URA approves latest masterplan upon evaluating proposals

A master plan for Singapore’s urban development over the next 10-15 years was officially launched on Wednesday.

The authority announced in a similar statement that, under the gazetted Urban Redevelopment Authority 2019 Master Plan, the former Railway Station Staff Quarters as well as the Bukit Tiam Fire Station were also gazetted to be conserved.

The gazette ends the review of the Draft Master Plan 2019 that was displayed in the URA’s offices from March to July this year.

In order to reach more residents, regional maps were also displayed in July and August at Waterway Point (formerly Westgate), Our Tampines Hub (formerly Junction 8), Causeway Point (formerly Causeway Point), Westgate, Junction 8 and Waterway Point.

In this period, more than 25,000 stakeholders visited the exhibit to learn about the proposals. Around 6,000 visitors signed up for tours with URA volunteers.

URA has said that in the past few decades, it has engaged with stakeholders such as residents, community groups, professional institutes, and grassroots leaders.

The authority noted that stakeholder feedback during these sessions had helped to refine original plans, particularly for Kallang River District, Jurong Lake District and Farrer Park.

URA said that the feedback it received from stakeholders via focus groups, dialogues, workshops and briefings as well as exhibitions has helped to shape its draft plans.

The plans were refined and then displayed as part of the Draft Master Plan 2019. This early engagement allowed planners and stakeholders to stay up to date on actions taken before the Draft Master Plan exhibition 2019.

URA has said that it will take into account any suggestions or feedback received for the plan draft and incorporate them where necessary.
