A neighbourhood is more than just a shelter; it is a place that can be developed into a society that is moral and has its own identity. Living in a certain environment can profoundly impact our mental and especially physical well-being. Low-income areas are often plagued by health problems. It is still unjust that the rich continue to be favored over the poor, despite the inextricable link between money and health. Health inequities are a term used to describe this. It is the purpose of this study to evaluate the built environment to find out if it encourages residents of Rumah Pangsa, Jalan Pantai Batu Pahat, to engage in physical activity. As a result, this study has three main objectives focused on examining the built environment and physical activities (jogging) in housing neighborhoods, identifying factors impacting built environments and physical activities (jogging) towards human health, and finally recommending the elements of built environment on housing neighborhoods. Through questionnaires, pedestrian safety, connectivity, and the environment in the surrounding area are surveyed. The data collected in this study are all quantitative data. There are 34 respondents selected by simple random method in this study. The survey was conducted on 29th May 2021. As a result of the findings of the study, 83% of respondents surveyed are extremely satisfied with the design of pedestrian walkways. There are 70.6% more respondents who say the environment is uncomfortable than those who agree. Most respondents who felt the least comfortable performing physical activities were female, with a total of 15 respondents, whereas most male respondents felt comfortable performing physical activities around their neighborhood. In this study, a few recommendations are made to improve the issues, such as zebra crossings, street lighting, and upgrading the pedestrian walkway. Last but not least, it is essential to keep people aware of their environment, since those things can definitely have an effect on their physical and mental wellbeing.
