Formerly known as Majlis Perbandaran Johor Bahru Tengah or Johor Bahru Central Municipal Council with the establishment of 8 Local Councils during the 60s which was under the Town Board Enactment 118. Due to the residents’ growth and increase in asset, on March 1, 1978 Johor Bahru Tengah Municipal was formed under the Local Government Act 1976 (Act 171) that covered areas of 104.7 km2 with total residents of 150,000 people. This agency was granted municipal status in 1995.[1]

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.[citation needed] 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 90s.[citation needed]
