The role of rural service centers currently is very important in rural areas as the focal point for economic activities, agricultural output hub and facilities center. However, the level of availability of the service center to cater to the needs of the local and surrounding area are interesting to research. Through initiatives and strategic planning from local authorities, the level of rural areas availability mainly in service centers should be good and sustainable. Thus the level of availability of several rural service centers in the Malaysia Special Tourism Zone (through the Malaysia National Physical Plan 2) would be assessed. This level of availability includes study area development progress between local development plans within a predetermined plan (approximately 5-10 years). Both of these aspects will be assessed based on secondary information (Local District Plan and Corridor Development Plan) and field observation conducted. In addition, the developments of service centers (base on function) are recorded and Hotspot Method and Location Confident Method to analyze the level of urban development and as a measure of the level of availability to meet the needs of the future. Sustainable service center development in line with the local plan should ensure the availability of the facilities and infrastructure to meet the needs of the future.
