Minister of Housing , Urban Planning and the City Abdelwahid Temmar affirmed Tuesday, in Annaba, that the management of the new cities and major urban poles constitutes, for his department, “a high priority that will be benefit from an effective support.”
In an inspection visit to the site of the new city Draa Errich, in the municipality of Oued El Aneb, the minister considered that these new cities require “an integrated and intelligent management” to accompany the development of these urban poles.
He also urged the managers of various public housing and equipment projects to make from the new city of Draa Errich “a model of an ecological and smart city,” notably in terms of energy exploitation, water recovery and management of open spaces.
While inspecting the construction sites of residential complexes of this new city which will host its first inhabitants “before the end of 2018,” the minister insisted on the execution, simultaneously, of external refurbishment works and encouraging young people to launch vital activities for the inhabitants’ daily life.
Temmar welcomed the dynamic of the execution of various housing programmes allowing the delivery, since 2015, of 13,000 housing units in the province of Annaba.
At Sidi Acour university centre in Annaba, Abdelwahid Temmar also chaired the symbolic handing over ceremony of keys and decisions of 2,000 housing units to the staff of the National Defense Ministry of several provinces.
