An operator will be appointed to manage the site, similar to the current Joint Singles Scheme Operator Run (JSS-OR) model that is also being piloted.
Currently, singles who need public rental flats can apply with another applicant or they can be matched with another single applicant.
This is to maximise the use of space to support as many vulnerable individuals as possible, as well as to allow for tenants to provide some mutual care and support, said Minister for National Development Desmond Lee on Monday during an interview with reporters.
However, there have been cases where rental flat tenants have difficulty living together, and the Singles Public Rental scheme has been tweaked over the years.
In 2015, partitions were added to the rental flats to provide more privacy to the tenants, and in 2021, the JSS-OR was piloted.
The JSS-OR involves bringing in a social service agency to match single applicants, to mediate if there are disputes and provide social service support if needed.
The Ministry of National Development (MND) had announced during its Committee of Supply debate that it would expand the JSS-OR to three new sites this year, in addition to the three sites currently in operation.
