Now you see it, now you don’t – questions asked as building in Phuket spoils a great view
PHUKET: — Online speculation about the legality of building on a beautiful stretch of the Phuket shoreline was rife at the weekend.
A Facebook post by “Bank Thanadon” said that an idyllic view on the Nai Han to Krathing cape had been ruined by the erection of a luxury property.
“I don’t know who to blame for this,” went the post that was reported on Tnews. “”When I first saw it I just thought what a bloody shame”.
The poster said a great place to view the sunset was now blighted by the development.
Tnews reported that the Rawai municipal authorities have known about the development since complaints surfaced at the beginning of the year but the council claimed that the building was legal.
They are now coming under increasing pressure as social media is rife with allegations that the development should not have been given permission.
Many people posted before and after pictures of the area and expressed their frustration at a great view ruined.
