The global pace of urbanisation is increasing rapidly. Nevertheless, without considering the pillars of sustainability, such rapid urbanisation might be a negative force for development. The goal of urban development is sustainability, ensuring that a state of ongoing development. Malaysia is dedicated to supporting and implementing the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030. The aim of this study is to explore the integration of the sustainable urban development pillars—social development, economic development and environmental protection—with respect to the current Malaysian plan. This study employs a qualitative approach, using content analysis to evaluate the 11th Malaysian Plan (MP11) against the themes and subthemes and indicators of the City Prosperity Index (CPI). The CPI is a powerful tool for measuring city sustainability, helping countries and cities to identify, quantify, evaluate, monitor and report on progress made toward achieving Sustainable Development Goal 11 (SDG 11) and one compliance with the New Urban Agenda (NUA).
