Revision of development charge rates

  Published: 31 August 2017

The Ministry of National Development has revised the development charge (DC) rates for the period 1 September 2017 to 28 February 2018.  The review is carried out on a half-yearly basis in consultation with the Chief Valuer.
 
The DC rates for three Use Groups, namely Groups A (Commercial), B1 {Residential, (landed)} and B2 {Residential, (non-landed)} have increased. The DC rates remain unchanged for Use Groups C (Hotel/Hospital), D (Industry), E (Place of Worship / Civic and Community Institution), and 3 other Use Groups F, G and H. (See Appendix 1 [PDF, 13kb] for Table of DC Rates).

The DC rates for Use Group A (Commercial) have increased by 3.8% on average.  59 out of the 118 sectors have increases in DC rates ranging from 3% to 11%. There is no change to the DC rates for the remaining 59 sectors. The largest increase of 11% applies to the following sectors:

  • Sector 101 (Paya Lebar Road / Ubi area / Macpherson Road / Eunos Link / Aljunied Road / Sims Avenue / Jalan Eunos Area)
  • Sector 113 (Yuan Ching Road / Corporation Road / Jurong West Ave 2 / PIE / KPE / Choa Chu Kang Ave 1 / Choa Chu Kang Way / Choa Chu Kang Road / Woodlands Road / Upper Bukit Timah Road / Bukit Batok area / Bukit Panjang area)
  • Sector 114 (Boon Lay / Jurong West / Pioneer / Tuas / Sungei Kadut / Choa Chu Kang / Lim Chu Kang area)
  • Sector 115 (Mandai / Woodlands / Sembawang / Yishun area)

The DC rates for Use Group B1 {Residential, (landed)} have increased by 0.3% on average.  5 out of 118 sectors have increases in DC rates ranging from 7% to 9%. Rates are unchanged for the remaining 113 sectors. The largest increase of 9% applies to sector 100 (Tampines Road / Hougang / Punggol / Sengkang area)

The DC rates for Use Group B2 {Residential, (non-landed)} have increased by 13.8% on average.  116 out of 118 sectors have increases in DC rates ranging from 6% to 29%. Rates are unchanged for the remaining 2 sectors. The largest increase of 29% applies to sector 100 (Tampines Road / Hougang / Punggol / Sengkang area)

There are no changes to the Use Groups Table and the Geographical Sector maps.

The revised DC rates (Appendix 1 [PDF, 13kb]), to be read in conjunction with the Use Groups Table (Appendix 2 [PDF, 23kb]) and the set of Geographical Sector maps* (Map A [PDF, 900kb] and Map B [PDF, 515kb]), will be effective from 1 September 2017.  The new rates will apply to cases which are granted Provisional Permission (PP) or 2nd and subsequent extensions to the PP on or after the effective date. 

If there is any disagreement over the DC payable for any development proposal calculated based on the rates under the respective Use Groups, developers and owners can opt for a case-by-case valuation by the Chief Valuer, as provided for in the Planning Act.
