Boon Lay

Boon Lay is a residential precinct in Jurong, named after Chew Boon Lay, a prominent businessman in the late 19th century and early 20th century who owned the land where the precinct stands, when a requisition of 1.012 kmĀ² of land from his estate was done by the war department of the then colonial government of Singapore, leading to the growth of Boon Lay Village in the 1940s, with a population of about 420 in the early 1960s.

It is a division of West Coast GRC, under the management of West Coast Town Council and the people living there are represented in parliament by Lawrence Wong.
