Dubai fines hotels for unapproved renovations

The Dubai municipality has issued 1,264 fines in 2012 against owners and operators of hotels and hotel apartments in the emirate for making building modifications without attaining the required building permits, Gulf News has reported. "We have not noticed any increase in the number of violations compared to previous years, as the majority of hotels are aware of the municipality's rules and regulations," said Jaber Al Ali, head of Building Inspection Department at the municipality. "The violations included changing the use of parking spaces and using it for other facilities, adding restaurants, converting bedrooms and conference rooms into offices, gyms, and phone rooms, and vice versa," he said.
