Sustainable development has become an important aspect in the local governments’ planning development for the last 20 years. There are many ways sustainability elements can be incorporated in the design, construction, operation and deconstruction of buildings. Hence, the knowledge towards sustainable development should be first acquired and understood. Importantly sustainability represents the link between society and built environment professionals. In this study, the focus is aimed at the role of the Local Governments and how they play their roles towards sustainable development. Therefore, this study involved distributing questionnaire to 55 Local Governments. The result shows that Local Governments’ staffs need better understanding and awareness in Sustainable Development in terms of acquiring knowledge towards sustainable development. This study is to contribute to the enrichment of knowledge transfer practices on the role of Local Governments in Sustainable Development. Therefore, this research shows that sustainable development is low in percentage of being practiced.
