Bali News: Clearance to Land

(3/30/2014)

Berita Bali reports that the regency of Karangasem is preparing a 860-hectare site for Bali's new North Bali Airport. This step is being undertaken in anticipation of continuing problems being encountered by the provincial government of Bali in selecting a site for a second international airport in Bali. 

The site preparation plan was revealed by the Regent of Karangasem, Wayan Geredeg at a meeting in his office with infrastructure expert AA Putu Ngurah Wirawan on Saturday, March 22, 2014. 

Said Geredeg: "As a leader, in principle, I support plans to accelerate the building of a new airport in Buleleng. But if this goes on for years and is not resolved, then let's look for another alternative. We are ready to help facilitate this. 

Geredeg said that his office is preparing an 860-hectare site comprised of lands owned by local residents in an area between Buleleng and West Tianyar in the region of Kubu. 

"Earlier we offered an area (for the airport) in the region of Nusa. That was too close to Mount Agung. But the (new) location is far from Mount Agung. Now we are looking at the site from the aspects of zoning and technical suitability," he added. 

The Karangasem Regent said that all the landowners in the proposed 860-hectare site have signed agreements not to sell their lands. "When land sales take place, the plots will be sold to a Regency-owned Company (BUMD) and then blocked to prevent any manipulations," said Geredeg. 

Geredeg said a project such as the new Bali airport can fail if the land ownership is not clear. Land speculators will take advantage of such situations, managing to seize land before the government can take action. 

Closing his comments, Geredeg said:  "Let's all sit together. We are not demanding that the new airport be built in Karangasem. But if this (the new airport) goes on for years and remains unresolved, we are ready to offer a site. Let's think about the greater good here; the interests of the people of Bali."
