HH Sheikh Mohammed approved an $8.7bn housing plan in Feb 2019.

Two residential communities comprising 1,000 land plots in Dubai’s Nad Al Sheba and Wadi Al Amardi will be developed for Emiratis following approvals from HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai.

The latest approval brings the total numbers of land plots allocated for Dubai housing to 12,000.

Commenting on the land provision, Sheikh Mohammed said: “We have directed the Dubai Municipality to immediately start distribution of allocated land plots for eligible citizens.

“Our goal is always to make sure that Emirati citizens enjoy all types of support that make them happy and ensure psychological and social stability to their families,” the Dubai Ruler added, according to UAE state news agency, Wam.

Director-general of Dubai Municipality, Dawood Al Hajri, said the agency had started implementing Sheikh Mohammed’s directives.

In February 2019, Sheikh Mohammed approved an $8.7bn (AED32bn) housing plan that included the construction of 34,000 housing units over the next six years for UAE citizens.
