Sharjah24: The Committee for Removing Encroachments on Farms has initiated intensive field visits and inspection tours on farms in the city of Sharjah to enhance the cultural and aesthetic appearance of the Emirate and limit any negative behavior or illegal practices in the farms. The committee is responsible for enforcing regulations and laws to achieve the goals for which the farms were established by applicable law and prevent their misexploitation.
Khaled bin Falah Al Suwaidi, Director of Customer Service and Chairman of the Committee for Removing Violations on Farms, confirmed that the committee has started implementing field and inspection visits to monitor violations and negative behaviors and take necessary action against violators in accordance with the regulations and laws in the emirate. The committee is implementing the provisions of Circular No. (2) of 2007 regarding the exploitation of agricultural lands for purposes other than those for which they were allocated, and Executive Council Resolution No. (4) of 2022 regarding regulating the use of agricultural lands in the Emirate of Sharjah.

The committee is working to follow up the process of removing encroachments and returning the farms to their original state for the purposes for which they were allocated. It is also monitoring the categories of violators who are illegally residing in or around the farms and taking appropriate measures against them, including imposing administrative penalties prescribed in the relevant legislation in force. The committee is also focused on preventing such violations and negatives from occurring and following up on violators periodically by the competent authorities.

The committee is in coordination with the concerned authorities to ensure a joint government work system to control violators and monitor violations. During its first visit, the committee detected some violations, such as poor storage and converting the farm into housing for workers, among other prohibited matters that will be dealt with firmly, and legal and administrative procedures will be applied regarding them.

The matter of the farm with encroachment and irregular status has been submitted to the Executive Council of the Emirate of Sharjah to decide what it deems appropriate, according to Article No. (8) of Decree Law No. (2) of 2020, regarding the expropriation of real estate for the public benefit in the Emirate of Sharjah and its executive regulations, and any other tasks assigned. The committee appreciates the tireless efforts of Sharjah in providing the best services and service facilities, preserving the environment, reducing negative behaviors, preserving the aesthetic appearance, and enhancing food security through optimal exploitation of farms and achieving the goals for which they were established without any violations or violations of the laws.
