The development plan for E1 includes:
The construction of at least 3,500 residential units (apartment buildings and villas) - for approximately 15,000 residents. The plan has been approved by the Ma’aleh Adummim Municipality in 2005, but at the moment it is still pending due to international pressure.
The transfer of the West Bank (Judea & Samaria) Police Headquarters from its present location in Ras El Amud to E1. In February 2006, after submitting the plans for public review and registering objections, the plan for the transfer of the police headquarters was approved.
An economic development zone - a joint venture of the Ma’aleh Adummim and Jerusalem municipalities. This part of the E1 plan has already received all final authorizations required for building to commence. The approved area for building encompasses approx. 1 million sq. meters (on an area sufficient for 10,000 housing units). It is situated in the north-east of E1, which borders on the village Anata and is adjacent to the new Border Police headquarters on the Ma'aleh Adummim-Jerusalem road.
