Construction of Phuket coastal view eyesore resort ordered to stop

PHUKET: Rawai Municipality has ordered construction to stop on a collection of buildings likely to become a resort on a popular coastal road at Nai Harn, on Phuket southwest coast, after discovering that parts of the buildings breach the project’s building permit.

Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos issued the order to halt construction at the site at a meeting held at Rawai Municipality yesterday (July 31), where a host of officers reviewed the project’s construction status.

Present at the meeting was Capt Boworn Phromgaewngam Deputy Director of the Phuket branch of the Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC).

Officials confirmed that project, on the road through Ao Saen to Krathing Cape, was on legally acquired private land and had been issued a building permit allowing four three-level buildings to be built at the site.

However, on inspecting the site yesterday, officials confirmed that the buildings under construction had deviated from the plans submitted to the municipality.

“Some parts of the four buildings that were permitted to be built have exceed the permit,” Mayor Aroon said.

“All construction has been ordered to stop. For the parts of the construction that can be approved by law, the owner of the land must update the building plan and submit it to Rawai Municipality for approval,” he added.

“The parts that have been built that cannot be granted approval by law must be removed within 30 days,” Mayor Aroon noted.

I fully agree this is the visible part of the iceberg , I fully agree with Nasa12 and GegoryJCS , this small road should have been protected and free of any construction , bur it seems that money prevails and many constructions have been authorized the last 3 years.

I agree wholeheartedly with GregoryJCS, but then Thailand has no real planning laws and as far as aesthetics are concerned they do not even know what the word means. I Take it there has been some action following a damning front page report in Sunday\'s Bangkok Post. I\'m surprised that the Phuket News did not pick up this environmental disaster earlier in the year

It is a complete eye-sore. It should never have been allowed in the first place. It should be knocked down completely and and the land put back the way it was before. Disgusting that it was ever given approval to build there.
