Title: New Residents’ Network to serve HDB, private estate dwellers

Brief: Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced on 20 July 2018 that new HDB flats and private developments will be served by one entity, i.e. the Residents’ Network (RN), instead of having separate Residents’ Committees (RCs) and Neighbourhood Committees (NCs) for HDB and private estate dwellers. The move is to encourage dwellers from the public and private housing to mix more freely and for better sharing of resources by the committees.
