New CC in Punggol to be built

WORK will start on a brand-new community club (CC) in the new township of Punggol 21, giving the growing population of residents there a bigger space to hold community activities.

The new CC, called the Punggol 21 Community Club, will be built next to Punggol Plaza, a commercial centre along Edgedale Plains.

The four-storey centre, will serve as a meeting place for residents 'to gather for social and recreational purposes and foster a strong community spirit', said Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean. He was the guest of honour at the building's groundbreaking ceremony on Sunday.

Mr Teo, an MP for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC, said Singaporeans have moved to the northeast as they like the 'attractive homes and setting', making Punggol 21 the fastest growing new town in Singapore. He added: 'Many are new, young families, owning their first home.'

The first HDB flats in Punggol were built in 1998 and the town has since expanded to 17,000 housing units. Now, Punggol has 58,700 residents in public housing and about 400 residents in private properties.

The new CC, which will be completed in 2011, is estimated to cost $9 million.
