Neighbourhood Renewal Programme

The Neighbourhood Renewal Programme (NRP), was introduced by HDB during the National Day Rally in August 2007,[1] is set to replace the IUP Plus. It focuses on block and neighbourhood improvements, and is fully funded by the government. Flats built up to 1989 which have not undergone the Main Upgrading Programme, Interim Upgrading Programme or IUP Plus are eligible for NRP. NRP is implemented on a larger area basis of 2 or more contigous precincts. There will be greater local consultation on the design proposal and facilities to be provided through public forums such as town hall meetings, surveys and dialogue sessions where residents will be able to voice their views and also hear the concerns of their fellow residents.

Scope of Works

Items that may be considered for upgrading works:[2]

Block-level items

  • New letterboxes
  • Residents’ corners
  • Seating area at void decks
  • Lift lobby tiling & rescreeding

Neighbourhood-level items

  • Drop-off porch
  • Covered linkways
  • Playground
  • Footpath/Jogging track
  • Fitness corner
  • Street soccer pitch
  • Pavilion/Shelter
  • Landscaping

Where feasible, other improvement works or upgrading programmes with separate funding may also be carried out in tandem with NRP to minimise inconvenience to the residents, e.g. Revitalization of Shops Scheme (ROS), upgrading of neighbourhood park and works to improve barrier-free accessibility.

Consensus Gathering

NRP will proceed only if at least 75% of the eligible flat owners in the neighbourhood indicate their support for it at the Consensus Gathering Exercise.[3]
