Singapore Chronicles – Urban Planning

Singapore is a modern and global island-state, internationally recognised as one of the most liveable cities in the world. Since its Independence, Singapore’s journey towards its present-day urban landscape has been characterised by the political will to tackle pressing priorities together with bold professional initiatives in land planning. This book examines the significant role that land planning plays in Singapore’s physical transformation and economic development, while exploring future challenges in the light of demographic changes, technological advances and environmental pressures. These complexities will require more flexible and innovative land-use policies and strategies to shape Singapore in the next 50 years.
