All 39 restaurants, clubs and other businesses still operating along Surin Beach must close down and quit their premises by April 18.

Phuket Beach ClubsEviction notices signed by Ma-Ann Samran, Chief of the Cherngtalay Administrative Organisation (OrBorTor), have been pinned to each business block along the walkway, including the international known Catch Beach Club and its sister Bimi Beach Club.

“The notice gives them 30 days to quit the buildings. If they disagree and want to appeal, they can do so within 15 days; that’s their right according to the regulations,” Veera Kerdsirimongkol, Thalang District Chief, told The Phuket News.

Any appeal must be submitted to the OrBorTor, accompanied by proof that the businesses have the legal right to continue operating on public land.

“The buildings cannot not be torn down because they are government property, built by the Phuket Provincial Administration Organisation (OrBorJor) and the OrBorTor.

“After the current business operators leave, we will manage the buildings and allocate them to those who affected by the current beach reorganisation, such as massage therapists and beverage sellers, or we will turn them into something for public use,” he added.
