Bahrain government to hand over 4,800 new housing units
Bahrain government has started the distribution of 4,800 housing units to its major beneficiaries within Northern City (Al Madina Al Shamaliya), one of the largest strategic projects being carried out by the housing ministry.
The move comes following the order of HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister, reported Bahrain News Agency (BNA).
The project is a massive one in terms of area and population covering 740,000ha, and on completion, it will accommodate around 100,000 people, stated the report, citing a senior government official.
The distribution of the Northern Citys units adds to the Crown Princes previous orders to hand over units to beneficiaries under the 25,000-unit Government Action Plan, remarked Shaikh Abdulla bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, the undersecretary at the Housing Ministry. This emanates from His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifas directives to build 40,000 homes across the country, stated Shaikh Abdulla.
He underlined the housing ministrys keenness on implementing the Crown Princes orders through speedy implementation of the residential projects to help meet the housing needs of the citizens nationwide.
