Construction permits of state housing projects to be issued in 10 days: Al-Qasabi
Saudi Arabia's ministry of municipal and rural affairs will accelerate the process of issuing construction permits of government housing projects within 10 days, minister Majid Al-Qasabi said on his Twitter account.
Through integrated efforts between the ministry, housing ministry and civil defense authority, the expedited permits will have a great impact on finishing more than 120,000 housing units for Saudi citizens, the minister said.
The three agencies signed on Thursday a memo to find a mechanism for expediting construction permits of government housing projects.
The mechanism will be applied to all government housing projects, including villas, units, or any other buildings, as the Saudi building code is the main design and construction reference.
