Firms will be allowed to construct houses
Accommodation for workers
KUWAIT CITY, April 16: The Public Authority for Industry has been working toward allowing companies and factories to construct houses for their workers within the industrial areas where they operate, and construction permit should be secured from Kuwait Municipality to authorize the workers’ accommodations, reports Al-Qabas daily.
In this context, Minister of Commerce and Industry Khalid Al-Roudhan issued a decision to lay down rules and regulations governing the allocation of sites for services in industrial areas for stores, truck parking lots or accommodation for workers.
The decision indicates the period of allocation will be temporary not exceeding a duration of three years and renewable and open to extension depending on evaluation of the Public Authority for Industry.
In case of expiration of the period of allocation and the authority rejecting an application for renewal, extension or ending the purpose for which it was granted, the applicant should vacate the location, clean the place and remove the facilities within two months from the date of expiration then return it to the authority.
The authority will take administrative action upon failure to vacate the location, while the occupier will bear the cost from the bank guarantee without any right of claiming compensation from the authority.
The temporary allocation cannot be transformed to a permanent one. It’s also not possible to mortgage or transfer it to another person or join the temporary allocation of service areas as an extension of the factory.
