Abu Dhabi Emirate Development Codes


The Development Code is a simple regulatory tool, developed from Plan Capital, Plan Al Ain and Plan Al Dhafra, to provide urban development regulations within the boundaries of Municipalities. It is developed from Continuous Planning Policies mentioned in the Plans.


The Purpose of the Code is to produce development regulations that govern the Emirate’s physical environment and ensure that the plot use and development is generally consistent with the Plans – the long term vision of the Emirate.
