SINGAPORE: The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) is embarking on a survey to establish lifestyle needs and trends in Singapore.
The findings of the URA Lifestyle Survey will provide inputs to the ongoing Concept Plan 2011 Review, which maps out the long-term directions for land use and transportation plans over the next 40 to 50 years.
Through this survey, URA also hopes to discover the lifestyle needs and aspirations of residents so that it can work with relevant agencies to improve the current provision of amenities and facilities such as those for leisure and recreation.
The survey is conducted once every five years and will gather information from some 4,000 respondents, from all walks of life, on factors that contribute towards creating a sense of belonging to Singapore.
The survey will be conducted between August and November this year, and notification letters will be sent to the selected households.
