The signs reiterated the Supreme Court’s ruling that the land be returned to the public and warned against any person attempting to encroaching the land.

“No encroachment on public land for Leypang-Layan beachfront in Moo 4 and Moo 6 Cherng Talay. The Supreme Court ruled that the land belongs to the public. Structures must be demolished and anyone who encroaches this land must get out by Dec 15. Serious legal action will be taken against anyone who breaches the Supreme Court’s decision.” the sign read.

Col Paisit said, “This is an urgent and important issue, the land must be given back to the public. We have given anyone who encroached on this land a chance to get out quickly. The law will be enforced with the cooperation of both government and local residents. The land will be used as a tourism place for everyone.”

Due to the fact that, as mentioned in another comment, now more than 5 years no local elections took place, the Village Heads ( called mayor) have the time of their life.
They, not disturbed by any knowledge of problems, just order things while sitting on the OrBor Tor money coffers, and collect money.
For unpleasant things they leave it to army/navy.

Does it need reps from no less than NINE authorities to oversee this? No wonder no-one can ever accept responsibility...the left hand doesn't know what the right hand's doing.

What about the noisy horrible Concrete Beach Club Bunker next to tranquil Layan Nature National Park, is this bunker also on the list/on encroach land?  PS  such Disco Clubs should be only allowed in special assigned entertainment zones like Patong etc.

Let's wait till 15 December, and see what will happen, or not.
First see, than believe. After all this is Phuket.

What is that nonsense all the time?
'Task forces' of 30 persons to remove or place a sign only?
Lack of confidence in own authority?
What a waste of manpower! 
There is so much work to do to make Phuket 'Smart island'.
