PHUKET: The Phuket branch of the Agricultural Land Reform Office (Alro) has confirmed that more than 13,000 rai of state land dedicated to helping poor farmers is now open for limited development, including huge tracts of land to the north and south of Patong, and along the hills the line the back of the resort town.


The news follows Alro Secretary-General Secretary-General Vinaroj Sapsongsuk announcing last Friday (Nov 13) that holders of SorPorKor land may now develop their plots into apartment buildings, gas stations and food-processing plants, among other developments.


So-called “SorPorKor land” became available through Alro after the agency was formed under the Land Reform Act of 1975. The land-reform project intended to provide poor farmers with what was deemed to be degraded forest areas so that they could eke out a living growing crops on state land.
