Ministry aims to ease the processing of customer transactions through online service
The Abu Dhabi Municipality has announced that applications for issuing building permits will be available online, starting from September 2.
Initially, five permits designated by the civic body will be made available online.
These have been confirmed to include tunnelling works, cutting and repaving asphalt pavements, removing and repaving floors of pedestrian paths, car-parks and roads, cutting the greens, and pumping ground water in rain-water drainage networks.
“Upgrading the mechanism of applying for infrastructure permits through adopting online solutions stems from the Municipality’s strategy of easing the processing of customer transactions to make it speedy and at world-class standards with the least amount of potential errors associated with the handling of transactions through traditional paper-based methods,” said Abdullah Saeed Al Shamsi, acting executive director of Municipal Infrastructure and Assets Sector at the municipality.
