A proposal to allow private sector companies to invest in gardens was approved by the Southern Governorate. This aims to assist in the development of gardens in the governorate.
Head of Southern Municipal Council, Badel Al Tamimi said that stronger co-operation with the private sector can yield fruitful results. He added that such a collaboration can also lead to advancing Bahrain’s sustainability goals. The authorities are also considering a plan to impose fees on using restrooms at all public parks across the Kingdom by this year.
A source in Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Ministry revealed that the Capital General Secretariat spends BD75,000-BD100,000 annually for the maintenance of 60 parks in the Capital Governorate. The maintenance works include revamping the restrooms, playgrounds and the other facilities in these parks.
