Housing Development Corporation (HDC) begins efforts to move garages from Male’ City to Hulhumale’.
HDC stated that garages in Male’ that are smaller than 1,000sqft will be given 1,000sqft of land in Hulhumale’, while garages that are over 1,000sqft will be given 1,300sqft of land. The company will allow two-storey garages to be built on the land plots.
Many garages in Male’ are operating in limited spaces in residential buildings. The garages pose risks of dangerous incidents due to welding, tinkering, and the use of chemicals at the premises, and HDC believes moving the garages to Hulhumale’ will minimise such risks.
