AbstractMore than a million people have moved into the eight new towns in Hong Kong and fifteen in Singapore respectively. New towns in the two city states are basically led by public housing development and are able to fill their population target with people living in the massively-built public housing estates. Despite the heavy reliance on public housing in their development, there exist some fundamental differences in the planning policy and implementation strategy of new town development in the two city states. This paper attempts to compare the planning policy and implementation strategy of new town development in Hong Kong and Singapore and discusses some issues of transportation, employment, housing and social mix in the new towns. -from Authors
