Kuwait land use project

UK-based architectural firm BDP has been selected by Kuwait Municipality to carry out commercial land use background study in the country.

The urban planning project includes development of a set of commercial land use proposals and a planning policy framework which will support the development of the Kuwait National Masterplan 2040.

Kuwait Municipality head Ahmed Al Sobeih said it was one of the major recommendations from the masterplanning study to diversify the country’s income sources and commercial activities as an addition to the oil sector.

The project, which will be carried out for about 13 months, includes identification of the existing level of commercial activity in Kuwait with regards to floorspace, location and type of commercial activity including shops, restaurants, hotels, offices, malls.

After analysing the existing and expected population trends and consumer expenditure, the project team will model the amount, type and location of commercial activities required at five year intervals through to 2040.

The team will then develop planning policies and regulations which will ensure that there is an appropriate level and spread of commercial development across the country.
