URA INVESTIGATING HOTEL BLOCKING PUBLIC ACCESS TO RIVER WATERFRONT

The Urban Redevelopment Authority is investigating a hotel for blocking access to the waterfront at Clifford Pier.

According to URA regulations, part of the area has to remain open to the public to be able to access parts of the waterfront at Collyer Quay. However, the area that provides access to the waterfront, including Clifford Pier, has been blocked off by potted plants and a long couch.

The Online Citizen has identified the hotel to be Fullerton Bay Hotel. A URA spokesperson has responded to queries, stating that hotels like Fullerton Bay Hotel are required to provide a pedestrian walkway along the deck areas at Clifford Pier to allow for public access to the waterfront. The URA told reporters that it would take enforcement action for any infringement of the guidelines after investigations.

According to TOC, the hotel has not received any formal notification of the investigation.
