KUWAIT CITY, Feb 17, (Agencies):  The Cabinet has approved the request of the Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW) to allocate land in the southern part of Sabah Al-Ahmad City for the establishment of another residential city, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting sources.

Disclosing the new residential city will be named ‘Sabah Al-Awal City’, sources said the allocated land is enough for the construction of 50,000 residential units.  Sources added the project includes government houses, apartments and all the necessary facilities.

According to sources, the land will be handed over to the authority within the next few weeks or after obtaining a permit from the Kuwait Municipality which received an official letter in this regard from the government last week.  Sources stressed the necessary environmental and demographical studies will be conducted immediately after the Municipality issues the permit, followed by coordination with the concerned institutions for the provision of various services like water and electricity.

Meanwhile, head of Government Performance Follow-up Sheikh Ahmad Mishaal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah called on officials of the General Organization for Housing Welfare to expedite the implementation of housing projects, which “will reduce the number of eligible residential applications.” This statement came during Sheikh Ahmad’s visit for the housing welfare where he was received by the Director-General Subhi Yousef Al-Mulla and Deputy Director General for Planning and Design Fahad Suleiman Al-Saeed.
