Penang Institute : Failure in Urban Planning and Development Control

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 4:21 pm

Penang Institute is proud to host “Failure in Urban Planning & Development Control” which is scheduled as follows:


Date: 22 March 2019, Friday

Time: 8:00pm – 9:30pm (registration starts at 7:30pm)

Venue: Conference Hall, Penang Institute


Background to the Talk

According to the Deputy Director of the Human Development Report Office, UNDP, cities have been the main centres of learning, culture and innovation, therefore it is not surprising that the world’s most urban countries tend to be the richest and have the highest human development. However, rapid urbanisation is like a double-edged sword when urban planning and development control was done in a reactive manner. A comprehensive and balanced spatial planning, as well as a full review of development control, is deemed necessary to ensure that the urbanisation is benefiting the cities with the technology and effective spatial utilisation. Unfortunately, failure in urban planning and development control is prevalent in many cities and countries. The speaker will be sharing some consequences of failure in urban planning and development control from a global and local perspective.
