That Luang square expansion to take away hundred houses
Permalink   




(KPL) The removal of nearly two hundred houses of That Luang residents living nearby the That Luang stupa is the first problem that the committee in charge for That Luang square expansion project are going to solve.

187 houses in three villages of That Luang Tay, That Luang Kang and That Luang Neua will be demolished and the local households will be resettled in the area of Km 21, Saythany district before the That Luang square expansion project can start, according to the latest survey.

The problem was raised at a meeting held in Vientiane Capital, on 12 February between Mr Bounchanh Sinthavong, Vientiane Vice-Mayor along with the Chief of Saysettha district and representatives from relevant authorities.

The That Luang stupa expansion project and the four lanes road construction project will have impacts on 58 houses in 45 land plots in That Luang Tay village, 115 houses in 96 land plots in That Luang Kang village and 14 houses in 14 land plots in That Luang Neua village and three land plots in Phonkheng village.

The total compensations will reach more than 77.753 billion kip, of which over 8.1 billion kip will be the compensations for those affected by the four-lane road construction project which will be built from the That Luang stupa to Kamphengmeuang (City Wall) Road.

   This is for greater laos and I don't like it but I understand
what the government is trying to do. I truely do feel sorry
for those citizen who lose their house and their property. 
   This project is clearly different from the vietnamese golf
course and the chinese shoping mall and I hope that the
rest of the laotian see the same way that i do.

I have seen it here in the U.S. not just in Laos, some part of the country allow the government to take a private land for a good use for the town. But, the only different between laos and U.S.A. is u.s. give enough compensate to the local residences.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that governments can seize property to make room for private development projects to try to boost the economy. (Video: Cities can seize homes)

The 5-4 ruling gave the court's blessing to cities across the USA that have sought to use their powers of eminent domain not just to clear the way for public projects such as roads and parks, but also for private developments involving hotels, offices and retail centers. The justices rejected a challenge by homeowners in New London, Conn., who fought the city's plans to take their property for such a project along the Thames River. (Related: Court's opinion)

The ruling drew a sharp dissent from Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who warned that it will allow governments to seize any property simply to allow developers to upgrade it. "Nothing is to prevent the state from replacing any Motel 6 with a Ritz-Carlton, any home with a shopping mall," said O'Connor, who was joined by Chief Justice William Rehnquist and Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas in a dissent that emphasized property owners' rights.

The case was a key test of such rights, and of how far governments can go in trying to revitalize areas. Previously, the court had upheld governments' authority to condemn blighted property for redevelopment, a tactic used in rejuvenating New York City's Times Square and Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Thursday's decision was the first time the court ruled on whether governments could seize non-blighted land for economic development. (Related story: Seizures must be in public interest)

at least, the government makes its citizens give up the
their land for the greater good of the country instead of
the foreigners.

This I don't mind as long as the compensations are fair and at market values if not more.

This is sad news for those folks that are impacted by this measure.  I grew up and went to school across the street from ThatLuang compound.

The government should have done this earlier when there weren't that many houses around That Luang.

If they don't do it now, it'll be even worse.

From what I heard, people living in that area don't have land owner certificate (Bai tha din) they came to live near Thad-Louang long time ago and now many of them have money to build new house (concrete) the government didn't issue any permit for large building due to affraid it will affect the Thad-Louang during construction also it is becomming crowded and lots of traffic passing the area wich also makes vibration and land settlement behind Thad-Louang.

House owners will be compensate for their buildings but not for the land, they will be given new land approx. 20x40m 20km from VTE. 13sth road.
