Mubarak Al-Kabeer Municipality monitors 130 violating properties

The municipality began its monitoring campaigns in private housing areas to identify buildings violating the conditions of the building regulations and to guide citizens who own plots under construction.

  • The Kuwait Municipality affirmed that it will continue its field inspection campaigns for residential and commercial properties under construction to ensure their compliance with regulations, systems, and licenses.

  • “A Lifetime House Without Violations” campaign, which was launched in all governorates of Kuwait, aims to raise awareness among citizens, monitor violations, issue warnings, and initiate legal action against violators.

According to the reports published in the Al Rai newspaper, the Kuwait Municipality affirmed that it will continue its field inspection campaigns for residential and commercial properties under construction to ensure their compliance with regulations, systems, and licenses.

In this context, the Mubarak Al-Kabeer Municipality began its monitoring campaigns in private housing areas to identify buildings violating the conditions of the building regulations and to guide citizens who own plots under construction through the “A Lifetime House Without Violations” campaign.

The building supervisor in the Mubarak Al-Kabeer Municipality, Engineer Muhammad Al-Marri, stated that under the guidance of the Director General of the Kuwait Municipality, Engineer Saud Al-Dabbous, they set out to implement the “A Lifetime House Without Violations” campaign, which was launched in all governorates of Kuwait. This campaign has several aspects, including raising awareness among citizens, monitoring violations, issuing warnings, and initiating legal action against violators.

Al-Marri stated that through this campaign, we inform citizens that the responsibility falls on the plot owner, the engineering office, and the contractor alike. This responsibility extends to all stages of construction, as the engineering office supervising the project and the contractor implementing the project bear the largest part of the responsibility in the event of violations on the property under construction.

He pointed out the importance of all parties involved in the construction process adhering to the licenses and plans approved by the Kuwait Municipality.

He indicated that the majority of violations monitored in construction involve an increase in the construction rate, which results in restricting the violation and stopping the implementation work. The engineering office supervising the project and the contractor are also held accountable. The report is then written and directed to the legal department to take executive action in this regard.

He continued, “Before starting this campaign, citizens were made aware through publications and advertisements about the importance of adhering to building regulations and approved licenses to avoid delays in the implementation of their residences.”

Mater Al-Marabi, the Acting Head of the Violations Department of the Mubarak Al-Kabeer Governorate Municipality, said in a statement to KUNA that the work team of the Mubarak Al-Kabeer Governorate Municipality has monitored more than 130 properties in violation since the beginning of the year. The owners of these properties have been alerted, and reports have been written for others.

He pointed out that the campaign targeted a group of properties under construction in the Fnaitees area, noting that several violations were observed, such as the construction of additional floors that were not registered in the license. As a result, construction on these properties would be halted, and a warning would be issued to the property owner, instructing them to contact the municipality to rectify the violations before a violation report is registered.

Al-Marabi added that, based on the municipality’s instructions and regulations, the auditing and violations follow-up management team conducts periodic field campaigns to monitor violations and alert their owners.

He explained that the campaign aims to educate citizens about the importance of adhering to regulations, security, and safety requirements in construction.

Additionally, it emphasizes the need for buildings to conform to the licenses issued by the Kuwait Municipality by adhering to the designated floors and building spaces, avoiding encroachment on state property, and refraining from causing disturbance to neighboring properties or neighbors.
