A section of Geylang could be rezoned from residential/institution purposes to commercial/institution use if the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) gets public approval to amend the area’s Master Plan.

The affected region is bounded by Geylang Road, Lorong 22 Geylang, Guillemard Road and Lorong 4 Geylang, but excludes roads and a sports field bounded by Talma Road and Lorong 12 Geylang.

According to URA, land use changes may arise when development proposals do not conform to the Master Plan 2014.

Other areas currently being reviewed are at Lorong 27A Geylang, Lorong Chuan, Jalan Samulun in Jurong and Alexandra Road.

Under Singapore’s planning rules, such proposals must have broad community support to be approved. They are then incorporated as amendments to the Master Plan.

The public can submit their feedback to the proposal in writing to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of National Development, 5 Maxwell Road, Singapore 069110, by 11 February 2015.
