Saudi to raze 34 random neighbourhoods as part of development plan

As many as 34 of total 64 random neighbourhoods will be completely razed in Saudi Arabia’s city of Jeddah as part of the ongoing redevelopment plan, local media reported.

According to Mayor of Jeddah, the neighbourhoods that will be removed consist of abandoned houses or slums, making entry into those areas difficult.

The remaining 30 neighbuorhoods, despite having many random constructions, will not be removed.

The Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs and Housing has prepared 5,000 housing units for families who are beneficiaries of social security schemes and whose homes in slum areas have been dismantled.
