Deputy Director General of Farwaniya and Mubarak Al-Kabeer Municipalities Eng. Nawaf Al-Kandari affirmed that building violations cannot be tolerated, and this is currently under the microscope.

Eng. Al-Kandari said, “What is currently taking place in the two governorates is a process of listing the violating real estate, followed by several procedures such as issuing reports of violation seizures, and case reports to those concerned. From there, a precautionary block was placed on the violating property.

Judicial rulings have been issued to remove aspects of violations in the violating property, and to fine the owner of the property.”

The encroachments on state property in the two governorates are faced with severity without leniency, especially since the oversight teams have been instructed to monitor the infringement through tours or by receiving complaints. The reports must be submitted within two weeks only.

The concerned teams have taken all measures for removing the existing encroachments on state properties in industrial areas such as West Abu Fatira, Al Ardiya, South Khaitan, and Jleeb Al Shuyoukh markets.

Al-Kandari explained that he directed the oversight departments to take all legal measures in this regard, and intensify field inspections to reduce violations.

The precautionary block on real estate that is used for storage, such as investment and private housing, will not be lifted, and the basements will not be opened until all violations are removed.

In addition, Al-Kandari said the bachelors’ file is a top priority for the municipality’s senior management, including the State Minister for Municipal Affairs Fahad Al-Shula and the Director General of Kuwait Municipality Eng. Ahmed Al-Manfouhi, adding that a decision was issued to form a specialized committee to combat housing bachelors in private and model housing.
