At an exhibition that began on June 6, the URA Master Plan 2019 and Long-Term Plan Review are being showcased, revealing upcoming plans for some of Singapore’s highly sought-after locations and new areas.
The development of a “Long Island” concept in the East Coast is under consideration to enhance Singapore’s resilience to the impact of climate change. This approach entails the integration of coastal protection measures with planned reclamation, which could involve the establishment of a new reservoir to strengthen the country’s food and water security.
New residential developments can be integrated with coastal parks and recreational areas on the “Long Island,” which was originally intended as a site for waterfront residences and leisure activities according to the 1991 Concept Plan.
A new Bayshore precinct featuring 12,500 homes is being planned for the Bayshore area along the East Coast Parkway. The upcoming development will comprise a balanced mix of public and private housing, with around 6,000 HDB flats and 6,500 private residential units.
