Abstract: Although the optimization of scarce land resources has governed the planning and design of public housing in Singapore, the objective of catering to the daily needs of the residents was equally important. In order to achieve this objective, the neighborhood concept was used as a planning unit in the early years of the public housing programme. In the current phase, the precinct as a planning concept was introduced with the aim of promoting social interaction and community development. This paper examines the changes which have occurred in the planning and design of public housing in Singapore from its inception to the present. It attempts to show changes in the planning of housing estates and new towns based on the neighbourhood concept and the precinct concept and how these have contributed to the success of public housing in Singapore.
