Alternative sites for studio apartments for elderly not feasible

SINGAPORE: The Housing Board has decided to go ahead with its original plans to build 130 units of studio apartments for the elderly at the junction between Toh Yi Drive and Toh Yi Road.

This decision comes a month after residents there submitted a petition to their Member of Parliament, Sim Ann, in a bid to oppose plans. The Housing Board said that the site was the only one available in the estate suitable to build the studio apartments.

However, it said that it had addressed the residents' concerns of losing the estate's main recreational facility by incorporating a children's playground, elderly fitness corner and community garden.

The Housing Board also explained that the other alternative sites suggested by the residents were not feasible.
