Neighbourhood Committee

Neighbourhood Committees (NCs) were formed in June 1998 to encourage active citizenry and foster stronger community bonds within private housing estates. NCs also work with various government agencies to improve the social and physical environment in their private housing estates.

NCs’ functions are to:

  • Promote neighbourliness, harmony and cohesiveness amongst residents;
  • Connect with and make recommendations to government authorities on the needs and aspirations of residents;
  • Disseminate information and obtain feedback on government policies and actions from the residents; and
  • Foster good citizenship amongst residents.
