town council is responsible to maintain this area .
Sorry hor , this 2 years is super duper horrible.

A huge question : a HDB of 5 YEARS. just MOP.
Look like worse than 30 years old building.

is it possible to have such mouldy effect?
Even open window also mould on the external wall . Referred last 3 photo , that is from my window . Area near a river with forest downstair, near expressway .

Feedback to town council , their replied is wait for new paint coat which will take place in 2 years or later.

My son is asthmatic + chronic hives , ive tried dehumidifier , air purifier which costed 2k , hippo in all cupboard yet he have eyes allergy + nose issues. Exterior i totally cant help it.

Interior of flat are perfect fine! i must highlight it, there is no MOULD at my living room , room etc . I need them to buck up on the exterior.

Walk around the estate , the location are prefect , very cooling , comfortable.

I cant accept the ways TOWN COUNCIL highlighted to me , to ask me wait for another 2 years & closed my ticket.

See below comments of my old post, where do you find the location that is sooo green ?

Thanks for the tag. I had tried to comment on the original poster’s page, but commenting seemed to be turned off for me, so I’ll share what I sent directly to her (she had contacted me via our hotline, too). For starters, I agree that the state of the block is poor, and that is this disappointing. It does not look appealing, and for a block that is only 5 years old, it does look older than it should.

That said, it’s important to recognize why this is so. I’m not a building expert, but I’ve been told that one contributing factor could be the choice of paint. Many new builds do not utilize the most anti-mould paint available. During the first R&R exercise, these are often upgraded. That will be the plan for the cluster, as it has been for other clusters that SKTC has overseen R&R works for.

Another factor could be the location of the building. It is located beside a river, and receives a fair bit of direct sunlight. The condition described is mainly for the C and D blocks, but not A and B (which are less exposed). Since the cluster was built at the same time and is maintained by the same team, it suggests that the source of the problem lies beyond simply the quality of development by HDB, or maintenance by the town council.

All that said, it’s fair to ask if there is anything that we can do to help address the issue. I’ve been in communication with the town council, and we are working out a plan to accelerate the R&R works for this cluster, so that it will occur sooner than the usual 7-year cycle. This will be subject to approval, and there are the usual necessary procedures—designing the project, calling for open tender, and the like—that mean that the issue might not be addressed instantaneously. But rest assured that we’re working on it, and we will be keeping residents updated on the status in the meantime, and request their patience.
