Talkback Tuesday: Multi-generation cohabitation
Last September, the Singapore government rolled out the first batch of three-generation (3Gen) flats. Essentially, larger flats - each of which were at approximately 115 sq m in size (about 5 sq m bigger than a typical five-roomer). Each 3Gen flat typically has four bedrooms, a living area, a dining area, a kitchen, three bathrooms, and a store room cum apartment shelter. The idea behind this is, is that young couples should live with their parents.
This largely echoed preliminary results of an online poll that showed most young couples would rather live on their own. Most of the couples who took part in the Ministry of National Development (MND) session were worried about the lack of privacy of such three-generation (3Gen) flats.
So we asked what you thought about the idea of the Multi-generation flat. Should it be encouraged here in Malaysia?
