Over 98% of residents have a general sense of belonging to estate: HDB survey

According to an HDB survey, over 98 per cent of residents said they developed a sense of belonging to their estate.

Neighbourliness is also strong amongst those polled. Over 94 per cent said they do have casual conversations with neighbours.

This is an improvement from the 82 per cent seen in the last survey.

While most neighbours are comfortable with exchanging a greeting or two, the comfort level drops significantly with activities that require more interaction.

For instance, only about 23 per cent of respondents are willing to lend or borrow a household item from neighbours while about 12 per cent said they would help look after their neighbour’s children.
