The Housing & Development Board (HDB) is Singapore's public housing authority and a statutory board under the Ministry of National Development.

HDB plans and develops public housing towns that provide Singaporeans with quality homes and living environments. In this effort, HDB engages in active research and development work to ensure that cost-effectiveness and quality standards are maintained and continually improved upon.

Even as HDB towns are provided with various commercial, recreational and social facilities and amenities for the convenience of residents, one of HDB’s key priorities is to ensure that they meet changing needs and circumstances. Through renewal and upgrading programmes, HDB brings new features, facilities and improvements to its older estates and towns to ensure their vibrancy and continued relevance.
