Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Mahadi Che Ngah today described the contributions of town planners as extremely significant and meaningful in making Kuala Lumpur a progressive and prosperous city for all.
He said the rapid development taking place in the city should be properly governed based on the plans made prepared by certified town planners.
“The agile planning approach should be adopted by town planners in drafting the development plan. In Kuala Lumpur, the development plan had been gazetted as the Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2020 (KLSP2020) and the Kuala Lumpur City Plan 2020 (KLCP2020).
“The implementation of the statutory development plan is very challenging and requires the service of certified town planners,” he said in a video message in conjunction with the centennial celebration of the Town Planning Profession in Malaysia posted on the official PLANMalaysia’s Facebook page today.
Mahadi said the development plan should also be prepared quickly so as not to slow down or deter the physical development and economic growth of Kuala Lumpur.
