Hundreds of warning notices have been served as part of a campaign cracking down on overcrowded and poorly maintained residential areas in Musaffah. Abu Dhabi Municipality said it served 965 warnings, with 223 offences reported and 140 rulings issued at Musaffah Municipal Centre. The municipality launched the campaign in June 2014 and it runs until the end of the first quarter of 2015. The programme seeks to remove company accommodations for workers and bachelors away from family residential neighbourhoods.
