Details:

The zone of Sofar in the Caza of Aaley is a prime touristic area with a high degree of urban development. Throughout the past fifty years there have been a number of changes in the pattern of land ownership and the road network.

Lack of coordination among the various departments which issued the planning decrees necessitated the compilation of a master plan in GIS format that highlights the zones of conflict among them.

A complete land survey took place to identify these zones, followed by the constitution of a master plan that corrects the anomalies and rectifies the lack of coordination.

As a last step, a revision of the master plan was carried out in order to cancel unnecessary projected roads and streets and to add other necessary connections added. A single planning decree would be issued replacing all precedent decrees, and harmonizing their result.
