The Concept Plan is a strategic land use plan that will guide Singapore's development over the next 40 to 50 years. Reviewed every ten years, the Concept Plan ensures there is sufficient land to meet long-term population and economic growth while providing a good quality living environment.
The Concept Plan plays a vital role in helping us balance the land use needs to ensure sustainable growth for Singapore. The last Concept Plan review was completed in 2001.
We started the review of the Concept Plan 2011 in January 2010 and carried out extensive public consultation for the review. Public feedback was sought through different channels such as the URA Lifestyle Survey 2009, focus group discussions, and online survey. The feedback received is being studied as part of this review. Please feel free to view the collated feedback.
As announced in the Budget Debate 2012, the Government will be comprehensively examining our population goals and policies. In the course of the year, the National Population and Talent Division (NPTD) will be working with other agencies, and engaging stakeholders and members of the public through dialogues and online channels to discuss these issues holistically, including the size and composition of our population. These have impact on issues such as land use and infrastructure planning. Public feedback received will be incorporated in a White Paper on Population to be released by the end of this year.
In view of the upcoming discussions on population, we are extending the review of the Concept Plan to include the findings from these discussions.
For any queries, please contact us via the URA feedback channel.
