Six building owners were booked and 30 others were warned in Abu Dhabi of untidy surfaces, and several major violations were recorded, namely storing materials, disposing of waste and placing television antennas on rooftops.

 

All of these "distort the appearance of the city," the municipality said during a crackdown that saw more than 150 commercial and residential buildings.

"Storing the materials on rooftops is a health and safety threat," municipal officials said.

They added that the campaign aims to "preserve the cultural appearance of the city and eliminate the practice of dumping waste on rooftops."
