The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) announced its first Conservation Master Plan in 1986, which identified six historical areas for conservation, namely Chinatown, Kampong Glam, Little India, Singapore River, Emerald Hill and the Heritage Link – a civic and cultural belt linking Empress Place, Fort Canning Park and Bras Basah Road.

This master plan elaborates on the first conservation blueprint of Singapore’s built heritage.
