Management of State Land and Buildings

Sale of Remnant Land
Some parcels of State land by virtue of their small size and/or irregular shape are not suitable for independent development. These parcels of State land are commonly referred to as remnant land.

Remnant land can add substantial value to adjoining private lands when amalgamated with the private lands. To optimise the use of these remnant lands, the Government encourages private landowners to purchase and amalgamate them with their private lands. The Government may in suitable cases also require developers/owners to do so.

Please refer to the for more details.
