Stop building now - luxury Phuket villa named and shamed on social media ordered halted

Stop building now - luxury Phuket villa named and shamed on social media ordered halted

PHUKET: -- Building at the luxury villa in Phuket that we featured yesterday that was ruining the view at Krathing cape has been halted.

 

Following pictures that were posted on social media the local Rawai mayor went with his minions and soldiers to investigate.

 

And they found a host or irregularities.

 

But if people wanted the structure pulled down they will be disappointed.

 

There is permission to build but the owner, from Bangkok, has exceeded height limitations and certain other aspects of the development.

 

Mayor Arun Sofat scurried into action as social media started getting on his back. He checked his GPS and found that the building was too high and there was a car park not in the plans.

 

Apparently regulations state that a building only 20 meters from the sea can only have a height of six meters. They have to be 50 meters back before the height can be 12 meters, reported Manager.

 

So building work has been suspended. Anan Janthamas - the representative of the owner - said all the matters would be complied with.

 

He said the owner was a Bangkok man and the property was on his land. It will comprise four buildings with two bedrooms each and include two swimming pools. It is being built at a cost of 20 million baht, excluding decorations.

 

It is due for completion in April next year.

 

Anan said it was news to him that you had to have permission for a car park but so be it, that will be sorted too.

 

Many people had complained on social media that the building blights views of the sunset in the area. Drone footage of the development has also emerged online.

All matters to be complied with?

 

Those columns seen in the photos are less than a metre from the edge of a public road when they should be at least 3 metres away...

Looking at the opposite side of the road, one could just sit back and hope for a landslide of a huge scale, because as many have posted, the problem will go away as some top brass will tell the local Rawai mayor that the envelope was bigger than his position would ever have to stop the build, and if he wants that promotion and cut his been getting since day one, he will have to turn the other way.

The Baan Krating guy that already had a resort illegally built while Thaksin was in? No, no, this guy has huge pull and extra deep pockets. Envelope for you, oh, you too, of course you, done deal. I guess the news gets the mayor and extra thick envelope  to throw it back to Sea Gypsy harrassment :happy:

I have seen the title map of this area from my attorney years ago. Its government forest land. But envelopes can magically produce a chanote land title deed. If social media pressure continues this should come to light.

Yes I agree. There has been a lot of things built in Rawai that a blind eye has been turned too.

 I do like like the part about the mayor scurrying around.

Caught like the a rabbit in the headlights. If you know what I mean

Perhaps the local authorities will co-operate  and move the road.   "In the intersts  of improved safety for road users , of course!"   Surel;y that would be the very leas tthe l;ocals coud do for a HiSo from Bangers.
