City Hall to assess lakeside housing

Phnom Penh deputy Governor Nuon Someth said the municipality would re-evaluate a proposal by Boeung Kak lakeside residents to devote 15 hectares for community housing, according to representatives who attended the meeting. Nuon Someth declined to comment on the meeting Friday, but Tul Sreypov, one of the villager representatives, said the deputy governor had said the issue would be evaluated further. Friday’s meeting followed a previous meeting last week with Nuon Someth and six other city officials during which residents outlined a plan to remain on a 15-hectare plot of land at the development site instead of accepting compensation or relocation.
