PATTAYA – April 22, 2014 [Pattaya Daily News]; Due to the heavy rain in Pattaya city during rainy season which causes flooding problems the Administrators of Pattaya city have indicated that it was not only the high tide but also the slow drainage which caused the floods in Pattya. The slow drainage is due to lots of buildings being built over and on the drainage canal.

Amphur Banglamung had sent an official team in to inspect the canal in South Pattaya which is approximately 2 meters in width. They found that there were a total of 14 businesses that have constructed various types of buildings and bridges that trespass onto the canal and have also pile-drived cement poles into the bed of the canal to build the building foundations.

Moreover, there are areas that are covered with soil near the edge of canal and some private sectors had built houses without permission, therefore Pattaya city had ordered them not to use the building and to demolish it but the entrepreneurs hadn’t cooperated.

The officers also informed the entrepreneurs and the local people to demolish the buildings within 3 days and if anyone violates the order the officers will use authority according to Building Control Act to demolish them immediately. Initially, there were some local people who had signed to acknowledge the order but approximately 10% choose not to.

Mr. Sakchai said that from inspecting the layout plan of the land on the side of canal edge, he found that it actually had a wider area than that being specified by the Department of Public Works and Town & Country Planning but after a period of time the local people and entrepreneurs had claimed the land for themselves which causes flooding problems during the rainy season.

Mr. Sakchai additionally said that no one will be exempt from the demolition no matter how big or small the bussiness is.
