Phummisak reveals plan for new town

PHUKET: Phummisak Hongsyok, having stepped down as mayor of one town – Phuket City – is now planning to build his own town: a community glorying in the name of Chao Fah City. The new town will rise on 1,510 rai of currently empty land between the Prince of Songkhla University campus and Kwang Rd. K. Phummisak, Managing Director of Anuphas and Sons Co Ltd, told the Gazette today that his top priority will be to ensure the entire project is well planned. “In the draft master plan, we have already separated the area into zones for different functions, such as residential, resorts, shopping and perhaps a university. We plan to build a place that has a high quality of life,” he added. “Some business people interested in leasing land in the development have already contacted me. “The first project will be the development of the Phuket International Night Bazaar on 170 rai, with entertainment venues and a shopping area. We will be launching this officially in Bangkok on Wednesday,” he added. An in-depth report on the new town will appear in the Gazette issue of July 24.
