Apsara Authority has so far approved requests from 50 out of 129 families who applied to renovate or repair their homes in Angkor Archaeological Park this month.
The remaining requests are still being processed.
Apsara spokesman Long Kosal said the Department of Land Management and Housing Management in Angkor Park’s expert team had inspected the living conditions and use of the requested locations of the 129 families.
These consist of 32 families in Siem Reap city, 22 in Banteay Srey district, 13 in Angkor Thom district, 38 in Prasat Bakong district, 10 in Puok district, six in Sout Nikum district and eight in Svay Loeu district.
The 50 families given approval, include 11 in Banteay Srey district, 11 in Puok district, 10 in Siem Reap city, eight in Prasat Bakong district, six in Angkor Thom district and four in Svay Loeu district.
Kosal said for approval to be granted, the applicants must live in that area, there must be an existing construction at the site and there must be clear confirmation from the local authorities.
He said Apsara Authority would inspect the case, verify the site using 1998 and 2004 aerial maps and conduct face-to-face interviews with applicants.
He said Apsara Authority always pays attention, checks and strengthens its work from receiving requests to responding to the people. All repair requests are free of charge.
Angkor Archaeological Park covers 401 square kilometres, covering five cities or districts, 21 communes and 112 villages.
