AlUla Is Giving Its Residents a New Design and Feel to Their Homes




AlUla, one of the Kingdom’s most beautiful spots and a stunning heritage place, will not only be sharing its historic treasures with the world but will soon give residents a new design and feel to their homes.

Besides invigorating tourism, generating jobs and reviving the economy by drawing in thousands of tourists, the Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) is now working towards enhancing the lives of residents by designing their homes as part of a major urban regeneration project for the historic Saudi location.

The AlUla Design Studio (UDS), launched by RCU, is a new public service that is working towards reshaping the future development of the local community.

“We’re driven by good design, good outcomes, by protecting our heritage, the environment, and by making sure that we create sustainable infrastructure,” Stephen Murray, chief of county zoning and planning at the RCU, told Arab News.

“We would like to be a model not only for Saudi Arabia but also the world (on) how you can design new places, live with the environment, be sustainable and protect it, but also open it to the world.” He added.

The RCU aims at promoting AlUla town as a model of urban planning, regeneration and quality of life in the Kingdom. The UDS initiative will provide residents of AlUla South with the chance to have an opinion in the property styles that suit their locality.

“One of the things we’ve looked at, at the royal commission, is creating great places to live, creating neighborhoods, places where people enjoy and the community can grow together,” said Murray.

We can’t wait to see the results of such a beautiful project.

New Marriage Policies To Grant Women of Saudi Arabia More Rights




Saudi Arabia is still working towards achieving equality with focus on equalizing the legislation surrounding marriage contracts for women of the Kingdom.

According to several sources that were interviewed by the Kingdom’s daily newspaper Okaz, word has it that the Ministry of Justice is working towards amending new policies that will guarantee women’s right in marriage.

One of these amendments will include a new process that will have women reviewing and consenting contracts before finalizing. In an attempt to eliminate implications of coercion and to also consider the level of satisfaction afforded to brides-to-be, the new policies will grant women a greater sense of freedom.

Not only that, but the new policies will also ask women to explicitly state their contentment with their new prospective life partners, and and also grant them the chance to appoint a legal guardian throughout the process.

This is seen to be another great leap towards achieving the right women of Saudi Arabia deserve and ensure their involvement in the matters that affect their lives.

It also makes perfect sense to have them involved in what is considered to be the most important contract of their lives.
