Phuket to pilot restructuring campaign in Patong Beach on Nov 6

Posted on November 5, 2015


The Phuket Provincial Administrative Organization has introduced the “Phuket Beach Model” restructuring campaign.

According to Phuket Governor Chamroen Tipayapongtada, the project would allocate 10% of each beach in the province to vendor stalls, put up signs on beach regulations, display zoning maps, and set up an administrative body for each beach.

Governor Chamroen said the administrative bodies will be comprised of representatives from government units, the private sector, religious agencies and the general public.

Mueang, Katu and Thalang district offices have jointly drafted rules and regulations and produced zoning maps of their respective beaches. The district offices have decided to establish a community service for umbrella rentals for all beaches in their jurisdictions. Officials also revealed that these umbrellas must share uniform characteristics for the purpose of beach aesthetics.

The campaign will be piloted in Patong Beach on November 6, before expanding to other beaches.
