January 09, 2019

Muscat Municipality has decided to allow commercial activities in residential buildings for one more year.

“In response to citizens’ wishes, the municipality has decided to allow commercial activity in residential buildings for one year, provided that both parties sign an agreement that they will not renew the lease contract,” the civic body stated.

“The decision was based on the recommendations of the Muscat Municipal Council,” added the statement.

In July last year, Muscat Municipality had announced that all commercial activities in residential buildings in certain areas would have to be stopped by the end of 2018.
