2,500 more homes approved in Harish


Two plans will be deposited in the coming weeks.

The special Building and Planning Commission for Harish, near Hadera, has approved two new plans in the town with 2,500 more housing units, as well as public space, a business and commercial district, and hotel space. The two plans, Harish 1D and Harish 2A, will be deposited at the District Planning and Building Commission in the coming weeks.

Harish 1D, located in the city center, includes 146,000 sq.m. of business and commercial space, 7,300 sq.m. zoned for hotels and tourism, 77,000 sq.m. of space for public buildings, and 394 new housing units. The plan envisions a single building that will contain all emergency services, such as the fire and rescue department, a police station, a Magen David Adom station, and the local authorities' emergency facilities.

Harish 2A, called Or Mizrah, is for a residential area with 2,100 new housing units.

According to revised data from the special Building and Planning Commission, headed by retired Minister David Magen (Monsonego),4,120 building permits have been issued to date for the new city. The special Commission's work plan envisions 1,880 more building permits by the spring of 2016, making a total of 6,000 for the city. The Commission is planning building permits for over 11,000 housing units by the end of 2018.

At the same time, the special Commission has also issued permits for educational and public institutions, including four daycare centers, four schools, and seven other public institutions.

The Ministry of Construction and Housing and Israel Land Authority has issued a tender in the Magaf neighborhood of the city. The tender will have 12 sub-lots for construction of a total of 2,519 housing units. This tender was slated for completion by last February 23, but has already been delayed twice, and the current deadline for submitting bids is this coming June 1. Other than the revised tender dates, minimum prices for the various lots were also published, and the development prices have been upwardly revised. This revision is a result of the cancelation of the government subsidy in the initial tenders for the development costs of the developers, contractors, and purchasing groups.
