SINGAPORE — Public housing built in prime locations in Singapore should come with additional subsidies on top of those that currently exist to keep such flats affordable and accessible for Singaporeans.
And to ensure affordability over time, these flats should also be resold only to the Government, who may need to introduce eligibility criteria for subsequent resale buyers.
These were among some of the feedback more than 6,500 members of the public have given to the Ministry of National Development (MND) and the Housing and Development Board (HDB) since last November, when the authorities started gathering views on how to keep upcoming public housing developments in prime locations affordable, accessible and inclusive for Singaporeans.
