Abu Dhabi municipality warns against illegal upper decks

(MENAFN- Khaleej Times) The Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADCM) has warned all owners of commercial industrial and occupational facilities not to use such facilities as accommodation.

The warning comes after it was found that many small business employees and even managers particularly in industrial areas prefer to live in their own workshops or office rooms.

The municipality has called on organisations to remove unlicensed upper decks in commercial outlets and occupational facilities. The move would ensure workers' safety prevent accidents and injuries provide adequate health conditions and maintain public health and safety.

The call is made in the context of the municipality's campaign targeting areas within the precincts of Al Wathba Municipal Centre to ensure the commitment of commercial and occupational facilities as well as warehouses to provide decent living for their workers and not use upper decks for lodging sleeping or storing.

This inspection campaign so far resulted in serving 10 offences and 177 warnings pursuant to Law No. 16/2009 which prohibits adding tools equipment or devices making changes to decorations or facades of commercial establishments (such as chimneys restaurants gas cylinders awnings air conditioners lighting works) without a permit or using these overhead decks for lodging sleeping or storing areas which fall short of safety requirements.

Offenders are offered a one-week grace period to redress the conditions and remove additions and causes of offences in order to avoid possible legal proceedings. Recurrent violators will be served judicial transgressions.

The municipality will continue its inspection campaign to stop additions and partitions of existing structures without permits be it in villas flats residential or commercial buildings.
