Abstract: A country with a small land mass and a high population density, Singapore values its land greatly and seeks to maximise the use of its land for development as much as possible. The primary focus on the economy has subordinated other land uses to be of relatively inferior importance. As a result, land of ecological and environmental value had been targeted for development from time to time, prompting environmentalists to lobby for the conservation of these sites. What results is a power play between the state and civil society, with varying results. This paper provides an analysis into two case studies, both of which had popular support, but with very different outcomes. It will look into the Senoko case in 1994 and Chek Jawa in 2001, analysing factors that influenced the success or failure of the respective causes.
