Development control is the major factor that contributes to the growth of urban centres in Kuala Lumpur City Centre. This paper focuses on the development control in urban centres that faces the challenge of identifying the limit of the development growth’s boundary. The scope is identifying the growth rank in Kuala Lumpur prior to the existing physical development. This study is aimed at the function of development control in measuring the ranking of the growth centres in Kuala Lumpur. This has resulted in the ranking of 11 growth centres chosen for this study in Kuala Lumpur. The objectives of this study are to identify the growth level from the urban centre’s location and to examine the influence of tools of development control such as built up area towards the development growth. The study uses the qualitative and quantitative methods such as allocation of development intensity in defining the growth of an urban centre in Kuala Lumpur. The study analyses the land use, built-up area, floor space optimisation, total plot ratio, gross development value, and density requirements to find the implementation of intensity of development, zoning of land use, high-density development, and the correlative relation of development control with the growth centre. This study is anticipated to enhance the establishment of land use management and physical development in Kuala Lumpur City Centre for sustainable urban growth and proper management of development control.
