The move follows officers from the Royal Thai Navy on May 23 posting an official ordering all buildings be removed from the site at Paradise Beach within 30 days – or face have them demolished by Patong Municipality. (See story here.)

“Paradise Beach management filed an appeal on June 9, but it arrived at my office on June 20, three days before the due date of the first notice that we posted at the site,” Mayor Chalermluck told The Phuket News today (July 5).

“After reviewing the appeal, I sent it to Provincial Hall on Monday (July 4) for an investigating committee to examine. The committee should get it by this Friday (July 8),” she said.

“The review process normally takes about 60 days, so we will know by then whether we can proceed with the demolition or not.”

Central to the appeal is that management at Paradise Beach Co Ltd claim that the demolition order was issued on the understanding by Patong Municipality that the beach club’s buildings are illegally on SorPorKor land, which is reserved by law for poor farmers and regulated by the Agricultural Land Reform Office (Alro).

“However, Paradise Beach management claim that the buildings are on a different plot that has been issued a SorKor 1 land document,” Ms Chalermluck said.

Patong Municipality refused to issue a building permit for the site as officials believed the structures were to be built on the SorPorKor land, she added.

No representatives at Paradise Beach Co Ltd were available today for comment.
