URA gazettes Singapore’s Master Plan 2008

Singapore’s Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has gazetted its Master Plan 2008.

It is a statutory land use plan that guides physical development of the country for the next 10 to 15 years.

Some 200,000 people visited the exhibition of the Draft Master Plan 2008 over the past six months.

And as part of public consultation process, the urban planners also reviewed 300 feedback received during the exhibition.

URA says relevant suggestions have been incorporated into the final Master Plan 2008.

The plan will introduce new commercial and sub-regional hubs at various parts of the island.

They include the Jurong Lake District, Kallang Riverside and Paya Lebar Central.

A new leisure plan has also been developed to provide more recreational options.

Meanwhile, the city area will continue to be Singapore’s key commercial centre, with seamless extension of the existing Central Business District into Marina Bay.
