Serangoon North gets S$7m Neighbourhood Renewal Programme

Serangoon North residents can look forward to a S$7 million Neighbourhood Renewal Programme.

The project will enhance the living environment for some 2,000 households living in 29 blocks along Serangoon North Avenue 1 and 2.

The new and upgraded amenities are aimed at encouraging families, community and social groups to gather, socialise and improve community bonding.

Proposed amenities include beautifully landscaped family parks, modern community plaza, modern children playgrounds and boardwalks.

Following the consultation exercise, the Working Committee will consolidate and review the feedback from residents before finalising the type and extent of improvements to be carried out.

A consensus gathering exercise will be held after the public consultation and exhibition for all residents to vote for the Neighbourhood Renewal Programme.

The upgrading will only proceed if 75 per cent or more of the eligible household units in the precinct vote in favour.

The project is scheduled to be completed within a two-year period upon receiving support from the consensus gathering exercise.
