Dh50,000 fine for violators of 'one villa, one family' rule

Dubai: About 5000 homes have been found violating the ‘one villa, one family’ rule introduced by Dubai Municipality two years ago.

Engineer Hussain Lootah, Director General, Dubai Municipality said starting next month a fine of Dhs50,000 will be issued to those who are found violating the rule in the emirate.

He warned that no one should expect a grace period or exemption from next month.

According to Lootah, the decision to issue fines was decided after the civic body had done all that it could to make people adhere to the rule.
