2020 - 2023
Holland-Bukit Panjang Town Council was formed on 13 November 2001 under the Town Councils Act. Local elected representatives and residents are empowered to decide on local estate management matters — determining the identity and character of our town.
The Town Council also manages and maintains the common property of housing estates, including facilities, horticulture and estate improvement works.
Approximately 51,999 Housing and Development Board flats and over 1,717 commercial units and stalls are currently under the management of Holland-Bukit Panjang Town Council.
Helmed by Members of Parliament, Holland-Bukit Panjang Town Council covers Holland-Bukit Timah Group Representation Constituency—consisting of Bukit Timah, Cashew, Ulu Pandan and Zhenghua—and Bukit Panjang Single Member Constituency.
As the financial year 2022/2023 comes to a close, I would like to express my gratitude for your unwavering support, collaborative spirit and efforts throughout the year in defining our progress and journey. I am also pleased to share our achievements in this report.
Over the last twelve months, our town has undergone significant improvement and progress. We have also paid considerable attention to effective resource management and financial prudence in successfully completing several key projects and initiatives outlined in our plans. We are confident residents eagerly look forward to these enhancements in their neighbourhoods.
The financial year (FY 2021/2022) marks a significant milestone on our journey towards a more sustainable Holland-Bukit Panjang Town Council. Another fulfilling year has passed as we continue to work on both initiatives in keeping our town sustainable and inclusive.
Our Town Council has always prided itself with delivering excellent township governance for our residents. I am pleased to share that we have achieved the top band (Green) for all the indicators graded in the Town Council Management Report, which includes performance in Estate Cleanliness, Estate Maintenance, Lift Performance and S&CC Arrears Management. We are committed towards maintaining these standards, and we thank our staff members, councillors and stakeholders for working alongside in making this possible.
Apart from estate cleanliness and maintaining town’s facilities, we recognize that township governance needs to evolve towards more sustainable ways of carrying out our duties to residents and stakeholders. To fulfil our sustainability commitments set in 2017, we have launched our second Sustainability Report with a renewed focus on eight Sustainability Development Goals for our town.
The published report titled, “Sustainable Town, Resilient Community”, is an affirmation of our alignment with Singapore’s Green Plan 2030, as well as our residents’ wishes for our town to adopt more sustainable practices. To date, we have achieved 54 out of 121 targets, and I am pleased to announce that we are on track towards achieving the remaining targets by 2030.
The second Sustainability Report to be published by HollandBukit Panjang Town Council aims to communicate our sustainability practices to stakeholders in a transparent and accountable manner. In this report, we have introduced a new Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 9, which focuses on industry, innovation and infrastructure. Additionally, our seven previously adopted SDGs indicate the progress we have made so far in the respective areas, in alignment with the recently launched Action for Green Town programme and the SG Green Plan 2030.
Through this report, we seek to identify opportunities for improvement in our sustainability management approach as we integrate sustainability into our strategic plans, stakeholder engagement initiatives and operational processes.
