Bang Tao beach fence under investigation

Bang Tao beach fence under investigation

PHUKET: Cherng Talay officials are to investigate a 300-metre-long fence made from sheets of galvanized tin that was erected along Bang Tao Beach, and which workers today (July 30) were dismantling.

Photos of the fence started gaining traction on Thai social media, along with claims that the fence was encroaching on state land, leading reporters to investigate.

Workers at the scene declined to reveal who they were working for, but today began pulling down the fence, which stood only 15-20 metres from the high-tide mark.

A source at the Cherng Talay Tambon Administration Organisation (OrBorTor), the local authority responsible for the area, said that a preliminary investigation had found that the owner had claimed that the area being marked off by the fence was private land

Coastal erosion was blamed for the beach inching up year after year onto the private land, it was claimed.

The source explained that a meeting will be held at the Cherng Talay OrBorTor office tomorrow (July 31) to clarity the situation and to solve the issue.

Officials from the Phuket Marine Office and the Treasury Department will attend the said meeting as well.

Considering that elected Orbor Tor officials, elected 6 years ago(!) now dare with thick skin to say 'I don't know', is saying something about what touch these Officials have with their areas/surroundings.. Time for elections.

If there were no escalating comments and posts on social media, the fence would be still there. Amazing that Thai Officialdom much of the time still not sense the changes around them, specially the social media instruments.

"Cherng Talay Officials investigate, hahaha. The butcher, 'testing his own meat'. Investigating why they don't know what is going on in their own OrBor Tor? Well, on one scale of the Balance lays the investigation, on the other scale lays the weight of fat brown envelops. Which scale shall prevail? Outcome investigation? Filler nonsense.

Er, when you own beachfront land and the beach recedes... you lose your land. The strip of sand between the water and your land is NOT your land, that's called the beach and it's public. If the beach moves... tough titties mate.

To be fair it looks like they've realized their 'mistake'. Close call though.

Looks like another lying session is coming from the Cherng Talay OrBorTor, which is all anyone can expect. Never has a local official claimed to know so little about his area while taking a behind the scenes part in allowing anything his crooked cronies want to do. What ever happened to his corruption investigations? His entire area is a huge craphole.
