter to permanently close the back staircase at The Heights Residence. This is causing a major access issue for allowing us to:

  1. Walk to and fro Multimedia University
  2. Walk to and fro to nearby shops, bus stops and amenities
  3. Have an Emergency Exit for residents in case of emergencies such as fire

This access issue is causing us:

  1. To walk 4.6KM up and down a steep hill to and from MMU / nearby amenities as opposed to using the back staircase, will only take 5 min.
  2. The Unnecessary additional monetary burden to those of us who need to go to and from the university or amenities
  3. Grief as we are unfairly treated as compared to the condominiums nearby such as University Green and Pangsapuri Bukit Beruang Permai whose back staircases are opened for use by their residents
  4. Concern for the Safety of certain individuals who climb over the wall or fence to gain access to the University / Amenities to use it as a 'short-cut'
  5. To worry about unnecessary congestion in the nearby Taman as students will need to drive to the University which may result in increased traffic and indiscriminate roadside parking in the Taman. The residents of the Taman may face unnecessary traffic delays going and coming home from their daily routine.
  6. Additional Unnecessary psychological and emotional stress and worry on their transportation to the University among the students as there are times when the drivers from the Transport Booking Platform cancels the booking last minutes or don't show up which makes the students late for classes and exams which has major repercussions in their lives
  7. Difficulties for visitors or guests of The Heights Residence who need to use the back staircase to walk to the nearest Surau in MMU to perform their prayers

We love to to live at The Heights as there is very good guarded and secured condominium which has also many facilities that we can use such as the Swimming Pool, Gym, Sauna, Library, BBQ, Cafe and a Reception. The Heights is also one of the few places in Ayer Keroh which has access to high speed broadband.

We want MPHTJ to allow us to open the back staircase in order for us to have a more convenient and better living environment with access to MMU and nearby amenities and also to be treated equally as the other condominium and apartment nearby.
