1Malaysia greetings / Greetings of peace from Perak
Welcome to the official website of the Perak Darul Ridzuan
Department of Town and Country Planning.
This official website was set up based on the awareness that a
website is an essential medium for the dissemination of
information and communication for an organisation and its clients.
I hope that you will thereby be able to learn about the functions and services
of this department in particular and the field of town and country planning in general.
In planning any development, the views of the public must be taken into
consideration to ensure that the development planned is in line with
the needs and aspirations of the people.
The Town and Country Planning Act 1976 (Act 172) provides the public with the
right to jointly participate in the development planning preparations by the local authorities
or in their own localities.
The peoplecentric approach coincides with the aspirations and goals of 1 Malaysia,
people first, performance now, emphasised by the Prime Minister.
This department in its commitment to every citizen has constantly fulfilled
its role and responsibilities to ensure that all state planning achieves
the performance targets set. It is also constantly committed to improving its
work processes to be in line with current demands, i.e. reduced
red-tape and bureaucracy. The department is also aware of the state-of-the-art ICT and has integrated it in its work processes such as the use
of geographical information systems in planning and decision-making. All these have been implemented in order to guarantee the process
of constant best service delivery by the department to each and every client.
