More protection for Phuket’s hillsides
Phuket Natural Resources and Environment Department have announced more measures to protect Phuket’s natural environment from over development.
Phuket department head Khun Ong-art said the 80-meter limit, which forbids construction above 80 meters from sea level, would remain in place, and that more measures had been implemented following a review of the existing laws, stated a press release by Phuket Ocean Villas Co.
The height limit will never be removed, Khun Ong-art said.
New regulations aimed at controling Phuket hillside development also prevent structures being built on steep gradients and limit building size to a percentage of the total plot size on hillside land, the press release said.
