Patong Mayor Chalermlak Kebsub said today that the Kathu District Chief, Phuket Marine Office 5, residents, and representatives from jet-skis and parasail speedboats would attend the meeting at 10am.
The local interpretation of the rule by the National Council for Peace and Order that jet-skis, along with sunbeds and beach vendors, are barred from commercial activity on public beaches has yet to be explained in detail.
If the jet-skis and parasails at Phuket's beaches are to survive, a system of zoning will need to be implemented so that the vehicles can be taken to and from the water.
Although Patong is home by far to the majority of jet-skis on Phuket, the vehicles are also found at several other beaches, both legally and illegally.
Phuket has no overall authority to control what happens on all of its beaches, so several local councils oversee Patong, Karon, Kata, Kamala, Rawai, Bang Tao, Nai Harn and other less popular beaches.
