Abstract

One of the main tasks of a town planner in Malaysia is to prepare a Development Proposal Report (DPR) to be submitted together with the layout plan to get planning permission from the local planning authority (LPA). Incorporation of flood risk reduction aspects in site planning in the DPR is important to allow the LPA to make good and effective planning decisions. This study examines town planners' perception on information quality for the incorporation of flood risk reduction in site planning in the context of five town planning reference instruments, namely the Town and Country Planning Act 1976, Selayang Municipal Council Local Plan 2020, Town and Country Planning Department Planning Guidelines, Selangor Manual and Planning Guidelines 2nd Edition and DPR Manual 2nd Edition that assist them to prepare the DPR for obtaining planning permission from Selayang Municipal Council, Selangor, Malaysia, where the study was carried out. The findings show that there is a need to improve existing town planning reference instruments and access to information to generally enhance town planners planning activities and specifically improve DPR quality in the future.
