Saudi Arabia's Sakani offers 2,000 free land plots in Quwai'iyah, Riyadh
Ministry of Housing programme offers land plots under four housing schemes to boost home-ownership among citizens
The Sakani programme, part of Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Housing, has announced the addition of four housing schemes, offering 1,078 free plots of land, near the kingdom’s Al Quwai’iyah province, and another 960 free plots in Riyadh.
Saudi citizens seeking free land will be able to review the appropriate schemes and choose their plots on Sakani’s electronic booking platform. Beneficiaries will then have to complete the registration form and visit one of the ministry’s branches to finish the final procedures to obtain the land, which will be made available after the approvals are issued.
The housing ministry’s programme is in line with the kingdom’s plans to raise its citizens’ residential ownership to 60% by 2020 and reach 70% as part of its Vision 2030 economic diversification mandate.
The ministry – which has allocated a total of 207,296 plots, including 50,000 free plots, in 2019 – added in a statement that it would provide prefabricated housing units within its projects, as well as homes in partnership with real estate developers, to Saudi nationals.
