About SLA

The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) is a statutory board under the Ministry of Law. Formed on 1 June 2001, its mission is to optimise land resources for the social and economic development of Singapore.

SLA manages about 11,000 hectares of State land and about 5,000 State properties, which include residential, industrial and institutional buildings. Through interim use planning in support of our nation’s economic and social needs, we are able to maximise the use of vacant State land and properties in creative and innovative ways. We collect and market land-related information for the benefit of our customers by proactively leveraging cutting-edge technology.

As the national registration authority, SLA provides the framework for the implementation of the Government’s land policies and puts in place the legal infrastructure that facilitates effective property transactions for businesses and the public. SLA issues and guarantees land titles in Singapore. SLA is also responsible for the creation and maintenance of the national land survey system, where boundaries or legal limits of properties are defined, based on a coordinated cadastre survey system.

SLA drives the use and development of geospatial information science and technology by fostering a national collaborative environment that encourages innovation, knowledge sharing and value creation among public agencies, private enterprises and the community.
