Abstract

In many respects, the City of Johor Baharu represents an urban area in which several of the panaceas of contemporary town planning theory have been tested and successfully implemented. Although urban poverty has not been fully eradicated, planners and policy-makers have continued to experiment with textbook prescriptions on service hierarchies, public housing and integrated transport to control urbanization pressures and channel growth, according to a planned spatial distribution of land-use activities. There are obviously numerous economic and environmental benefits. This paper has been inspired by a similar research which traces the morphology of development plans within a physical planning regime in the Singapore Republic. Due to the City's linkages in terms of physical location and development, a study carried out locally would help to guide similar long-term development towards the achievement of specific planning goals and also to monitor its impact on property development in and around the City areas
