Abstract

Malaysia, a fast growing developing country is now facing the issue of inadequate urban spaces for future development, which leads to the need to redevelop the brownfield, particularly ex-landfills. A total of 296 ex-landfills have been planned to undergo redevelopment by the year 2020. Although there is a policy for ex-landfill development, a question arises if the policy reflects the needs of the society as the end-recipient that determines the success of the planned development. Therefore, this study was carried out to assess what the community has in mind as a way to identify the community needs in ensuring the success of the future development of ex-landfill. Based on the objectives to identify the perceptions of the community on (i) ex-landfill issues, (ii) the appropriate type of re-development for the ex-landfills, and (iii) the function of the public park in ex-landfills, which have been the main priority of the development type considered by the government, this study produced a priority ranking result that could assist the urban administrator or specifically the Local Authorities in Malaysia to plan an effective and an acceptable development of the ex-landfill for the benefits of current and future communities.
