Looking ahead, the supply of homes in Woodlands looks set to increase greatly to meet the anticipated increase in demand as Woodlands comes into its own as a regional centre. HDB can be expected to push out more BTO flats in the neighbourhood over the next few years. The government is also expected to put up more land for sale, especially for ECs or mixed-use sites for commercial and residential use.
