With the Government announcement to decentralize the central area in Singapore, Jurong Lake District will be developed progressively in the next few years. The relocation of various Government agencies offices from the central area to Jurong Lake District, upcoming new hotels and residential areas will bring more people to the area. Furthermore, Singaporeans and tourists tend to dine at hawker centres for the cheap and affordable food will result to the increase consumption usage and waste generation. This study aims to correlate the gross floor area against the consumption of the common areas as well as the number of customers against the consumption of the individual hawker stalls and also study the norms that could result to the different electricity usage, water consumption and waste generation. Extensive literature review was carried out to understand the standard practices of the individual hawkers, regulations that the Government has in place and the concept of urban metabolism.
