About the Royal Commission for Riyadh City

The Royal Commission for Riyadh City (RCRC) was established by the cabinet’s decree No. 717, dated 20 June 1974 (29/05/1394H) to realize the will of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to establish a joint authority that leads, supervises and orchestrates the comprehensive development of the city of Riyadh. Therefore, RCRC serves as a unified command for all metropolitan development efforts.

The “Development of Provinces and Cities Law” was issued by the Cabinet decree No. (475), dated 05 May 2018 (07/091439H). It stipulated that Riyadh Development Authority is an interagency body, with a legal personality and financial and administrative independence, and that it reports directly to the Prime Minister.

The Royal Decree No. (A/470), dated 30 August 2019 (29/12/1440H), was issued, transforming the “Riyadh Development Authority” into a royal commission under the name “Royal Commission for Riyadh City”. The Decree stated that the responsibility for all tasks related to the national megaprojects in Riyadh shall be transferred from the “National Megaprojects Committee” to the “Royal Commission for Riyadh City”.

Later, the Royal Decree No. (A/312), dated 26 December 2019 (29/04/1441H), was issued approving RCRC organizational arrangements and structure.
