Changing KajangThe main idea to develop this city is try changing the town centre to Cultural Districts, Heritage Areas and Tourism, urban designers, developers and planners create new economic value for historic places and the inner city.
GREEN BUILDING INDEX The Green Building Index, developed by Pertubuhan Akitek Malaysia (PAM) and the Association of Consulting Engineers Malaysia (ACEM) is a rating system that provides guidelines for developers for designing and constructing green buildings. GBI (Green Building Index) comprises of 6 key criteria as: Energy Efficiency, Indoor Environmental Quality, Sustainable Site Planning and Management, Material and Resources, Water Efficiency, and Innovation
Green Pass Green Performance Assessment System In Construction (Green Pass) is designed to meet this need through a standard conformance that promoted sustainable construction in an integrated manner with other Construction Industry Standards (CIS). This standard is based on minimum requirements for buildings and systems using performance-related provisions and complements existing standards to form a comprehensive assessment system for green building construction.
Water Quality The quality of kajang water is influenced greatly by human development. Acid rain is a common problem. The expanse of hard impermeable surfaces in cities results in large bodies of rainwater requiring collection and discharge elsewhere. Dust, dirt and other solid pollutants are washed with rainwater into drains, the water sometimes discharged untreated into local waterways. Drinking water from local waterways often requires treatment with chemicals to combat bacteria and other micro- organisms from such pollution.
Air QualityGenerally the air quality in Kajang centre is quite good. The main source of the pollution comes from the traffic congestion .Therefore, to reduce the pollution of the air should be decreasing the number of vehicles going to city and this can be done by motivate the people to use public transport .
Social life There is a need to maximize public access to open spaces and other natural areas due to their importance for informal recreation. Health should not be adversely affected by pollution or by detrimental impacts on quality of life. Protecting the nature conservation interests of designated areas is required, so development should not pollute the natural environment as dependent on Local Agenda 21.
NoiseThe road noise , rail, air traffic and some industrially related activities provide the main sources of noise pollution in Kajang .Reconstruct industrial areas far from residential places and ban the noisy old vehicle are essential solutions.
Improving Residential AreasThe city needs to expand and construct more residential areas as the number of residents is progressively increasing.Some towns such as, Bandar Baru Bangi is quietly improved and new Kajang 2 still under construction which contribute on the developmental sustainability.
Construct commercial districtsNew commercial districts will be develop up the city , as the city has limited marketing regions , the new commercial districts will grow up the development sustainability.City center also have to expand and built up commercial zones close to different residential areas.Privatization could be applied to share the responsibility and developments.

Parking LotProvides parking at as low a level as possible, having regard to the needs of the development, also provide cycle parking.Facilities getting to the station by using public transport.
Sustainable Transport All development is genuinely accessible by all modes of travel. It requires that all development: Is integrated into the transport network to provide for easy access by walking, cycling and public transport. Funds improvements to transport networks where travel generated by the development cannot be accommodated by the current infrastructure.
Construct Kajang CentralConstruct kajang central to connect Kajang with the other cities through rail transport systems include KTM station , Bus station, LRT station and Offices.Kajang central might have commercial and official places such as markets and conference halls .
