Pattaya: New development plan condemned for having too much "red area" and not enough "green"

A meeting heard that Pattaya's business community is calling for a rethink after a new plan for the redevelopment of the resort showed far too much red area.

 

This is the area where businesses can be established connected to the tourism industry, where construction of big condo buildings, hotels and department stores would be allowed.

Delegates at the meeting chaired by deputy mayor Ronnakit Ekkasingh said the plans from civil engineers did not reflect reality and impinged on the rights of residents. They ran contrary to previous plans suggested some years ago.

 

They wanted to see a plan like in Osaka in Japan where there was a great deal of green, where large scale business enterprises could not be established.

The criticism and demands for a rethink particularly concerned big buildings that could not be constructed because sois in Pattaya would be too narrow to allow them according to planning regulations.  

 

Thaivisa notes that buildings on narrow sois can only be constructed to a certain size due to the problems of fire trucks entering in an emergency. 

 

In Bangkok at least some buildings had to have their tops lopped off after being illegally constructed and some have been ordered to be pulled down altogether.

But.... but..... but, less concrete structures means loss of potential profit, that won't do !

Trying to emulate Osaka, Japan? What a laugh. Might as well try to bring a iceberg into Pattaya bay for ice sledding. Greenbelts do not generate revenue, and that is all city hall sees. They are seemingly oblivious to what other resort cities have planned and possess.

Pattaya is all about "hotels" and seedy service establishments, green areas do not generate profit or employment and thus are seen as useless.
