The sustainable environment is being debated as an important measure due to degradation of global environment and consent for our future generation. The land use development for neighbourhood construction need to be protected from being overused and devastated. Malaysia should have very focused sustainable neighbourhood planning and design so that the future generation can be benefited from this type development. The main concern of this study is to address the adaptation of Sustainable Neighbourhood Elements (SNEs) in neighbourhood planning and design in Malaysia as it gives much impact to the living environment of a group of community. The issues pertaining sustainable neighbourhood design and planning in Malaysia were also discussed. Sustainable Neighbourhood Elements (SNEs) were developed to assist planners and stakeholders involved in the planning process and can be manipulated based on the current need. This is to make the planning process more transparent and explicit, aiding participation, reducing the apparent uncertainty of the system and potentially making planning and design process more efficient.
