Under CORENET X, the regulatory approval process is being redesigned into 3 key sequential submission gateways to all Agencies for one collective and co-ordinated approval at each gateway.
The current regulatory process supporting concurrent separate submissions to Agencies consists over 20 approval touchpoints across the Development Control (“DC”) and Building Plan (“BP”) stages. The information and level of details required in DC and BP stages have been rationalised and sequenced into 3 key submission gateways, namely the Design Gateway, Construction Gateway and Completion Gateway. Please visit https://go.gov.sg/cx for more information.
Noting that smaller projects are not as complex and may benefit from a differentiated approach that simplifies the regulatory process, the Direct Submission Process offers a direct path to obtain plan approvals from all relevant agencies without having to go through the Design Gateway and Construction Gateway.
