Jerusalem Master plan 2000. Jerusalem Municipality Planning Department.

In late June, it was reported that the Israeli Jerusalem municipality planned to submit for public review a master plan that would codify development plans for West and East Jerusalem as a single municipal unit for the next decades.The last master plan for Jerusalem was deposited in 1959, this is the most comprehensive master plan for the city in the last 50 years. The absence of such plans in East Jerusalem during the last 43 years has created a complex and problematic urban situation, as reflected by the extensive construction without permits which, in turn, have led the municipality to demolish many houses in those areas.
