All Sihanoukville Beaches to get Public Access.

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

All Sihanoukville Beaches to get Public Access.

Post by Anchor Moy » Wed May 18, 2016 1:57 pm

Yes, it's official, even Sokha will be open.(Or what's left of it.) That's encouraging news. For once, things seem to be getting done. Moderate optimism is allowed. :)
All beaches in Sihanoukville must be fully open to public access, including the currently guest-only beach in front of the Sokha Beach Resort, the National Committee for Cambodia Bay Management and Development decided at a meeting on Monday...

Mr. Khon said on Monday’s meeting had helped refine the government’s plan for Sihanoukville, albeit without a time frame attached. Businesses currently closer than 50 meters to the water will be required to demolish their existing structures, he said, but they will be able to rebuild farther away, so long as they do so following new design guidelines...

The area behind Porky's on Ochheuteal has a load of development going on, apart from where everyone has trashed the shrubs ready to move back. New roads going in and Kahuna bar screwed over for access. Don't know how much he's lost on that

And the Rich Resort? How about Queenco? 50M would be mid casino. How about my favorite filthy trashy smelly beach. Yeah, that one where the White Rabbit & Korean restaurants are. At least a dozen shacks. Hawaii.

It's true that there are a couple of interesting phrases there:
albeit without a time frame attached
So, one day, maybe...

This is also interesting :
so long as they do so following new design guidelines.
?? Who's designing the "new" guidelines ? And what are they ? Anyone heard about this ?

Yes the White Wabbit is Russian owned. $70K. Wow. You cause surprise. I think $20K is the current sale price. Good luck with that.

this is another 1 of those half cocked attempt at managing a country, when you make all beaches public access, you will lose some investment from companies who liked the beach to be private, and when you lose investment like these, you will lose well heeled tourist.

they should have designate some beaches for private commercialisation and some for public access.
