The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) announced that the winter camping season for the year 2020/2021 will end on May 21, as the extension period previously decided by the ministry in response to the desire of many campers came to an end.
In a statement, the ministry stated that the camping season was exceptional and successful by all standards. It witnessed a remarkable decrease in the number of violations and campers were committed to the instructions for protecting the environment and public hygiene as well as to the precautionary measures related to the Covid-19 pandemic, it said.
This camping season included 31 land and sea areas across the country, and the competent authorities at the MME provided all necessary services for campers.
The MME praised the contributions of the authorities concerned in the state to the success of the camping season and their co-operation regarding the procedures and requirements for maintaining security, safety and health, ensuring the safety of the campers and protecting and preserving the environment during the season.
It called on campers to dismantle and remove all the camps before the end of the winter camping season on May 21, adding that it has assigned a specialised team to carry out inspections and follow up the process of removing the camps with the expiration of the deadline. It is worth noting that the winter camping season for the year 2020/2021 began on 11/10/2020 for a period of six months. Then, it was extended until May 21, in response to the desire of many campers.
