Planning for Singapore presents unique challenges because it is a city as well as a country. As Singapore’s land use planning and conservation authority, we aim to create a vibrant and sustainable city of distinction by guiding and facilitating our physical development in partnership with the community. Our comprehensive and forward-looking planning framework provides an integrated approach to sustainable economic, social and environmental growth development, while our plans and policies aim to balance the need between economic growth and a quality living environment. This includes providing adequate housing, a wide range of social and community amenities, accessible parks and open spaces, as well as sports and recreational facilities to cater to the different leisure needs and aspirations of our residents. We take pride in drawing up blueprints for Singapore, guiding and shaping design plans that give each area a unique charm and recognisable identity, and making Singapore a great city to live, work and play.
