Twenty-six new constructions have been identified as having been built either without a permit or in violation of a permit along the Ngu Hanh Son beach in central Da Nang City.
According to a report by the administration of Da Nang’s Ngu Hanh Son District, the illegal buildings are part of the The Song villa resort project in the area near the locally based Song Viet (Viet Wave) Company.
Specifically, the project’s construction permit allows the renovation of 19 existing villas om the combined construction area of 5,008 square meters.
However, the project developer has renovated a total of 20 villas at a construction site totaling nearly 7,000 square meters.
Song Viet Company was also identified as having built 18 new villas without a construction permit, ten of which have reached the façade construction phase while the remaining eight are still having their foundation laid.
Seven seaside bungalows were built without permits and their construction area was found to be exceed the initially approved measurements.

According to Da Nang’s construction regulations, all seaside projects must be at least 50 meters away from public beaches.
However, the violating project has encroached within 17 meters of that limit in order to construct a concrete dyke, within which a 6,500-square-meter area of greensward has been grown without permission.
Nguyen Thi Anh Thi, chairwoman of Ngu Hanh Son District, said she had ordered her subordinates to inspect and end the development of the illegal project, but so far the developer has intentionally ignored the ban and continued its work.
Authorities have slapped the developer with an administrative fine of VND100 million (US$4,400) and dispatched a delegation of supervisors to the construction site to enforce the ban, Thi said.
“The developer has until January 18 to correct its violations, after which the district will enforce the demolition of all violating constructions,” she added.
