The Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC) has revealed a new initiative to create a Capital Projects Plans (CPP) for the Al Gharbia and Al Ain regions. According to the UPC, the move is in line with Abu Dhabi’s desire to fully integrate data and hone Abu Dhabi’s journey towards Vision 2030.

As custodian of the 2030 Framework Plans, which govern the long-term urban development of Abu Dhabi, the UPC recently met with 43 government and developer entities to brief them on the new initiative, which will take the same format as the CPP for the Abu Dhabi Metropolitan Area.

The UPC prepared the CPP for the Abu Dhabi Metropolitan Area to collect and spatially map all of the projects that require government funding for the Abu Dhabi Capital region. Following the success of this initiative, which was completed earlier this year as part of the Plan Capital 2030 update, the UPC said it is now creating CPPs for Al Ain and Al Gharbia to ensure a coherent picture of the whole emirate is prepared in a new, integrated platform.

Representatives from Al Ain and Al Gharbia’s government entities were invited to attend the meeting to explain all requirements for the project and anticipated timings. The project is due to be completed in the first quarter next year.

The UPC will compile information into a database that will then be mapped using cutting-edge Smart Geoplanner technology by the UPC’s award-winning Geographical Information System department.

The capital projects data collected for each region will feed into the CPPs that are being prepared for the updated editions of Plan Al Ain 2030 and Plan Al Gharbia 2030, which are due for release soon.

“The UPC is committed to ensuring that all projects in the regions of Al Ain and Al Gharbia are aligned with the objectives of Vision 2030,” said Abdulla Al Sahi, Executive Director of Corporate Services Sector and Acting Executive Director of Planning and Infrastructure Sector at the UPC.
