THE IMPACT OF PLANNING NEW CITIES ON DEVELOPMENT IN THE GULF STATES

Auther : By: Dr. Walid Al-Menayes

 

           This paper is concerned with the concept of planning new cities and its implications for development in some Gulf States, New Cities, in general are planning to fulfill the following needs:

 1.     To absorb high population densities from main urban centers.

2.     To direct urban development into some isolated areas.

3.     To fix political boundaries especially over those areas of political disputes.

4.     To develop industrial centers in undeveloped areas so as to achieve equal distribution of population.

 Four new cities were chosen for this purpose, viz, Jubail (Saudi Arabia), Umm Sa’eed (Qatar), Jabal Ali (United Arab Emirates) and Sabiya (Kuwait).  Jubail was planned to decentralize industry and population in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia by establishing an industrial seaport city for oil exports and trade.  Umm Sa’eed and Jabal Ali had similar purposes; Sabiyah was established merely for services and trade.  These four cities vary in size: their population ranges from thirty thousands to half a million.
