District outline plans for the Central District (DOP 10/3) and the Tel Aviv District (DOP 2/5) are intended to legally anchor the principles and objectives of the master plan, in accordance with the Planning and Building Law.
As the area through which the Yarkon River passes is within the area of two districts of the Planning Administration, the plan was prepared as one, but was submitted and approved separately in the two planning districts. The submitter of each plan was the District Planning and Building Commission in each district. The plan was approved in 2008.
The plans present a new planning order in this space, while maintaining open spaces for the common good and preventing the formation of a uniform construction sequence in the center of the country. The plans state for the first time that the starting point for the planning of this space is the open areas included in it and not the development areas, as was actually the case to date in this planning space and other open spaces in the heart of the country.
DOP (District Outline Plan) 10/3 defines the principal designated land uses in the area defined as “the river area and its surroundings in DOP 21/3 (approved) and the method for rehabilitation, conservation and development of the Yarkon River area as per the program’s objectives. The land uses are more detailed than the ones defined in DOP 21/3, but allow certain flexibility for the planning documents and the local plans that are to follow.
Most of the area of the program includes designated open space of various types. Each designation has a definition, a list of purposes and uses that are possible for development within the designation area, a definition of building rights and provisions unique to that land designation.
The plan’s objectives:
