Of course not, it's built over the beach.
Looks like the area past the port on the way to Stung Hav

Perhaps the letter could be rephrased as "why aren't we getting a cut in Phnom Penh?"

Preah Sihanouk projects halted
5 October 2018
The Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction has ordered the Preah Sihanouk provincial authorities to halt construction in the province without its authorisation.

On Wednesday, ministry secretary of state Chhan Saphan wrote to Preah Sihanouk governor Yun Min, instructing him to stop issuing provincial permits for construction without the ministry’s prior approval or first asking applicants to follow legal procedures and other technical requirements.

Saphan said: “There are a number of ongoing constructions in Preah Sihanouk province – some near completion – without the ministry’s authorisation. They only have the construction permit given by the Preah Sihanouk provincial authorities.

“This opposes Royal Sub-Decree 86, Article 5, Subsection 2 which says ‘construction permits shall be signed by a Chairman of the National Committee of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction upon the approval of the concerned authorities’.”

In response, Preah Sihanouk provincial governor Yun Min said he will act according to senior government directives and ask for additional suggestions if necessary.

Min admitted that provincial authorities visited and prevented many construction projects that did not have proper authorisation.

But he said they had given permission for projects as investors want them completed quickly and that obtaining construction permits from other ministries will take longer.

“They accused me of corruption because I allowed other buildings to be constructed without proper permits. They said whatever they wanted to say. I can’t stop them, but I am not corrupt."

“We want to help investors in our country, so we help them. However, I will follow the letter from now on,” Yun Min said.
