  10. Definition of Planning Boundaries - Region, Planning Area and Subzones

    Definition of Planning Boundaries - Region, Planning Area and Subzones Urban redevelopment Authority (URA) divides Singapore into 5 regions, namely Central, West, North, North-East and East Regions. Each region has a population size of more than 500,000 people and provide a mix of residential, commercial, business and recreational areas. Each region will be served by a Regional Centre to complement the activities in the Central Business District.

    The Planning Regions are divided into smaller Planning Areas. There are a total of 55 Planning Areas in Singapore with each Planning Area having a population of about 150,000 and served by a town centre and several neighbourhood commercial/shopping centres. The number of Planning Areas within a Planning region ranges from 6 to 22 depending on the distribution of population within the region.

    Each Planning Area is further divided into smaller Subzones which are usually centre around a focal point such as neighbourhood centre or activity node. There can be more than 10 Subzones within a Planning Area

    The size of each planning area and it's Subzones varies depending on the land uses, proximity to the Central Area, existing physical separators like expressways, rivers, major open spaces and other demarcators. See more at: www.ura.gov.sg/maps/:
