URA adopts its latest Master Plan after proposals appraisals

The formalisation of an urban masterplan that will guide Singapore’s development over the next 10 to 20 years took place on Wednesday.

The authority stated in a release on the same day that under the gazetted Urban Redevelopment Authority Master Plan 2019, the former Railway Station Staff Quarters, and Bukittimah Fire Station had also been gazetted as being suitable for conservation.

The gazette completes the review and evaluation of the Draft Master Plan 2019 exhibited in URA premises from March until June this year.

More than 25,000 members of public and stakeholders visited the exhibition in this time period to learn more. About 6,000 participants also signed up for URA volunteer and staff-led tours.

Regional plans were also displayed to reach out to residents at Waterway Point, Westgate, Junction 8, Our Tampines Hub, and Causeway Point between July and August.

URA reported that, over the last few year, they engaged various stakeholders including residents, groups of interest, professional institutes and grassroots leaders.

URA also said that feedback received through focus group discussions, workshops, presentations, and exhibitions from various stakeholders helped it to develop its draft plans.

The authority explained that feedback from stakeholder sessions in particular helped refine the original plan for Kallang River. Jurong Lake District. Farrer Park. Holland Plain. Lorong Chuan. And shaped our plans to support Orchard Road.

The finalized plans were exhibited later as part the Draft Master Plan 2019, Early engagement enabled planners also to update stakeholders about the actions taken in advance of the Draft Master Plan 2019 Exhibition.

URA noted that the feedback and suggestions received on the draft plan were taken into account where possible and will also be considered when developing detailed plans in future areas.
