Abstract

This paper is produced from an initial background of a research and based on the outlined objectives: I) to assess the principles of planning law and land law systems in Malaysia as an instrument for sustainable development. II) to identify the shortcomings in the use of present legislative framework and approaches between Town and Country Planning Act 1976 and National Land Code 1965. The paper is purely based on literature review and the current understanding of the regulatory framework with further identification on key problems and conflicts that involved between both laws.
