District Outline Plans

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.
