  • Pattaya City has a new Police Chief!

    Traffic and crime-suppression police greeted their new boss with flowers at Pattaya Police Station earlier this week.

    Pol. Col. Prawit Chorsang took over March 18 from Pol. Col. Apichai Kroppech, who was named deputy commander of the Nonthaburi Provincial Police and was promoted.

    Apichai has been a constant figure in Pattaya for well over a year now and has been credited with running an efficient and credible Police force and ensuring tourist and local safety. Apichai had a reputation of working an incredible schedule and being visible and in present at nearly every major crime scene and issue. He also had a positive reputation of ensuring tourists were safe and tracking down criminals who preyed on tourists.

    Prawit was the police chief in strife-torn Yala Province and is one of 1,450 top Royal Thai Police officers reshuffled into new positions this month.

    Prawit is looking forward to his new role and continuing to ensure Pattaya is safe for tourists and locals alike.

  • Pattaya city departments mobilize to fight bad air

    Virtually every Pattaya City department has been mobilized to fight microscopic dust contributing to the region’s air-pollution problem

    City Manager Chanatpong Sriviset chaired a Jan. 30 meeting to recap efforts taken over the previous two weeks to combat particulate matter measuring 2.5 microns or less, which cannot be filtered out by the body before reaching the lungs. The so-called PM 2.5 is considered hazardous if more than 50 micrograms are measured within a cubic meter of air.

    During Jan. 16-30, Pattaya’s air quality generally was within healthful levels of PM 2.5, but did inch into worrisome territory when it topped out at 56 µg/m3.

    City officials drafted eight action plans to curb dust involving Pattaya police and the departments of environment, public health, education, social development, tourism promotion and the City Manager’s Office.

    Tops on the list was getting smoke-belching vehicles off the road through aggressive patrols and ticketing. Trucks carrying dirt and rock also were stopped if their beds weren’t covered.

    Construction sites also were targeted, with contractors told to cover dirt piles and hose down their properties.

    City regulatory officers also were out to stop people from burning trash, leaves and other material outdoors, controlling ready-mix concrete and stop street vendors from barbecuing.

    Environmental workers were dispatched to clean streets and parks, plant more trees and use natural methods to combat the man-made pollution.

    Schools were told to spray down their playgrounds and closely monitor students for respiratory effects. Public health workers likewise stepped up monitoring of the elderly or infirm, distribute face masks and push barbecue restaurants to install filters on their vents.

    Other departments were mobilized for public-relations efforts to advise tourists, tour operators and residents about activities that contribute to air pollution.

  • Thailand’s Pattaya city faces an oversupply of condominium units

    THAILAND’S resort city of Pattaya has been highlighted as one of the country’s most attractive places for high-end properties, but a renowned consultant has warned that an excessive supply of homes could put the market in troubled waters.

    Last year, Pattaya saw 10,239 condominium units launched with a combined worth of THB55 billion (USD1.7 billion), a huge jump from 2,192 units in 2017.

    A large portion of the homes remain unsold due to the massive supply last year, Phattarachai Taweewong, Senior Manager of Collier’s research department, told Bangkok Post.

    The research department’s research showed that new condo developments in the city should not exceed 5,000 units as more than 12,000 units remain unsold. This figure was the highest since 2015.

    “The amount was highest in four years,” Phattarachai was quoted as saying.

    “The key driver of new supply last year was the Eastern Economic Corridor,” he added, referring to the government trade and investment drive approved early last year.

    Phattarachai said the market for condominiums in the city has been slowing down since 2015. Prior to 2015, the supply of new homes averaged 15,000 a year and the oversupply had softened the confidence of buyers and developers.

    “Developers should be more cautious of new supply launches as most buyers in the Pattaya condo market are investors expecting attractive yields. Very few buyers purchased for personal use,” he said.

    “If the economy slows down and yield is not as good as expected, these buyers may refuse to accept unit transfers. The new condo supply being added should not be excessive.”

    A local industry expert earlier said Thailand has a total of 454,814 residential units worth US$41 billion left unsold last year.

    President of the Agency for Real Estate Affairs, Sopon Pornchokchai said unsold units in Bangkok made of for 40 percent of the total units left over from 2018 and 55 percent of the total value.

    The supplies included detached houses, semi-detached houses, townhouses, shophouses, condominiums, and residential land subdivision catered by formal private housing developers in Thailand.

    By the end of 2018, the total condo supply of condo units in the Pattaya reached 88,330 units and developers have been told to focus on selling existing stock before launching new projects.
