Sheikh Mohammed approves 763 hectare citizens’ housing in Umm Nahd


Dubai, 3 October 2017:


As per the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, a new area for citizens’ housing will be developed in Umm Nahd in Dubai.


Accordingly, Eng. Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality announced that the Municipality has completed the necessary procedures to plan a new residential area for citizens in Umm Nahd-3 on the Dubai-Al Ain road with a total area of 763 hectares (7,626,080 square meters).


He said the move is in line with the government’s keenness on the well-being of its citizens and on giving priority in providing all the requirements of a decent life and adequate housing for them and their families, which positively reflects on their social and economic stability and enhances their contribution to nation building and development.


Lootah said the new announcement also coincides with the World Population Day, which is celebrated this year by the United Nations under the theme, “Family Planning: Empowering People, Developing Nations” to raise awareness on population issues, including their relations with the environment and development.


Lootah said that while planning the new residential area, it has been taken into account the aspects of urban sustainability and the creation of a healthy environment for the residents by encouraging them to practice daily sports as there will be dedicated tracks for bicycles and pedestrians, in addition to sporting fields.


He said the Municipality will soon distribute the housing to citizens who have been approved by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Housing Establishment.


Eng. Dawoud Al Hajiri, Assistant Director General of the Municipality for Planning and Engineering Sector, said that a single plot is about 1,100 square meters (12,000 square feet) and the housing unit will be Ground+2.


“The new area takes into account everything that works to achieve prosperity and stability for citizens. It includes provision for the needs of the population of public services such as mosques, schools and public parks, in addition to various commercial services,” said Al Hajiri.
