Pattaya has given a Pukplub Canal-area homeowner an extra two weeks to clear out before the illegally built house is demolished.
Pongpan Padsamorn was cited more than six weeks ago for building the reinforced-concrete, two-story structure without any permits on public land adjoining the critical flood-control canal in Naklua. She was given 45 days to demolish the house, but on Sept. 12 it was still standing.
Meeting with building control, public area maintenance, legal and engineering personnel, Deputy Mayor Vichien Pongpanit said Pongpan will be given up to two more weeks to move all her belongings out and tear down the house.
If she fails to comply, city bulldozers will move in and the delinquent homeowner will be billed, he said.
