Oman: New Regulations on Car Shades

Oman Daily Observer, 14 June 2022: The Minister of State and Governor of Muscat has issued Resolution No. 134/2022 regulating parking shades outside residential buildings in the Governate.

The new regulations will come into effect as soon as they are published in the Official Gazette. They are based on Oman Sultani Decree No. 101/2020 and Oman Local Order No. 23/1992. They state that vehicle shades cannot be erected outside the boundaries of a residential building without first obtaining permission from the civic authority. Vehicle shades cannot be erected at all outside residential buildings in certain areas including the Al Sarooj area or streets specified in Annex 1 to the regulation or main streets of over 30 meters or double streets. They can only be erected if they leave a distance of at least one meter between the edge of the shade and the street. In addition, the height of the canopy should not exceed 2.4 meters from the lowest part of the interior of the canopy to the parking floor or 3m to the highest part of the canopy.

The Regulations also specify the material canopies should be made from and their colours.
