Existing parking shades must meet DMT requirements by October 2022
Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi residents can now apply to install outdoor parking shades in residential areas, following the launch of a new service by the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT).
The DMT has additionally called upon existing owners of parking shades or canopies in public areas to remedy the design of existing shade structures, based on DMT’s Parking Shades Permit guidelines, within the next year.
In a statement, the DMT said the new permits aim to organise Abu Dhabi’s infrastructure and contribute to the sustainable development of residential communities. The permit system is available on the DMT’s Smart Hub digital services platform, and includes drawing and documentation approvals for applicants.
