UAE: Abu Dhabi Municipality deliver communal homes
Huge turnout and streamlined processes contribute to handing over 60% of targeted accommodations
Abu Dhabi Municipality (ADM) handed over communal houses to the citizens, as a part of the vision for handing 1,463 residential units, and 2,432 land plots in the UAE capital.
On the first day of the handing over, the municipality succeeded in handing over more than 60% of the accommodation, and is seeking to deliver all accommodations in as quickly as possible, on the availability of recipients and whether conditions enable them to report to the municipality to complete the handing over procedures.
HE Musabbah Mubarak Al Murar, general manager of ADM, expressed his delight and honor to hand over keys of new houses to the residents by himself, and oversee the handing over process.
Al Murar said: “The wise path set by our leadership underscores the high level of happiness achieved by the Emirati families which remains attached and compliant with the path of the late founder of the UAE Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who had initiated the practice of providing accommodation to citizens."
Regarding the handing over of houses to eligible recipients, he added: “Immediately after the official resolution is issued, the Municipality has formed specialized municipal work teams to serve the eligible citizens in the best possible manner."
"The Municipality has completed their files, issued non-ownership certificates, and approved delivery minutes as well as electrical connection documents, besides coordinating with the concerned authorities to hand over layouts, internal keys, and schematic engineering drawings. We will also provide the eligible citizen with maintenance companies contact numbers, and how to operate and maintain electricity, water, gas and sewerage systems, as well as telephone numbers of waste management companies, insect and rodent control companies, as well as the municipality’s telephone number and other relevant parties so that they can report any malfunctions, send observations or request maintenance."
He continued: “Due to the massive number of beneficiaries expected on the first day, we have prepared a mechanism to provide services in smooth and hassle-free manner thanks to the good preparations in place to handle the expected rush.”
To further facilitate the delivery process, the municipality has dedicated free parking spaces for beneficiaries, and deployed vehicles to offer mobile services to people with special needs at their own domiciles to complete the handing over procedures.
Moreover, the Municipality has deployed a fleet of electric cars (buggies) to transport citizens from the parking area to customer service lounge.
