Ura Master Plan

The Master Plan (MP) is the statutory land use plan which guides Singapore’s development in the medium term over the next 10 to 15 years. Reviewed every five years and translates the broad long-term strategies of the Concept Plan into detailed plans to guide the development of land and property. The Master Plan shows the permissible land use and density for developments in Singapore.

The Master Plan and the Concept Plan provide a comprehensive, forward-looking and integrated planning framework for sustainable development. Given the constraints of our small land area, the Master Plan and the Concept Plan have played a vital role in helping us balance our many land use needs, such as housing, industry, commerce, parks, recreation, transport, defence and community facilities. In reviewing the Master Plan, we take into account all major land needs in collaboration with relevant government agencies.

Public consultation is an important component of the Master Plan process. Through engaging our stakeholders and the public at large, we can better address their concerns and aspirations as we plan for the future. In past Master Plan Reviews, extensive public consultation has been carried out through various channels such as exhibitions, focus group discussions, and public forums.

The Master Plan was introduced in 1958 and has undergone regular updates every 5 years. The Master Plan has evolved from being a plan which simply reflected preceding land use amendments to one which focuses on planning ahead for future developments. In particular, it was transformed to a more forward-looking planning document in the mid 1990s through the advent of the Development Guide Plans (DGPs), which set out detailed planning objectives at the local and regional levels that were aligned with the broader planning intentions of the Concept Plan. The regular review and amendments to the Master Plan have factored in changes in local and global trends, and ensured that our plans remain relevant to address future challenges and meet the needs of Singaporeans.
