What is Urban Transformation Centre? Simple answer – it is a one-stop centre that brings together multiple government and private agencies under one roof for the convenience of the public.

Urban Transformation Centre

UTC Perak

The third and largest UTC after Malacca and Kuala Lumpur, UTC Perak, is located in the building of Ipoh Central Market, and occupying the floors formerly tenanted by Super Kinta Department Store. Although UTC Perak was opened to the public on 2nd Jan, 2013, this one-stop centre was only fully operational one week later. It was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak on 15th Feb, 2013.

So, what can you do here at UTC Perak? Pay bills, apply or renew passport and have your teeth checked at the 1 Malaysia Dental Clinic, just to name a few errands. Or maybe just lepak at the library. After all, this is where you can get centralised government and private sector services.

I love that UTC Perak provides free (and fast) WiFi access to visitors. Of course, there is room for improvement and from my observation during my visits last month, three immediate issues that should be addressed are demarcation in the car park, signboards leading to UTC Perak from the wet market and public resting areas within UTC Perak.
