List of administrative communities in Abu Dhabi

Monday 21 August 2017 (UAE)   
 
   
 

List of Abu Dhabi Municipality administrative areas, zones, districts, sectors

  • 13 Nov 2013 - some roads have been renamed as part of the Abu Dhabi Onwani addressing system. See Abu Dhabi streets page.

Development page, section dev, processing and organisation phase, resolve conflicting information.

  • List of administrative communities and areas in Abu Dhabi city and emirate - zones, suburbs, areas, districts, regions, sectors. Al Mushrif, Al Rowdah, Khalifa City A and B, Mussafah, Mohammed Bin Zayed City, MBZ City, Al Bateen, Al Muroor, Khalidiyah, etc.
  • Abu Dhabi City > Zones > Districts > Sectors > Streets > Plots (villas, houses, apartment blocks and towers, shopping malls, commercial and office buildings, etc).
  • Abu Dhabi City is on Abu Dhabi island, which is split down the middle by Airport Road (2nd Street). South-west area is Zone 2. North-east area is Zone 1.
  • Zone 6 is the Mussafah industrial area.
  • Zones are divided into districts (or communities) and sectors.
  • Districts or communities have names, for example Al Mushrif, Al Rowdah, Hadbat Al Zaafran (or Hadbat Al Zafranah). Spellings of names in English vary.
  • Districts (communities) consist of one or more sectors. Some districts might overlap (confusingly) depending on who you talk to or which map you read etc.
  • Sectors have main roads as boundaries. Roads running parallel to Airport Road (2nd Street) have even numbers. Roads running perpendicular to or across Airport Rd have odd numbers.
  • Internal roads in each sector also have even and odd numbers, starting at 1 and 2 for each sector. So don't get the Airport Road 2nd Street mixed up with a sector's internal 2nd street when following directions or route maps.
  • *Headings or pages to add, research, update - see EOF.
  • Abu Dhabi Metropolitan area or region (Plan 2030?) - see EOF.
  • School zones in Abu Dhabi Region see EOF. In Al Ain region see communities in Al Ain EOF. In Western Region see EOF.

  • Madinat Zayed (Zayed City), downtown Abu Dhabi, renamed as Al Danah (Al Dana), and Tourist Club Area renamed as Al Zahiyah, by Abu Dhabi Municipality 10 February 2014.
  • Other districts renamed - check date of change:

Abu Dhabi emirate municipality areas and regions (not confirmed, check)

Overall Abu Dhabi government authority for Abu Dhabi Emirate is Abu Dhabi Department of Municipal Affairs (DMA), or Department of Municipal Affairs - Abu Dhabi (DMA)? Established in 2007, replacing Department of Municipalities and Agriculture (check)? Website dma.abudhabi.ae (Arabic and English). Add precincts, neighbourhoods, neighborhood communities?

Heirarchy of locations and areas (2013)

  • Country > Emirate > Municipality > Zone > District > Sector > Plot? (without Regions - replaced by Municipalities?)
  • Country > Emirate > Region > Municipality > Zone > District > Sector > Plot? (2007)

Heirarchy of locations and areas (2007)

  • Country > Emirate > Region > Municipality > Zone > District > Sector > Plot?
  • Same name could be used for multiple levels (divisions, area designations). For example Abu Dhabi emirate, Abu Dhabi municipality. Or could be used in different locations for example Madinat Zayed (municipality in Western Region, and district in Abu Dhabi city).
  • Boundaries don't always line up (zones overlap municipality boundaries for example)?
Which zone > district > sector number and name system in place?
  • Updated sector names Exx, Wxx? Check.
  • New adressing system
  • 17 Mar 2013 (The National) - Abu Dhabi Island > Zones 1 and 2 > Sectors 1-xx, 2-xx etc > Streets by number: Corniche Rd = 1st St, odd numbers parallel to 1st going inland, even numbers perpendicular to 1st, Airport Rd = 2nd St. 4th, 6th, 8th going North, 22nd, 24th, 26th, etc going south.

Sectors in Abu Dhabi City (ADM97)

Zone number-Sector number - district name. For example "1-15 - Al Dhafrah" is Zone 1, Sector 15, Al Dhafrah district. One sector has only one district name (at least no exceptions found ... yet), but each district (or community) can be one or more sectors. The same sector might have different district names depending on the map you look at. Following list is Abu Dhabi Municipality district (or community) names but might not be up to date if there have been changes.

Lower sector numbers for zones 1 and 2 (Abu Dhabi island) are closer to Airport Road (2nd Street). Higher numbers are closer to the coast on either side. The sector number doesn't mean much on its own unless you know which zone it's in. For example Sector 15 in Zone 1 is part of Al Dhafrah district, and Sector 15 in Zone 2 is SKMC (Sheikh Khalifah Medical City).
