How PPPEA Came About...

Pasir 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.

The 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.

Besides 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.

We invite Pasir Panjang residents to join in serving the community and participate in our monthly meetings where you can meet like-minded residents who are keen to support and share the kampong spirit in our unique estate.
