According to council member Iman Al Qahatani, the Capital Council is mulling plans to increase rents at the Central Market.
She said the rents were not revised since the eighties and it is high time the council takes right steps in this regard.
“The Central Market has witnessed remarkable developments over the past few years, especially in terms of security and cleanliness. We have visited the market to identify the most important needs, thanks to the cooperation and coordination between the various stakeholders,” said Al Qahatani.
“Increasing rents is necessary to develop the market and raise its level. We also plan to develop the loading and unloading area and seek to find an alternative area for trucks, so that the place opposite to the street looks better,” she added.
Among the ongoing plans ready for implementation, Ms Al Qahatani said the work on Water Park would be completed by September 2019. “The construction of the outer wall of the park has begun covering 6.57 hectares.
The cost of the development will be nearly BD 3.3 million. The wall is expected to be completed in September 2018. The park will open in September 2019.
