    Default visit it before it's too late; pulau ubin will soon be changed into an adventure park

    probably still gonna be a few years before anything is built, but if the villagers are being evicted now, it would be a lifeless place.

    the planners of Singapore have sold our soul to Mammon.

    i guess the only place we will ever see a traditional kampung in future is at FIBUA villages or whatever they call it now

    However, if affected residents do decide to stay in their homes, they will have to pay rent from now on because they are staying on state land.
    Can the resident afford the rent ?????

    They like to take away the options to force people do according to what they want.

    example take away long bus route and force people to take MRT.

    If the resident cannot afford the rent and move, they will save large sum of compensation $$$$

    i love it how a "NOTICE OF CENSUS SURVEY" can be reported as a "NOTICE OF EVICTION".



    This is the text in the notice:

    To: Owner/Occupier

    Singapore
    Survey No. AP14

    Dear Sir / Madam

    SLA has sought HDB Land Clearance Section (LCS)'s assistance to clear the above squatter house. In connection with the clearance, officers from LCS/SLA will visit your premises to conduct a census survey for the purpose of determining your eligibility for resettlement benefits.

    (v) Death Certificate if the owner had passed away, Letter of Administration or Grant of Probate, if any.

    this is progress.

    our tiny island can't hold much more people.

    we definitely need to look elsewhere for development... we cannot keep reclaiming land. also, because land that has been reclaimed will need years to settle before we can even build anything there.

    what happened to "Squatter's Law" aka, occupied the landspace for x number of years without paying rent or with the owner's implicit consent (by not clearing them off prior)...these untitled homeowners should have a legal right also...

    but I am just a kitty cat, not a lawyer

    Repelled a long time ago during the early post-colonial period for state land though Land Acquisition Act (Chapter 152) is currently in place and also in 1994 whereas for adverse possession of private properties.

    Don't worry about it being lifeless.

    Last time I went there the whole place was swarmed with photographers and their XMM models.
