This book provides an overview of the development of Malaysia in general and of its planning system. A study of Malaysia is critical as this book highlights the challenges in planning theory and practice, opening up critical reflections of planning experiences in response to its particular context. Further, this book provides an overview of the complex relations between governance, society, and de facto market structures that influence governance conduct and examines how planning has been adopted and contextualised under the dominance of neoliberal ideology. Thus, the book concludes by unveiling the planners' role and identifying the effectiveness of Malaysia's planning system's public participation process, so that opportunities for local democracy can be identified.
