RIYADH: The Royal Commission for the City of Riyadh (RCRC) has lifted the suspension of development on large parts of the endowed lands north of King Salman Road, Saudi Press Agency reported.

The decision allows planning, development, sale, purchase and other services, provided that everything is compatible with the urban code of the city.

It is part of a series of measures aimed at helping the Saudi capital accommodate twice the current population by 2030, RCRC said

The commission said that Riyadh’s strategy is expected to put the city among the top ten cities in the world in terms of economy, competitiveness and quality of life by 2030.

A specialized committee has been formed to look into land affairs and the RCRC has also created a call center to improve communication with the public.
