Abstract: The success of Singapore new town development during the past fifty years is impressive and world renowned. This study intends to assess the provision and distribution of service shops, as well as their urban typology within township fabric. Five different generations of township have been selected for this study. Data has been collected via site visits, mappings and residents? responses via a questionnaire. By doing so, this dissertation attempts to explore the social impact of service shops on the interaction among neighbors and their attachment to the community. It is my hope that this study will be useful for promoting a more holistic and socially cohesive development of new towns in Singapore and that the evolving Singapore model would continue to be a leader among the rapidly developing cities in Asia.
