Mr Foo Chee See

Mr. Foo Chee See took on various leadership portfolios in the former Planning Department (Ministry of National Development) and later Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) from 1975 to 2006. He was the Head of Strategic Planning, Head of Urban Design, Deputy Director of Physical Planning, and Director of Development Control during his tenure in the public sector.

 

Mr. Foo directed the preparation of Master Plan and Concept Plan, which are blueprints guiding mid to long term geographical and strategic developments of Singapore. From 1993 to 1996, he was in charge of detailed land use planning and the preparation of the Master Plan that shaped Suzhou Industrial Park in China today.

 

During his term as Director of Development Control, he implemented electronic submission to replace bulky submission of plans for planning approval. He also reviewed and replaced archaic development control policies and guidelines to keep up with emerging trends and facilitate faster approval process of developments on land. Mr Foo also directed enforcement efforts to minimise illegal usage and development of land and buildings.

 

From 1995 to 2006, Mr Foo was the lead person in URA participating in the massive government software transfer for the Suzhou Industrial Park project. Over this period, he trained numerous batches of senior Chinese officials and mayors on the Concept Plan & Master Plan processes, development control and other land use planning matters.

 

Mr. Foo’s extensive knowledge, exposure and experience in urban planning and physical development are well-sought after by Chinese leaders. From 2003 to 2010, he was appointed by the Chinese Mayors of Hang Zhou City, Jin Tan City, Kunshan City and Suzhou Industrial Park to be their planning advisor.

 

Mr. Foo was appointed senior advisor to URA on planning and development control upon his retirement in 2006. He took charge of overseas training and planning consultancy works, which included the implementation of development plan for the Royal Bafokeng Nation in South Africa.

 

In 2007, he decided to join the private sector. Currently he is a Board Director and Senior Advisor (City Planning) of SCP Consultants Pte Ltd, which specializes in city and town development planning for key cities in China.

 

For his dedicated contribution to the urban development of Singapore’s city landscape, Mr. Foo was awarded The Public Administration Medal (Silver) in 2001, Public Service Medal in 2004, and URA Long Service Award for 30 years of Service in 2005.
