The Central Administrative Court has ruled to halt construction of a biomass power plant in Prachuap Khiri Khan's Bang Saphan Noi district.
The court decided local officials do not have the authority to issue a building licence for the plant.
A group of 290 plaintiffs from tambon Pak Phraek filed a complaint with the Central Administrative Court on Dec 13, 2012. The complaint asked the court to nullify a provincial appeal committee order that allowed tambon Pak Phraek's administrative organisation to grant a construction licence for the plant.
