Kampung Extension Scheme

Kampung Extension Scheme is the State Government’s initiative to overcome the overcrowding issues of traditional settlements in Sarawak since the Fourth Malaysia Plan (1981-1985). Through this scheme, the layout of the residential area is well planned and equipped with basic infrastructure and utilities such as roads, water supply and electricity. Furthermore, the Scheme is provided with components such as open space, government reserves, religious site, etc. in order to maintain the social characteristics and enhance the economic growth of the existing traditional settlement.

Service Centre

The needs of a service centre within a region is closely related to the continuity of planning carried out by the Regional Planning and Research Section in accordance with the structural plan produced by the Urban Design Section. The road network as proposed in the Structure Plan once constructed will become the catalyst to promote the development of a new Service Centre. Therefore, the planning activities such as siting application for government agencies, NGOs and development control can be carried out effectively.
