Municipality gets green signal to collect fees for parking shades

The Fatwa and Legislation Department has given the green light for the Kuwait Municipality to collect fees for car shades.

This came at the request of the Municipality which said it has the right to impose fees after the issuance of a decision by the Municipal Council last May approving the list of awnings, which includes collecting a fee of half a dinar for every meter for erecting awnings, which is collected once in private housing areas, government agencies, private agencies, and public areas, investment, industrial and agricultural housing, and a 5 dinars fee per square meter annually outside the boundaries of the property for commercial use, reports Al-Anba daily.

The “Fatwa” opinion also clarified the prohibition contained in Law 79/1995 that it is not permissible to increase fees except by a law that does not apply to new fees that are imposed for the first time, according to which the municipal council may, in accordance with Municipal Law 33/2016, impose fees according to the regulations regulating car parking shades as an amendment for previous fees.
