This was announced by Engr. Khalid Mohammed Al Zahid, Head of the Coastal Management Section at the General Projects Department of the municipality. He added that the preliminary study report is an important milestone in Dubai's efforts to provide maximum safety at the emirate's beaches.



The Preliminary Study Report was initiated by the Dubai Municipality's General Projects Department and was undertaken in cooperation with the Parks and Horticulture Department, Environment Department, Legal Affairs Department, Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing Department and Dubai Police. Private hotel operators and ocean user groups have also provided very valuable input into the Preliminary Study Report, he noted.



Engr. Khalid Mohammed Al Zahid noted that the importance of Dubai's beaches to its residents and visitors was made very clear in the Preliminary Study Report. "The total number of people visiting the Al Mamzar Beach Park, Jumeirah Beach Park, and the Jumierah Open Beach during the five-year period between 1998 and 2002 was 7.9 million," said Mr Al Zahed. "With the resident population projected to grow by around 60,000 people per year in the near future and an annual six million tourists are expected to arrive in Dubai by 2010, it is even more important to provide a safe coastal environment," he added.
