How PPPEA Came About...
Panjang has a high concentration of private estates
and landed properties. It has among its residents,
a large expatriate population too by virtue of the
many higher institutions of education and research
located in its vicinity.
PPPEA was formed in 1997 to share information on common
condominium issues, foster strong community bonds
among the residents as well as to improve the physical
environment around the private estates and landed
properties in Pasir Panjang. In 1998 it was registered
as a Neighbourhood Committee (NC) under the auspices
of the Peopleís Association (PA) and was in the West
Coast ward for several years with Mr. S. Iswaran as
its Advisor. Earlier this year, PPPEA, as a Grassroots
Organization, was transferred to from West Coast CCC
to Telok Blangah CCC. Our advisor now is the Minister
of Trade and Industry and MP for our
constituency, Mr. Lim Hng Kiang.
organizing family oriented social activities (e.g.
our annual lantern night celebration at Kent Ridge
Park), PPPEA has also helped organize golf tournaments
to raise money for the Pasir Panjang Welfare Fund
and other charities. It is involved in bringing common
social issues to the various Authorities and Statutory
Boards and provide feedback to the government on the
concerns of our residents. On its own initiative PPPEA
has established a database of services and rates where
Management Corporation of private condominiums and
apartments can refer to when such services are required.
