We thank Mr Leong Kok Seng for his interest and feedback ("Share details on heritage building's preservation"; Forum Online, Sept 27).
The proposed swimming complex is planned as part of the future Sembawang Sports and Community Hub, which brings together a cluster of sports and community uses in Sembawang.
To ensure that the hub is easily accessible to Sembawang and north region residents, the site beside the Sembawang MRT station and bus interchange was earlier identified.
Agencies are keenly aware of the heritage value of the site, which includes the former Admiralty House, a national monument, and think that the site presents an opportunity for a unique sports and community cluster.
It is indeed our intention to incorporate the heritage of the site, which includes the former Admiralty House and the underground bunker, in the design of the future hub.
