If any land is used in contravention of Section 20, criminal prosecution can be instituted against the owner and if convicted, he or she can be fined up to RM500,000, sent to prison for up to two years, or both.
Under Section 70 of the Street, Drainage and Buildings Act 1974, no one is allowed to erect any building unless he has obtained the prior written permission of the relevant local authority.
Under Section 70A, no one is allowed to carry out any earthworks unless he has submitted plans and specifications of such earthworks to the local authority.
If there are buildings or structures that have been erected without prior written permission of the relevant local authority, Section 72 empowers the authority to direct the owner to demolish or remove such unauthorised buildings or structures.
