STEPS ON APPLYING FOR REPAIR WORKS
The electronic Repair Works Permit (e-RW) is a system-generated permit that is issued through the Mombasa e-DAMS platform. The e-RW represents the approval of the repair works application submitted by any member of the public. Repair Works entails minor refurbishments and restorations of buildings.
The departments involved in the processing and approval include:
- Finance & Economic Planning,
- Transport, infrastructure & Public works,
- Water, Sanitation & Natural Resources,
- Lands, Planning & Housing
- Environment, Waste Management & Energy
- Education, ICT & MV 2035
Mombasa County has also included key stakeholders in the development sector to participate in the assessment, e.g. Mombasa Old Town Conservation Office, National Environmental Management Authority, etc.
There are several payment options provided for the clients through an electronic payment platform (such as M-PESA, RTGS, Local Bank Transfer, Cash Deposits at KCB and others). The County Government of Mombasa receives the payment in real-time and a permit is generated immediately.
Once approved, the digitally signed electronic repair works permit is generated and made accessible to the applicant for download and printing. The permit also has a QR code embedded as part of the security feature for authentication.
