URA Concept Plan 2011 review: 1st preliminary recommendations published; public feedback by 25 May 2010

Category : conceptplan

Every ten years, the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore (URA) unveils a Concept Plan which it subjects to review by working groups. The public is invited to participate to this review through surveys and letters.

The resulting recommendations are submitted to URA by the Working Groups. The government responds to the suggestions and integrates some proportion into the URA Master Plan, on ongoing document that maps out probable directions about land use in Singapore in the decade ahead.

On 23 January 2010, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) announced the launch of the Concept Plan 2011 (CP2011) Review Public Consultation exercise. Of the five areas identified in the CP2011 review, the Focus Group on Sustainability and Identity considered two main thrusts: "Building a sustainable city" and "Making Singapore an endearing home."

Yesterday (6th May 2010), the Focus Group presented their "Summary of Preliminary Recommendations" which is available to the public at the Focus Group Public Forum website.

Feedback is invited by 25 May 2010. This feedback "will be considered by the Focus Group for incorporation in its final report." [link]
