DPM unveils digital platform to identify land usage in Abu Dhabi
My Land launched in collaboration with Department of Transport and Abu Dhabi's digital and housing authorities
Abu Dhabi’s Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities (DPM), the entity established to support the growth and urban development of the UAE capital, has launched a digital platform named My Land to provide a detailed map and live data on both used and unused land in Abu Dhabi.
In a statement, DPM said that the platform was launched in cooperation with a number of government departments and entities, including Department of Transport (DoT), Abu Dhabi Digital Authority, and Abu Dhabi Housing Authority.
The digital platform is expected to make it easy for landowners to locate their plot and access building regulations to develop the land, while developers and investors will be able to identify vacant plots in the city.
Commenting on the platform, executive director of the strategic affairs sector at DPM, HE Mohamed Al Khadar Al Ahmed, said: "DPM's work on the launch of this platform is part of a series of strategic initiatives launched by the entity to achieve objectives of the Ghadan 21 initiative.
"The completion of the new platform will contribute to improving transparency of data, fulfil requirements of land planning, and provide integrated data for investors, developers and landowners.”
Users will be able to search for land at any location in Abu Dhabi through the platform, with each search providing details including the area's full address, relevant municipality, and building code and regulations.
The platform can also provide details on geographical location and access to the land, and data for community facilities in the vicinity.
All users can access the platform by clicking here, while landowners can access their plot using the QR code on their official site plan.
