Condo body seeks EIA exemptions

The Thai Condominium Association (TCA) is set to propose to the Natural Resources and Environment Ministry that condo projects with a construction area of less than 10,000 square metres be exempt from conducting an environmental impact assessment (EIA).

Newly elected president Prasert Taedullayasatit said the proposal, if approved, would help to reduce both the number of EIAs and the time it took for EIA consideration.
