27 March - Area Character Statement in Development Control Planning


Nazri Noordin is the Managing Director of Iktisas Planners Sdn Bhd, with over 30 years of experience specializing in the fields of urban planning, urban design and conservation planning, and environmental consultancy. He graduated with a Dip. TRP (ITM, 1983), B.URP and M.URP (both from Illinois, 1986 and 1988 respectively). He is the Immediate Past President of the Malaysian Institute of Planners (2013-2017) and most recently, he led the team which won the 2018 MIP Award for Planning Excellence (Category: Heritage & Conservation) for the Iskandar Malaysia Area Character Statement (IMACS).


TPr Nazri will outline the approach used in the Area Character Statement and how the IMACS study sought to define the character of the place by identifying the history, nature and culture which shaped southern Johor. This approach expands on the traditional approach of Development Control Planning which focuses on applying generic physical planning controls to one which integrates the character and heritage of the place with spatial and development planning.
