THE DEVELOPMENT CONTROL OF URBAN CENTRE IN KUALA LUMPUR
PLANNING MALAYSIA JOURNAL
The challenge in identifying the limit of the boundary of development growth in Kuala Lumpur is difficult. From the development control which creates the growth of Kuala Lumpur defines that, the allocation of development control for City Centre Commercial (CCC) development within the District Centre Commercial (DCC) development has resulted in different priorities and growth, unbalanced land use distribution within Kuala Lumpur, as well as creating the difference in the given plot ratio by the
... plot ratio by the authority for each centre according to its importance that resulted in the growth that focuses on the CCC area hence resulted in the difference in law enforcement in determining the distribution of floor space. The objective is to identify the urban growth pattern and to examine the influence of built up area to the development. Using the qualitative and quantitative method such as allocation of intensity development in defining the growth of an urban centre in Kuala Lumpur, the analysis is made to study the intensity, and the built-up area correlates to the floor space optimisation, total plot ratio, gross development value and the density requirement. The study is also to analyse the implementation of intensity development, zoning of land use, high-density development, and the correlative relation of development control with the growth centre. It also aims to establish land use management and physical development in Kuala Lumpur City Centre for sustainable urban growth and proper management of development control. The outcome of the study is shows hierarchy of the chosen 11 growth centres in Kuala Lumpur.
