The Ministry of Municipality, represented by the Building Permits Complex, in cooperation with the Urban Planning Department, recently launched the fourth edition of the Building Requirements Guide for Qatar, which contains planning and design requirements for buildings, requirements for building permits and procedures for issuing them.
The guide makes it easy for citizens and investors to know all transactions and procedures, and helps stimulate the economic environment for the construction sector.
