URA to gather feedback on recommendations to Concept Plan 2011

The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) is organising two public forums next month to gather feedback on the recommendations of its Concept Plan 2011.

The Concept Plan 2011 maps out the long term directions for Singapore’s land use and transportation plans over the next 40 to 50 years.

As part of the process, URA is organising the public forum to engage and involve Singaporeans on plans to shape the country.

Since the launch of the Concept Plan 2011 in January this year, two focus groups were formed to discuss 4 key issues.

The 4 issues are – Quality of Life; Ageing issues; Sustainability; and Identity.

The focus groups will review the feedback received at the forums before they submit their final recommendations to URA.

After taking into consideration the views of the focus groups and the public, a draft Concept Plan 2011 will be formulated.

The first public forum on “Sustainability and Identity” will be held on Thursday, May 6 at 6pm.

The session will be co-chaired by Lee Tzu Yang, chairman of Shell Companies in Singapore and Ambassador Ong Keng Yong, director of Institute of Policy Studies. They will be leading the focus group on these topics.

The second forum on “Quality of Life and Ageing Issues” will be held on Monday, May 10 at 6pm.

This session will be co-chaired by Edmund Cheng, chairman of the National Arts Council, and Professor Tan Chorh Chuan, president of National University of Singapore. They are leading the focus group on these topics.

Online registration for the forum is open to all members of the public from now till April 26.

The public can register for the forums here.

For enquiries, the public can call 6329 3212.
