KUWAIT CITY, Nov 28: The head of the joint committee consisting of the technical, legal and financial committees of the Municipal Council, Dr. Hassan Kamal, announced the addition of two new clauses to the private housing regulations.

The first aims to achieve justice for the owners of plots whose area exceeds 400 square meters and to make them equal to the owners of plots of less than this area, as they were previously obligated to a building percentage area not exceeding 210% or 960 square meters, whichever is greater.


Kamal said in a press statement, after the committee meeting, that after this amendment, they were equal to the owners of plots with an area of ​​less than 400 square meters, who were allowed by the old regulations to add 120 square meters to their building percentage, indicating that the second amendment relates to allowing owners of plots creating a basement or two basements with the entire plot. 

He explained that the meeting completed the discussion of the table of requirements and specifications for private and model housing buildings, known as the private housing regulations, noting that the addition of the latest amendments from the technical staff came after several meetings and work teams.

The Kuwait Municipality announced that 279 warnings were sent to safety systems in Mubarak Al-Kabeer Governorate during last October as part of a campaign of inspection tours to verify licenses and advertisements.


Acting Director of the Safety Department and Supervisor of Safety Licenses, Bushra Al-Wayel, stressed to reporters on the sidelines of the municipality’s tour of the governorate the importance of implementing laws and regulations, in addition to ensuring safety requirements in construction and restoration operations. 

She stressed the necessity of placing special containers for waste construction materials, as they contribute to maintaining the safety of infrastructure manholes, rain drainage, and sanitation to confront weather conditions.
