Continuing his series of tweets, Sheikh Mohammed also stated that 12 neighbourhood councils will be built and chaired by retired experts who will raise the needs of the citizens to the Dubai Council. These will be a meeting place for citizens to raise their concerns but also a place where gatherings and social events can take place.

The Dubai Council website is available in Arabic and English, so if you have an idea or a matter that needs dealing with in your neighbourhood, head on over and voice your concern.
