Community Objection of Park Fencing in Al Furjan Villas
We, the residents of Al Furjan Villas (including owners and tenants), would like to lodge our objection to the proposal to erect additional fences through the parks in the Al Furjan Community.
Having seen the contractor setting out and materials proposed of the fences in Zone A. It is clear that these fences are obtrusive, are being built with no regard to their visual appearance or quality from what appears to be the remaining fencing from the perimeter. They will also serve no beneficial use in promoting safety. Moreover, it is unreasonable that the fences are higher than the garden wall of all the villas and all residents around the park and the overall visual appearance of the community will be severely impacted.
There was no consultation with the residents of Al Furjan Villas on this matter and the residents only found out about the fence when the work has started.
We would also like to request that in lieu of these proposed fences a sensible series of traffic calming measures and proper road crossings are installed adjacent to all parks to reduce the speed of passing traffic and that the planting that was designed as a screen is allowed to grow to a height the affords the privacy intended.
It is also of a matter concern that the contractor responsible for the erecting of these fences is not working in a safe manner. To leave concrete blocks in a children's play unattended for a number of days is a serious neglect of safety. It was witnessed on two evening’s, children playing on these concrete foundations. If these foundations had fallen onto a child or a child had fallen from them and hit their head there would have been a serious incident.
We would like to request a meeting with the Nakheel management to discuss the issue as soon as possible and would appreciate if all work is suspended until an agreement has been reached.
Thanks & Regards,
Al Furjan Villas Residents
