Sengkang is an increasingly vibrant new town. Over the next few years, residents will benefit from enhanced amenities and new lifestyle destinations a stone’s throw away from home, as well as greater access to green spaces and recreational facilities. Residents can also enjoy a shorter commute as job opportunities are created near homes.
How towns are planned Our towns are planned with a comprehensive range of facilities to meet the needs of current and future residents. These include housing, shops, schools, libraries, sports facilities, community clubs and parks – all important in ensuring a liveable, self-sufficient town. The facilities are carefully distributed across each town to ensure good accessibility, supported by an efficient transport network. Most towns also have commercial nodes and other employment centres such as industrial estates and business parks within the town or nearby, to provide job opportunities close to homes. These facilities and employment centres will be developed according to demand. The detailed planning and implementation of plans for each town is a joint effort of many government agencies.
