Fines for balcony BBQs in Dubai

Dubai residents found having barbeques or hanging washing on their balconies, will face fines from March.
 
The clampdown will affect anyone living in Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, International City and Discovery Gardens. They could face penalties of Dh500; say Trakhees, the organizational arm of Dubai Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation.

“We will end our awareness campaign by end-February and start issuing fines to those not obeying the law from March,” a company spokesman said.
 
Trakhees began warning people in November that they should not fix satellite dishes on the facades or balconies of their buildings; not to use balconies as places of storage for any purpose other than seasonal furniture pieces; not to hang sheets, clothes or curtains or rugs or mops or laundry on balconies or railings of homes and not to have barbecues in their balconies.
