Town Design Guide

Designing HDB towns

In building new neighbourhoods and upgrading existing ones, we will carve out a unique identity for each town, so that residents feel a sense of belonging. Besides HDB, partners such as Town Councils, designers and other agencies also play a part in building and rejuvenating our towns.

We will continue to develop Town Design Guides to share the vision, planning and design principles for our towns with these partners. This will allow us to work together to create developments that draw on each town’s identity. We launched the first Town Design Guide for Woodlands in 2018, and will progressively complete the Town Design Guides for the remaining 23 HDB towns.
