Singapore Industrial Guide
Industrial buildings in Singapore fall under 3 broad land use zonings – Business 1, Business 2 and Business Parks.
These are areas used or intended to be used for industry, warehouse, utilities and telecommunication uses for which the relevant authority (i.e. NEA) does not impose a nuisance buffer greater than 50m.
These are areas used or intended to be used for industry, warehouse, utilities and telecommunication uses, whereby the business uses will impose nuisance buffer more than 50m and within health and safety buffers. Special industries such as manufacture of industrial machinery, shipbuilding and repairing, may be allowed in selected areas subject to evaluation by the Competent Authority.
The Master Plan zoning of “Business Park” specifically sets aside land for non-pollutive industries and businesses that engage in high-technology, research and development (R&D), high value-added and knowledge-intensive activities. Business parks and science parks are examples of developments within this zoning.
