The problem is being solved by the establishment of housing and development board (HDB)in 1960. The aim of HDB is to provide affordable public housing for Singapore’s growing population. HDB implemented a housing programme that sought to build new flats.
By the end of 1965, 53000 new flats were built. New housing estates that are located away from the city area had been created. HDB relocated many families to HDB flats in other parts of Singapore to address the problem of overcrowding around the city area.
The HDB flats are equipped with modern toilet facilities as well as electrical and water supplies. This attracted many people to chose to live in HDB flats.
Moreover, the government allowed Singaporeans to purchase HDB apartments through their saving from the Central Provident Fund (CPF) since 1968. Thus, this increased home ownership among Singaporeans.
