Abstract

Currently smart and sustainable initiatives in housing are being highlighted by government and communities alike in many countries. In Malaysia, present legislations relating to inhabitation is more focused on physical development of housing, while aspects such as social and cultural matters are often not considered. Public policies or strategies in housing mainly deal with affordability rather than sustainable inhabitation. A study of these policy matters reveals that they provide little room for housing intervention in response to the emerging sustainability concerns.
