If HDB decide not to go ahead with the Sembawang BTO, will they refund the $10 application fee for those who applied?

wah sian i feel regret apply semb
did u went down physically to see the BTO site and the surrounding?

i did.. just pass by only though. one look... it doesn't interest me already haha...

why?

- i only see one empty big plot of land, beside it some factories.
- no mrt in sight
- me work in tiong bahru (next time i dunno... but i doubt i will find a job in the north...), my gf teaching in piano schs... but not in north

so i never even consider sembawang.

i doubt so...

anyway they may just go ahead and build... then those already applied maybe squeeze them into balloting for 1 block.

then sept BTO, maybe sembawang will appear again?

Mr Khaw has indicated he will now proceed to build all BTOs regardless of how low is the application rate. So 99% the BTO will be built.

But whether they will improve the surroundings of the ulu area (adding more amenities, buses, etc) is a different matter already. That may depend on whether they want to build more BTOs there in near future.

I think only a new mrt station everyone is hoping for can save the area.
