Initially, the Town Planning and Project Development Division was only known as the Town Planning Division. In line with the dissolution of KEJORA JKR Unit in year 1998, the KEJORA Managment took-charge of functions and duties of the KEJORA JKR Unit.
Hence, through the restructuring of KEJORA Management, this division was renamed as Bahagian Perancang Bandar Dan Pembangunan Projek (Town Planning And Project Development Division) in the year 2000. The restructuring process only changed the name of the division but did not add/restructure the division personnel. The proposed restructuring of division personnel have been submitted to the Board of Director in 2003 by considering the addition of technical personnel especially for Engineer and a Quantity Surveyor.
To accomodate issues on the burden of technical duties and lack of technical staff, this division practiced the approach which was agreed to by the management in conducting of development projects.
However, through the second restructuring of KEJORA Management on 1 May 2011, this division was distributed to a new unit/division, Bahagian Perancang Bandar Dan Desa (Town And Country Planning Division) and also the Unit Teknikal (Technical Unit) which was both placed under the responsibility of the Deputy General Manager (Development).
This is to coordinate tasks in order to make way for distribution according to their respective field of expertise, whereby the Technical Unit specialises in the technical field.
