Why would a Builder be concerned with that?

OK, I'll rephrase the question, how can you build in a national park?

I'm not suggesting you should, as the builder, be concerned about the title deed, but, what if there was something fishy about a title deed and it was discovered half way through a build and the builder was owed money. I am not suggesting there is anything wrong with this build of course.

I lived in a National Park for many years. Not one in the US - as the law there concerning house building prohibits building in most if not all circumstances. That may be the same with Australian NPs - I have no idea, but I do know that there are several NPs in the world that DO allow housebuilding within their regulation. Different countries have different levels of "protection" for the designation "National Park." It is something that is being reconsidered in several places, including Wales where I lived. In fact, the designation of National Parks (covering 20% of Wales) was being discussed in the Welsh Assembly as recently as this week - with a view to easing the regulations.

After making several agreeable trips to Koh Chang, I toyed with the idea of living there at some time in the future - maybe when children have finished their education, and other family ties are less important than now. As a result, I had looked at a website that provided what I assume is valid information for Koh Chang (and elsewhere in Thailand too, probably.) It includes a map showing the National Park there - some 80% of the island. In theory, that means 20% being outside the Park, though the terrain may not be suitable for housebuilding (or as attractive a prospect either.)

I doubt very much that ATB is unaware of the regulations, and would have confidence in his integrity in their respect.

Thanks for your informative reply Merlin.

Let me finish any input I have to this thread by saying that I never used the word integrity in my original thread.

Sorry for late reply .
The land has a full shanote land tittle deed .
A lot of land in Kho Chang has deeds now .
And lots are getting deeds , land can still be bought at good prices.
Most deeds are lower areas and not up in the mountains .Here are a few pictures from yesturday .

Looks in an idyllic location and a good looking house in the making. Personally, I don't think I could live without a reasonable fast fibre connection so that would be my first enquiry.
