My Point

Unresolved for 2 years

‘What is the point of having a rule banning cats in HDB flats when enforcement is ineffective?’

MR WEE ENG LEONG: ‘My aged parents living in a Housing Board estate in St George’s Lane are at their wits’ end over the nuisance posed by cat poo along the corridor of their unit. Their complaints to the Housing Board branch office have come to naught. The HDB tells them to be patient and that action is being taken. But how patient are they supposed to be? The problem has remained unresolved for two years now. How long are my parents to live with the foul smell, day in day out, because of inconsiderate neighbours who let loose their cats? What is the point of having a rule banning cats in HDB flats when enforcement is ineffective? It makes a mockery of the rule.’


This shows that the BAN is INEFFECTIVE.

Please take advantage of this letter and write in to request for a removal of the BAN and replace it with regulations including FINING such irresponsible cat owners.!
