The Abu Dhabi Executive Council has decided to offer more land to UAE nationals that will be exempt from any charges or material fees, according to the state news agency Wam.

The aim, according to a statement yesterday, was to "improve the living conditions of those who stay in such housing units, and to ease up the financial pressure on them".

The council ruled that any extra land accompanying the homes must not be used to build facilities for rent. It "will help increase the areas of land allocated for national families and enhance the comfort and stability".
