HUA HIN: -- The Hua Hin district chief has called for action to be taken against individuals  who have been encroaching on the beach area. 

 

Many people are setting up large seafood restaurants and residential projects in protected areas along the Retdamri Road from Saphan Pla to San Jao Mae Thap Thim, reported Daily News.

 

Suthipong Khai-udom said that those who are breaking the law have enjoyed the protection of a local politician. No one dared enforce the law.

 

Complaints were made by local environmentalists that the beach was being encroached upon. They demanded action.

 

The matter has now been referred to environmental protection agencies and the military for action.

Yep, clear the lot and give Hua Hin a beautiful beach front. No traffic, no umbrellas, no sunloungers, no deck chairs, no horses, no restaurants, no food sellers, no souvenirs..... No people ;)

Why is he 'calling for action'? He's the District Chief so the responsibility rests with him. Those restaurants have illegally encroached the beach for decades under cover of powerful figures. Cleanups have been muted many times but no action. Pure rhetoric!

I always thought that Hua Hin is the beach for the highest people of Thailand and they wouldn't allow such selfish behaviour.

 

What are they waiting for now? One bulldozer can clean it in 1 day.

ok, we all know it aint gonna happen, so why bother going into print about it.

 

It happened in Phuket. Every structure on Surin Beach was leveled. You can't encroach on the King's Beach.

Looking at the photo, there are about a zillion miles of clear beach on the other side of the piers.

 

Perhaps keeping a few places for the tourists and locals to eat, over the water- limited to a specific area, wouldn't be a bad idea?
