Neighbourhood Committees

The Neighbourhood Committees (NCs) were formed in June 1998 to encourage active citizenry and foster stronger community bonds within private housing estates. They also work with various government agencies to improve the social and physical environment in their private housing estates. The NCs are run by residents in private housing estates. They organise activities to promote community bonding among their residents, and also act as the communication channel between the residents and the relevant authorities to improve the facilities, cleanliness, safety, security and other areas in their estates.
