The lacks of infrastructure become the major concerns of many Local Authorities (LAs) and this has resulted in inability of the LA to be a developmental government. Therefore, the adequate provision of infrastructure facilities is critical for the sustainability of local development.However, due to rising costs in providing infrastructure, there is a tendency for shift from public to private sector provision.The variety in mechanisms used to acquire contributions from private sector is a reflection of the institutional framework which enables to operate more possible in planning system.The study has identified that, although both private and LA have a good understanding of the fundamental of concept of local infrastructure provision and the arguments for and against the use of private provision, there are still considerable areas of uncertainty surrounding the precise definition (as prescribed in the relevant legislations) and measurements of the key elements pertaining to local infrastructure.The negotiating process plays a significant method available for LAs to acquire local infrastructure.The nature of process and the effectiveness of the methods also might be varies in different circumstances.Therefore, this needs further investigation and reviews to detail how the framework of negotiations should be outlined and the structure of how the method can be applied in various LAs regardless of geographical features.The study proposes that the future trend of planning control (planning approval) should emphasize more on de-regulation and promotional aspects rather than a negative system of control for the sake of control alone.
