History

As a British colony, Singapore was conferred city status by a royal charter from King George VI in 1951, when Singapore was then a crown colony of the United Kingdom. The original Municipal Council was therefore renamed City Council, and the Municipal Building was renamed City Hall. In 1965, upon Singapore's secession from Malaysia, the Republic of Singapore Independence Act 1965 provided the following clausethat empowered the President to abolish the City Council and the Rural Board, with the powers of the local authorities assumed by the Government. The City Council of the City of Singapore and the Singapore Rural Board were abolished in 1965.
