The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) will be organising two public forums next month to gather feedback for the upcoming Concept Plan 2011.
URA earlier formed two focus groups to consider issues that will shape Singapore’s environment in the years ahead. Over the past four months, the focus groups have met to discuss quality of life, ageing, sustainability and identity issues
The groups will share their preliminary recommendations for Concept Plan 2011 at the public forums, to seek feedback.
The first forum – on Sustainability and Identity – will be held on May 6 at 6pm. Shell Companies in Singapore chairman Lee Tzu Yang and Institute of Policy Studies director Ong Keng Yong will co-chair the session.
The second forum – on Quality of Life and Ageing Issues – will take place on May 10 at 6pm. National Arts Council chairman Edmund Cheng and National University of Singapore president Tan Chorh Chuan will lead the session.
The focus groups will review the feedback received at the forums before submitting their final recommendations to URA.
URA will then come up with a draft Concept Plan after considering views from the focus groups and the public. It will allow the public to give feedback on the draft Concept Plan next year.
