The Holland–Bukit Timah Group Representation Constituency is a four-member Group Representation Constituency (GRC) located in the central, western and northern areas of Singapore.

The current MPs are Vivian Balakrishnan, Sim Ann, Christopher de Souza and Edward Chia from the People's Action Party (PAP).

History[edit]

Originally known as the Holland–Bukit Panjang Group Representation Constituency, it was renamed to its present name due to the Bukit Panjang ward of the GRC being carved out to form a Single Member Constituency, in return the Bukit Timah Single Member Constituency was absorbed. A large portion of Holland–Bukit Timah GRC is made up of jungle and nature reserve, namely the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and the Central Water Catchment.

Town Council[edit]

Holland–Bukit Timah Town Council are operating under the Bukit Panjang SMC and the Holland-Bukit Timah GRC.
