The news follows an inspection of the site by officials last Wednesday (Apr 24), after which it was confirmed that the building was illegal as it contravened the ban on all construction above 80 metres above sea level. (See story here.)

“Kathu Mayor Chaianan Sutthikul on Monday (Apr 29) signed an order to suspend construction and for the building to be removed within 30 days,” Tassanee Saetong, Chief Administrative Officer (Palad) at Kathu Municipality, confirmed to The Phuket News.

“Officers from Kathu Municipality have posted the order on the door of the luxury mansion to inform the owner so that the owner can comply,” she added.

“After 30 days, if the owner of luxury mansion still has not ceased construction and removed the building in accordance with the order, we will file a formal complaint with the police,” Ms Tassanee said.

Amnuay Pinsuwan of the Phuket Provincial Land Office declined to give an appraisal of the value of land.

Instead, he referred The Phuket News to check through the Treasury Department website listing all Chanote titles validated in the country. (See here and here.)

 

The website gives the official Land Register value for the site as B1,000 per talang wah (four square metres), giving the prized hilltop plot of 10 rai, 16 talang wah (totalling 4,016 talang wah) an official land value of B4,016,000.

Mr Amnuay also declined to speculate what the property would be valued at if the luxury mansion were completed.

After 30 days not removed? Than 'we' file a complaint with the police. Wow, that will help!  Sure not. Handing the matter over to RTP makes the case getting landed  in RTP quick sand for a few years. Great manoeuvre! The largest envelopes are already stand by in order to handle this care fair to all parties.

They osted the notice on the door instead of presenting it to the owner, who can now deny ever receiving it. Classic. The Burmese workers have probably used it for bog roll by now.
