On 13th June the president of the environment department Ms. Paradee and her colleagues investigated the problems at a bay in Laem Chabang that has rapidly being eroding over the last few years.
The inspection took place as there is currently plans to make a 3rd phase for the bay, which is being objected to by locals.
The locals applaud a woman who speak openly about how the local are 100% against phase 3 of the bay project.
Mr. Sonti the secretary of the environment department said that the problems can be solved by listing all the possible negative effects, by setting up a group of judges who will listen to the people’s concerns, to earn the trust of the local people, to make annual reports regarding the bay’s progress and to start the project with minimal damage on the environment.
One of the locals called, stated that the bay did not care about the effect on the environment or what happens to the locals at all, including their quality of life and their livelihoods.
If phase 3 is built then the locals will surely have no hope, because there are many problems going on right now like dirty water, erosion, health problems and many accidents.
She said that all the locals are against the project.
