Pattaya —

Pattaya authorities have officially announced the updated rules to be applied at Walking Street chiefly to control venue operators for better organization and safety.

These rules are the updated versions of the ones declared earlier on August 30th. They were discussed and revised yesterday, September 9th, at the Pattaya City Hall, with Pattaya Deputy Mayor Manoch Nongyai chairing the meeting.

The following are the six rules that have been revised:

  1. All vehicles are not allowed to enter Walking Street from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., and large vehicles, such as six-wheeled trucks or concrete trucks, are restricted, except for emergency trucks or those with proper permission.
  2. Placing a stall or products on the street is restricted without permission.
  3. Venues are forbidden from encroaching on the street.
  4. Peddling/Selling on the street is restricted, except during the lenient period.
  5. Garbage bags must be kept inside the venues to wait for the garbage truck that will come around three times a day at midnight, 3 a.m., and 4 a.m. Offenders will be charged with the Cleanliness Act and fined 20,000 baht.
  6. Venue operators must strictly obey fire prevention measures.

A rule that is still being debated between the officials and venue operators is the restriction on parking on both sides of the street because operators reportedly want it to be removed.

In addition, the motorcycle taxi spots located within the alley will possibly be moved to the alley’s entrance, but this has yet to be finalized.

Finally, there are still plans to remove the over the street signs and make them run alongside the buildings but this is still being fleshed out. This is to allow easier access for emergency vehicles like firetrucks.

Another similar meeting will be held on October 1, 2022.
