We are always looking out for opportunities to put vacant State lands not required for immediate development to meaningful use for the enjoyment of all residents. We continually explore opportunities to work with other agencies to make suitable State land available for community use. For example, SLA granted the Ayer Rajah-West Coast Citizens' Consultative Committee (CCC) the use of a 5.3 ha parcel of land along West Coast Road for public sports activities.
Separately, SLA has opened up about 275 plots of vacant State land to the public for community use. These plots covered an area of 496 ha, equivalent to about 690 football fields. SLA manages 83 of the sites, while HDB manages the rest. Members of the public can use the open spaces for free, with no booking required for unplanned activities.
The list of sites managed by SLA is a fluid one. Some of these sites will be removed from the list when they are put to interim use, while others may be added in the future.
