SINGAPORE - The Urban Redevelopment Authority's chief planner gazetted on Friday the Master Plan 2014, the statutory land use plan that guides the physical development of Singapore for the medium term.

As part of the Master Plan, all 75 heritage buildings proposed for conservation under the Draft Master Plan 2013 were also gazetted today. These buildings include the Buddhist Leong San See Temple, the Hindu Sri Veeramakaliamman temple and warehouses along Robertson Quay.

The gazetting of the Master Plan comes after a year-long review of the Draft Master Plan 2013, which was exhibited in November 2013 by the URA. In that month, the exhibition attracted some 61,000 visitors, and URA's website had more than 513,000 page views.

The review also involved consultations with Members of Parliament, grassroots leaders, professional institutions and other stakeholders.

Both the Master Plan 2014 and the Master Plan Written Statement 2014 are available in hard copy at the URA Centre for public viewing. They are also available online at http://www.ura.gov.sg.

Members of the public can contact the URA hotline at 6221 6666 for any queries.
