Revision of Development Charge Rate

1      The Ministry of National Development has revised the development charges (DC) rates for the period from 1 September 2010 to 28 February 2011.  The review is carried out on a half-yearly basis, in consultation with the Chief Valuer.

3       For Group B1 {Residential (landed)} the DC rates have on average increased by 13%, with the largest increase of 36% in Sector 117 (Sentosa).

4      The DC rates for Group B2 {Residential (non-landed)} have also increased by an average of 13%. The largest increase is 28% in Sect

5      For Group D (Industrial Use), there is an increase of 10% in DC rates on average, with the largest increase of 16% in Sector 115 (Woodlands / Yishun area).

6      The DC rates for Group I (Business zone commercial use) have not changed significantly on average. The rates for 11 sectors have increased with Sector 112 (Jurong Lake District) being the highest, while the rates for 107 sectors have decreased.  The DC rates for Group C (Hotel / Hospital) and the remaining four use groups are unchanged. (See Appendix 1 for Table of DC rates and Appendix 2 for the list of use groups.)

7      There are no changes to the Use Groups and the number of geographical sectors.

8    The revised DC rates, to be read in conjunction with the Use Group Table and the set of Geographical Sector maps (Map A and Map B), will be effective from 1 September 2010.  The new rates will apply to cases which are granted Provisional Permission (PP) or 2nd and subsequent extension to the PP on or after the effective date.

9      If there is any disagreement over the DC payable for any development proposal, calculated based on the rates under Use Groups A-H, developers and owners can opt for a case-by-case valuation by the Chief Valuer, as provided for in the Planning Act.
