TAIPEI (Taiwan News)–Yilan County Government will demolish one of three illegal
farmhouses that have been on the local government’s radar on Thursday in an effort to crack down on illegal farmhouses that have sprung up across the northeastern Taiwanese county.
Illegal farmhouses, a lot of them look like villas, have mushroomed on the Yilan Plain in recent years, seriously spoiling the view of the plain.
To stop the chaos from continuing to spread, the county government recently decided to deal with the issue with a heavy-handed approach, and targeted the three illegal farmhouses that severely violated the regulations pertaining building farmhouses on agricultural land in the first wave crackdown, according to the local government.
The three farmhouses are located in Jiaoxi, Yuanshan and Wujie townships.
