Municipal Council allocates sites for workers’ cities in Kuwait

The council is prepared to convene an emergency meeting to seek suitable solutions, contingent upon the relevant authorities moving forward with implementing the proposals for establishing these cities.

  • Municipal Council member Abdullah Al-Anzi pointed out that workers’ cities must be developed in a way that reduces pressure on investment and commercial housing, some of which may be located in violation of the laws.

A number of members of the Municipal Council confirmed that the council has played its role in solving the problem of workers’ cities. According to a report by Al Rai newspaper, the council has allocated several sites and handed them over to the relevant government agencies in Kuwait.

The members told Al Rai newspaper that the council is ready to hold an emergency meeting to discuss this matter and find appropriate solutions for it, on the condition that the relevant authorities move to implement the proposals related to establishing these cities.

Khaled Mufleh Al-Mutairi, the Vice Chairman of the Municipal Council, emphasized that the council was clear and determined to solve the problem of workers’ housing by allocating many suitable sites for the establishment of workers’ cities and housing.

He called on the relevant government agencies to quickly complete the proposed workers’ cities, as they will significantly contribute to solving many of the problems related to workers’ housing in investment housing, as well as bachelors’ housing in private and model housing areas.

Al-Mutairi said, “We have warned many times in the past about the Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh problem, describing it as a time bomb. We may also witness an incident similar to the Mangaf fire if we do not implement the solutions proposed by the committees formed to address the conditions of this area.”

For his part, member Fahd Al-Abduljader emphasized that the Council will not hesitate to take any action necessary to solve the problem of workers’ housing to protect lives, even if it requires holding an emergency meeting. He noted that “the problem is not only in the regulations or laws, but in the implementation.

In turn, member Walid Al-Dagher explained that the role of the Council is to allocate land for workers’ housing, which it has already done. A number of sites have been allocated and handed over to the relevant authorities.

Member Fahad Al-Khenin called for the necessity for the Council to address the issue of workers’ cities and to provide all necessary health and living requirements for these cities. He emphasized that these cities should be a model befitting Kuwait, far from the slums that tarnish the reputation of Kuwait and its people.

For his part, member Abdullah Al-Anzi said that the council has an important role in studying privatization requests, specifically with regard to integrated workers’ cities. He emphasized the need to study these requests and assess the extent to which the party requesting the privatization adheres to all conditions that serve humanity.

He pointed out that workers’ cities must be developed in a way that reduces pressure on investment and commercial housing, some of which may be located in violation of the laws.
