Abstract

The government of Singapore is a key player in the evolution of urban planning on a national scale. Singapore is small in size and resource-poor, but the government's urban planning, clear responsibilities, high quality and efficiency, focus on the people, and the achievement of an excellent living environment serve as a model for China's urban planning as it undergoes rapid urbanization. This paper examines the origins of Singapore's status as a garden city, how the city-state strikes a balance between competing needs, the theories and methods it employs to plan and manage urban change and growth, and the policies and measures it employs to make the most efficient use of its land resources.
