The present system concerning planning approval involves granting of planning permission or rejection for development by the local planning authority of an area. The process, as a means of development control, requires that certain planning application be accompanied by a development proposal report which include a written statement and plan that describes the present condition of the land to which the application relates; and the proposed development, in particular on how it would have an effect on the environment. As the proposed development needs to be properly evaluated by the relevant decision making body, and thus necessitates involvement of various stages as well as approving agencies, a shift from the conventional working procedures to a computerised system environment is essential to be able to provide appropriate information for the purpose, apart from facilitate and enhance routine planning and development control processes. This paper will discuss the computerised planning approval system developed for City Hall of Kuala Lumpur (CHKL) to enhance the overall process of planning and building approval, while at the same time support strategic planning and rational decision making
