CPDO LogoThe City Planning and Development Office plays a significant role in the practice of spatial and development planning which are crucial in guiding the development of the City. With the increasing concerns on the effects of uncontrolled urbanization and climate change, the CPDO continues to formulate plans that would address pressing issues such as sustainable development, environmental protection and social equity. Since development planning is concerned with the five sectors of society, the CPDO employed professionals from various disciplines to enable the office to respond to multidisciplinary tasks.
