Director General of Municipality Engineer Ahmad AI-Subaih affirmed that each residential unit is meant for one family only, and according to Law 125/1992, tenants of the partitioned residential units will be treated as bachelors even if they are family, reports AI-Seyassah daily.
In a recent discussion on the violations in private housing areas, Al-Subaih added the mayors and Interior Ministry systems across the six governorates have been coordinating to monitor the buildings in which bachelors live to apply law in that regard. He indicated the Ministry of Electricity and Water will disconnect power to all violating buildings.
The concerned authorities at the State Ministry for Housing Affairs are currently studying the possibility of increasing the number of housing units, which will be distributed annually, to 25,000, reports Al-Anba daily quoting sources. Sources explained this step is based on the proposals presented earlier; indicating that in case of approval, the distribution will focus on South Sabah Al-Ahmad Residential City.
Meanwhile, a recent report by the Public Authority of Housing Welfare (PAHW) indicated seven housing projects valued at KD 400 million are delaying, reports AI- Seyassah daily. The projects which cover government houses and units, public buildings, road works and other infrastructural services are way behind schedule. They include 1,475 houses and 70 units and main service center in Jaber AI- Ahmad City "N2" valued at KD 200 million.
This project was supposed to be completed a year ago but it's only 88 percent complete. In the same way, the implemen- tatiori and maintenance of 310 vertical housing units at north- western Suleibikhat estimated at KD 34 million is only 84 percent complete and 73 percent of the road maintenance and construc- tion projects is completed, although it should have been handed over last year. The projects includes parking lots, 185 vertical housing projects and the main service center in Sabah AI- Ahmed City worth KD 19 million.
