HDB launches exhibition on Punggol Phase 2 to gather feedback

SINGAPORE: The Housing and Development Board (HDB) has launched an exhibition to gather feedback on its plans for Punggol Phase 2.

The plans were unveiled on Tuesday. They include making Punggol about twice the size of Ang Mo Kio town when its development is complete.

The two-week long exhibition is taking place at the HDB Hub.

It includes a 3D model, which gives a "bird's eye view" of what Punggol town could look like in the future.

The public will be able to give input on how they would like common spaces or green areas to be used.

They are encouraged to fill up feedback forms or send in their thoughts online.

"I live in Punggol and the estate is beautiful and the fresh air is very good," said Ms Jenny Yeo, who has been a resident of Punggol for five years. "But we hope there (will be) a big shopping centre and a big wet market."

Some members of the public however, prefer to wait and see.

"Maybe not at the moment yet, maybe if in the later part where (development is complete), I would start to think about (it)," said Mr Edward Ong.

So far, HDB has completed 26,000 public housing units in Punggol Town.

Half of the town will be built by 2016.
