The Abu Dhabi City Municipality - Wathba Municipal Center, has recently launched an extensive inspection & awareness-raising campaign aimed at combating disorderly accommodation at commercial buildings in Bani Yas Sharq, Shawamekh, Wathba South, Bani Yas West, New Wathba Shamkha and Wathba North. The campaign is also intended to curb the condensed bachelors accommodation, maintain the aesthetic appearance of the city of the city, and ensure the highest standards of health and safety.

The municipal teams targeted 96 commercial buildings and issued 14 violations in a bid to combat the disorderly accommodation, which poses a real threat to community and wastes natural resources.

The Municipality is keen to continue such campaigns to raise awareness about the risks this phenomenon poses to the public health, besides educating the public about the terms & conditions governing occupancy & housing of all residential units. The civic body called on the community members to support its efforts to eliminate this phenomenon.

Fines slapped on violators range AED 10,000 to AED100,000, and recurrent violators are slapped with a fine of no less than AED 100,000 and no more than AED 200,000. In the above cases, the court may order the removal of the violation at the expense of the offender, and evicting the residential units.
