Abu Dhabi issues decree to monitor issue of plots, low-cost housing

The Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, Gen. Shaikh Mohammad bin Zayed al Nahyan, has passed a decree, wherein a Committee has been formed to monitor the distribution of plots and distribution of low-budget housing for UAE nationals, and how to put the properties into good use.

The legislation is inline with the directives by the President H.H. Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed al Nahyan, who empowers the Committee, under the Chairmanship of Director General of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince's Office, to act accordingly to ensure reasonable distribution of houses and plots.

The Committee can propose necessary legislation required to regulate the distribution of houses and land, and how they could be put to good use.

It will also study issues pertaining to housing and draw necessary plans to solve any housing-related issues, and follow-up implementation of land and housing-related legislations and find out any possible causes that pose hindrance to the smooth implementation of the programme.

The Chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Council, Shaikh Mohammad, issued another decree establishing Abu Dhabi Center for Housing and Development of Utility Services. This center aims to improve standards of implementation of projects, ensuring that they meet the highest engineering standards. The center will also collaborate with the private sector to implement construction plans.

Another decree has been issued by Shaikh Mohammed wherein certain decisions made by the Eastern Region Development have been amended.

The Abu Dhabi Crown Prince also passed a decree on safety, health and environment management system.
