The lands where the land fill is going to be established are located near 'E1' area where 3900 housing units are planned to be built in an attempt to expand the Maale Adumim settlement and establish a geographical contiguity between Maale Adumim settlement and Israeli settlements inside Jerusalem. The Other Plan includes the establishment of a new dumping site on 150 dunums of lands north of Jerusalem city and south Atarot Industrial Zone, near Bir Nabala and Qalandyia villages
  • The Israeli district committee for planning and building will be discussing a plan to establish a new park entitled 'Jafati park' in its agenda that will be held on the 13th of February 2012. The committee will approve the establishment of the park that will ultimately be linked with Bab Al-Magharba, through the construction of a bridge between the building and the entrance of the gate. According to the plan, a huge building with 10626 m2 area will be built in addition to an underground parking for 250 cars. The plan was approved by the Israeli local committee for building and construction on the 28 February 2011.
  • A bill seeking to retroactively legalize Jewish settlements and outposts built on Palestinian land is due to come up for a vote in the Israeli Knesset this week, despite the cabinet's opposition. The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has appointed a new committee to examine various ways to legalize the construction and cause minimal damage to settlers. The committee, which will be headed by retired Supreme Court justice Edmond Levy, will begin working in the next few days. The bill states that Jewish areas in the West Bank will not be evacuated if the legal owners of the land on which they were built waited at least four years, starting from the time settlers began living there, before laying claim to the land. It stipulates that the settlements or outposts must be populated by at least 20 families. The bill, sponsored by MK Zevulun Orlev (Habayit Hayehudi), allows those claiming ownership to seek financial compensation through the courts. It also authorizes the courts to allot the claimants an alternative plot of land of similar value.
