Kuwait’s southern Khaitan project sees expansion

The Planning Sector, led by Eng. Manal Al-Asfour, Deputy Director General for Urban Planning and Structural Planning, has approved the expansion of the Southern Khaitan Project, plots 1 and 2, increasing the project area by approximately 70 thousand square meters.

The total area will now be 1,579,982,845 square meters, with the aim of accommodating more plots and housing units in accordance with the plan proposed by the General Corporation for Housing Welfare, reports Al-Qabas daily.

The municipality has set conditions for the expansion, including adhering to previously approved commercial spaces and uses, submitting a traffic study for approval by the structural plan administration, and coordinating with relevant ministries before implementation. The Planning Sector also authorized the administration to adjust final boundaries and coordinates as needed, canceling any conflicting previous decisions.

Additionally, the Planning Sector has approved the Ministry of Defense’s request to reduce the area allocated in the central region (Sabhan) from approximately 1,974,544 square meters to 1,625,892 square meters, to avoid services or obstacles. The sector has given authorization to adjust dimensions and area within specified limits, considering existing infrastructure services and regulatory reasons during installation.

Furthermore, the Amiri Diwan’s request to expand the Arabian Horse Center site in the north of the central Subhan region was approved. The expansion adds approximately 25,316 square meters to the site, distributed on the eastern and southern sides.

The total expanded area will be about 327 square meters. The approval is contingent on submitting a traffic study and coordination with municipal departments and members of the Subcommittee on Public Facilities and Services before implementation.

An informed source revealed that the expansion of the Arabian Horse Center is driven by the growing interest in breeding Arabian horses in Kuwait. The center, home to about 8 thousand purebred Arabian horses, hosts annual local and international festivals under the supervision of the ECHO (European Arabian Horse Beauty Authority).

These festivals attract enthusiasts and lovers from Kuwait and beyond, necessitating the need for designated places to house horses, committees, and service facilities.
