Dubai expands its commitment to building new communities, accelerating connectivity and global benchmarking
Dubai Municipality has allocated a total of 3,200 land plots to Emirati citizens in a move that supports its ambitious 2040 Urban Master Plan, and aligns with the comprehensive programme proposed by the Higher Committee for Development and Citizens Affairs.
The allocated plots will be fully serviced and will comprise not only a range of basic and essential amenities, but will also create entertainment facilities and leisure opportunities, including landscaped parks and exercise tracks for pedestrians and cyclists alike. Moreover, these will all be built and implemented according to the highest global standards. The designated locations of these land plots are designed to create a series of new regional, community-led hubs, further linking to the emirate’s expanding infrastructure.
During its first year, the Higher Committee for Development and Citizens Affairs approved the allocation of 11,500 land plots for citizens, as well as housing loans worth AED7bn ($1.9bn), benefiting around 7,000 people.
These moves further support the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, which aims to boost the quality of life in Dubai and further accelerate its global competitiveness via the creation of sustainable communities offering a high quality of living compatible with leading-edge global benchmarking.
