Abstract: This report aims to establish the impact of Singapore’s population density on facilities provision by devising a benchmark ratio while comparing the towns’ planning standards. Recommendations will be presented to raise the availability of facilities as well as establishing an ideal facilities planning standard for future towns. As population steadily increases, it is critical for Singapore to utilize its limited land resource. This will help to meet the growing demands for facilities such as housing, transport, recreation, commerce and other community needs. It is therefore necessary to determine if facilities planning standards have fulfill resident requirement so as to provide a quality living environment. However, there is a lacking of such studies to promote comfort in terms of adequacy of facilities and welfare to the community by reviewing the planning standards presently. The study’s data are compiled from relevant authorities’ statistical reviews and reports. After evaluation, only the provision of carparks for the 5th generation new town was found to be adequate. Recommendation to change the existing surface carpark to the multi storey carpark for older generations’ new town was improvised. Next, institutional facilities’ planning standards for the five generations new towns were far too crowded for the residents. Introduction of mixed-level schools were recommended to improve overcrowding situation in towns. Additionally, community club and library facilities will be proposed to combine as part of the solution. Finally, provisions of commercial facilities for the five generations new towns were also found to be facing the congestion problem of congestion. Markets and food centres are suggested to construct more levels to cater to the Singapore increased population. Through comparison, despite the limit in ratios accuracy, it is noted that increased in population does present a great impact on the facilities provision. Hence, the null hypothesis is rejected.
