The new e-system to apply for building permits among other reforms to be introduced by the Ministry of Municipality and Environment will benefit the country’s construction sector, Ezdan Real Estate said in a report.
The new reforms are expected to enter into force by February, which will positively reflect on the growth of construction activity during the year, Ezdan noted.
The weekly report highlighted the completion of the draft law pertaining to urban planning, which is expected to be notified by mid-2020, and said it will be a “significant stride” in the country’s urban development plan.
