Bahrain lifts 40-month development ban on Hoora, Gudaibiya

Bahrain has lifted a 40-month development ban in the Hoora and Gudaibiya area of Manama, paving the way for further development in the area in line with a new zoning plan approved by the municipalities and urban planning affairs ministry, Gulf Daily News has reported. The ban came into force on February 10, 2011 to limit the spread of commercial activity and restrict the number of expatriates living in an already overcrowded area of the capital.
