Revised Guidelines on Temporary Workers Dormitory within Industrial or Warehouse Developments

19 Sep 2016

With effect from 19 September 2016, Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has revised the guidelines pertaining to Temporary Workers’ Dormitory nested within Industrial/Warehouse Estates.

The main purpose of this revision is to minimise the increasing pressure on the existing infrastructure in industrial areas where many of these dormitories are situated.

The revision includes the following pointers:

  1. Expanded list of industrial areas where new workers’ dormitories are disallowed
  2. Reduction in allowable gross floor area use quantum for ancillary/secondary uses
  3. Clarification of TP Renewal for ancillary/secondary workers’ dormitories
