KUWAIT CITY, May 25: The Kuwait Municipality has finalized a special regulation for camping, designed to be a permanent alternative to the temporary controls and requirements set by the Municipality’s Camps Committee each spring. This new regulation aims to reorganize designated camping sites, preventing slums and the overcrowding of adjacent camps.

A source from the municipality told Al-Jarida that the new regulations will allow the private sector to exploit sites for placing camps and renting them out, as well as establishing cafes, restaurants, shops, and halls on other designated sites. This will be done according to specific activities permitted and with a defined fee per square meter, ensuring a legal framework to prevent any violations or tampering. The source emphasized that this initiative supports entrepreneurs and maximizes the benefits of the spring camping season. The regulations also impose fines for the random exploitation of camping sites and lands in the north, south, and west of the country that pollute the natural environment.

The Legal Department is currently reviewing the articles of the regulation to ensure their proper approval before referring them to the Municipal Council for discussion and comments.
