Workshop On "New Requirements on ESCP & Stormwater Management in the Second Edition of MSMA- Property Development in Environmentally Sensitive Areas."

We are pleased to announce the following workshop:

Workshop on "New Requirements on ESCP & Stormwater Management in the Second Edition of MSMA-Property Development in Environmentally Sensitive Areas."

Date: 18-20 November, 2013 (3 days)
Time: 8.30 AM - 6.00 PM
Venue: C & S Lecturer Room, IEM, Petaling Jaya.

Key Topics Covered:
1. Strategic Development Layout Planning and Land Conversion.
2. Geological Terrain Mapping.
3. Geotechnical and Soil Erosion Assessment.
4. Erosion Risk Mapping.
5. Erosion and Sediment Control Planning.
6. Landslide Hazard Zonation Mapping.
7. Environmental Impact Assessment.
8. Drainage and Stormwater Management.
9. Solid Waste and Wastewater Management.
10. Environmental Management Planning.
11. Early Warning System Application.

Synopsis:

Property development in environmentally sensitive areas (ESA), particularly in the highlands and hillslopes, has been mushrooming since 1980s in Malaysia.

However, Malaysia has bitter memories of the Highlands Tower landslide tragedy in 1993, and the latest landslide tragedies at Ulu Yam Perdana, Hulu Selangor and at Bukit Antarabangsa where many lives have been lost and property damaged.

Such tragedies will certainly persist and worsen unless proper planning and management of land utilization is adopted at the early stage of any proposed property development in these areas.

In these three days we will be looking at various approaches of development control in environmentally sensitive areas.

Based on the approaches adopted for development control in these areas, various challenges will be faced, such as limited usage of land due to the nature of the terrain, difficulties in construction and also the management of risks/hazards involved.

With specific approaches taken for development control, it would be beneficial to the industry in moving a step closer towards a better understanding of land development issues and its after-effects in this country, thus ensuring that a more sound and sustainable development could be carried out in future.

Key Benefits of Attending This Program:

1. Providing hands-on information on development planning and control in ESA.
2. Understanding of specific requirements so that budget allocation could be provided to secure planning approvals.
3. Equipping property investors with adequate knowledge in selection of the right piece of property for investment in ESA as well as development potential.
4. Equipping property developers with know-how techniques to manage and successfully undertake such developments.
5. Equipping other professionals (i.e. architects, planners, engineers, contractors, risk management insurers) involved in land and property development on development control practices in ESA.
6. Acquiring better planning knowledge in minimizing risks of landslides, soil erosion and flooding issues within ESA.

Speakers:
Ir. Dr. Tew Kia Hui and Ir. Dr. Quek Keng Hong.
