Municipality Spatial Development Plan

The project of Municipality Spatial Development Plan provides zoning and land use regulations for almost whole country of Qatar. It superseded the Interim Zoning Regulations that were in force from 2008.

It was a large scale and comprehensive zoning project that followed the Qatar National Development Framework’s (2014) vision and objectives. It allowed better regulations for the rapid growth of Qatar spacial structure, while maintaining the balance of sustainable development, public infrastructure, environmental protection and opportunities for private developers. 16 Centre Plans were also a part of the MSDP.

Zoning is available for the public through the Geoportal and a description of the regulations is published on the official website.
