Voices from the Heartland
The enthusiasm of residents at Tampines Changkat’s Neighbourhood Renewal Programme (NRP) on 10 December 2017 was evident through the active participation. Held for two residential areas, block 138 to 139, and 124 to 127, the separate sessions saw residents sharing their thoughts and suggestions with officials that were present, including MP for Tampines GRC, Mayor Desmond Choo.
Drop-off points, seating area, fitness equipment and high and low sheltered link ways were among the enhancements that residents were briefed about at the event. The improvements in the neighbourhood are meant to encourage community bonding between families and members of the community, alongside elevating the living experience of residents.
With the NRP being funded by the government, residents were also reminded of the importance to vote their preference as the plan will only be materialised with at least 75% of agreement.
The works that will commence by the end of 2018, is expected to complete within one and half years to two years.
