After the government had issued a policy to give community land titles to pilot communities in different parts of Thailand (to help those communities development both in public utility and in quality of life) recently the Klong Koh Pee community in Phuket was given their community land title. This tile was issued after Ban Mae Ang community in Lampoon, and Ket Kaew Community in Ubonratchathani received their titles.
The government spent 7 million baht to develop the public utility systems in the Klong Koh Pee community. However, law limitation obstructed the development of the electricity and waterworks systems. Seksan Sooknuek, the President of the community, believed that the locals in his community would have a better quality of life.
Meanwhile, Rewat Areerob, the Vice President of the Labor Commission, House of Representatives of Thailand, said that “The community land title will directly help people to have a place where they can stay or work. It is also a part of the sustainable environment safe plan and also of land management.”
