The Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADM) will soon demolish abandoned and dilapidated buildings in the city suburbs and other areas of the emirate.

It called upon landlords to cooperate with the municipality to obtain permits for demolishing those buildings as soon as possible, according to a press communique from ADM.

Musabbah Mubarak Al Murar, acting general manager of Abu Dhabi Municipality, issued the administrative resolution regarding the evacuation and demolition of abandoned buildings that are unsafe for habitation and distort the general appearance of Abu Dhabi city and its suburbs.

The Municipality decided on the removal of 21 abandoned and dilapidated buildings including five buildings in Al Khatam, 15 buildings in Baniyas and one building in Al Shahama.

The Municipality gave owners of the abandoned buildings a grace period to complete the demolition procedures immediately after the municipal inspectors surveyed these buildings and declared them unfit for occupation and notified property owners.

The Municipality is moving ahead with the removal of these abandoned buildings as part of a plan to be supervised by a committee entrusted with following up the demolition and removal of the rubble. The municipality will ensure that the removal process will minimise environmental pollution and disturbance to the owners of the houses adjacent to the demolition sites.
