Abstract: Singapore has often been described as a highly planned city-state. It is a city in which land development is planned and strictly controlled. With few exceptions, all development involving construction or change of use requires permission. Despite criticisms of its centralized planning and tabula rasa development outcomes (Koolhaas & Mau, 1995), Singapore presents a prototype of urban governance in which land use planning is taken seriously and plans are implemented with relatively high compliance with development control and planning regulations. In recent years Singapore has gained increasing international recognition as a model of good practice for public land management (Yeung, 1987; Wakeley & You, 2001). © 2009 Springer Netherlands.
