Authorities inspect under-construction hotels in Koh Phi Phi

The Army, police and administrative officials on Thursday inspected several under-construction hotels on Koh Phi Phi in Krabi province amid allegations that they lacked land rights documents, permission to build, or were encroaching on a national park.
 

They first searched an under-construction hotel on a hill with a view of the sea where 30 buildings and a large pond were being built.

 

Narongsak Patamapaneewong, the hotel owner, presented to the officers the “Nor Sor 3 Gor” certificate of land use for the 47-rai land. The certificate issued by the Land Department is a confirmation and certifies the owner’s right to the land. The owners may petition the department to officially survey the land and upgrade its status to the most-secured Chanote land title deed.

 

Narongsak told the officers that he had already applied for a hotel licence, had obtained permission to build the first nine buildings and was applying for permission to build the rest of buildings. The hotel compound, whose construction started last year, will comprise 34 buildings.

 

At the second location, officers checked the under-construction escalators/elevators at a residential building in the Ao Nang area for public safety and were told by Tambon Ao Nang Administrative Organisation executive Piyawat Chuthep that the place had obtained proper permission to build such escalators/elevators. He said his office had checked on the construction periodically to ensure safety.

 

At the third location, officers inspected several under-construction hotels that were accused of encroaching on the Hat Noppharat Thara-Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park. Pattanapong Kandee, the assistant park head, said five business operators had initially made the claim that they had leased the lands from the previous tenants who had occupied the plots before the area was declared a national park.

 

The park would give them a chance to explain the legality of their land use and related documents. If they failed to provide convincing evidence, the park would proceed to file police complaints against them, he said.

 

Pattanapong said the park had previously filed police complaints against 9-10 hotel operators for alleged encroachment on 50 rai of park territory. The park is also investigating another batch of hotels allegedly encroaching on 30-40 rai of park territory.

 

Lieutenant Narongphrom Namthong of the 43rd Military Circle, who led soldiers to join the search, said the participation of the troops was as per the instruction of Fourth Corps commander Lt-General Pornsak Pulsawat to ensure peace and order.

 

Koh Phi Phi is facing six key issues, including land rights disputes, forest encroachment, and beachfront management that require re-regulating.

If one does a search for the name of the hotel owner a very interesting account appears on Lonely Planet forum!

May give us a clue how he came into the doubtful "possession" of these 47 (!!!) rai ...
Maybe simply an unscrupulous human piece of sh1t ...?!
