Legal Problems Regarding the Urban Redevelopment

Main Article Content

Chakri Adunnirat

Abstract

Urban Redevelopment is a reconstruction of an urban area whose environmental, social and economic conditions have become too degraded to improve, and must therefore be demolished and reconstructed in order to satisfy the goals of the urban revitalization program. At the moment, legislations pertaining to urban development in Thailand are: Town Planning Act B.E. 2562, Building Control Act of B.E. 2522, Land Readjustment Act of B.E. 2547, National Housing Authority Act B.E. 2537 and Expropriation and Acquisition of Immovable Property Act B.E. 2562. However, all of the above laws still do not correspond to many aspects of the urban redevelopment. In this regard, the author considers that there are three important problems that should be studied. First, Public interest and Urban Redevelopment. Second, the lack of legal tools to support Urban Redevelopment. Third, the lack of financial tools to support operations. The author suggests that a new legislation dealing specifically with the urban redevelopment should be enacted for suitable and effective urban redevelopment in Thailand.
