Previously known as Majlis Daerah Johor Bahru Tengah or Johor Bahru Tengah District Council until 2001

Majlis Perbandaran Johor Bahru Tengah or Johor Bahru Tengah Municipal Council (MPJBT) is a local authority which administrates Central Johor Bahru District and other areas of the Iskandar Malaysia area. This agency is under Johor state government. MPJBT are responsible for public health and sanitation, waste removal and management, town planning, environmental protection and building control, social and economic development and general maintenance functions of urban infrastructure. The MPJBT main headquarters is located at Skudai.

History

Formerly known as Majlis Daerah Johor Bahru Tengah (MDJBT) (Johor Bahru Tengah District Council). This agency was granted municipal status on 2001. At that time the total population within its jurisdiction was 535,000 and in 2008 is estimated to be well over 700,000 making it one of Malaysia's largest urban areas. In future it will continue to see rapid increases in population as many of the new development nodes of the Iskandar Malaysia region are located within or adjacent to its boundaries. It may well be bifurcated in future as regional centres like Skudai-Nusajaya and Tebrau-Plentong develop similar to how Subang Jaya was carved out of Petaling Jaya in the 90's.
