IMPORTANT NOTES FOR INDUSTRIAL SPACE USERS

There are 3 key agencies in Singapore that govern the usage of industrial space:

National Enviroment Agency
(NEA)

  • Key Function: Industries seeking to establish or operate in designated areas must obtain NEA approval for Pollution Control. This involves adhering to stringent environmental standards to minimize the impact of industrial activities on the surrounding ecosystem.
  • Emphasis: NEA actively collaborates with industries to promote eco-friendly practices, ensuring a balance between industrial development and environmental preservation.

Jurong Town Corporation
(JTC)

  • Key Function: JTC is the go-to agency for businesses seeking approval for the lease or sub-lease of industrial spaces. Its role extends beyond being a landlord; it actively fosters an environment conducive to industrial growth and innovation.
  • Impact: By maintaining more than 80% of industrial spaces, JTC is a key driver of Singapore’s industrial landscape, ensuring optimal land utilization and strategic development.

Urban Redevelopment Authority
(URA)

  • Key Function: Industries must be in compliance with URA’s directive of a minimum 60% predominant industrial use within allocated spaces. This promotes a focused and specialized industrial landscape, contributing to the nation’s economic resilience.
  • Flexibility: Recognizing the need for versatility, URA allows the remaining 40% for ancillary or supporting uses. This flexibility encourages a dynamic mix of activities, fostering innovation and collaboration within industrial zones.
