From among the estimated 711 commercial villas operating in Bali at the moment, 500 among that number now hold official licenses and permits. This was revealed by the Chairman of the Bali Villa Association (BVA), Ismoyo Soemarlan, and quoted in BisnisBali.

Keeping good on his earlier promise to help clean up the villa sector, Ismoyo has pledged the assistance of the BVA to help authorities conduct sweeping actions leading to administrative sanctions and possible closing of errant villas.

Of the 500 villas now with permits only 78 have seen fit to join Ismoyo's Bali Villa Association, now in its second year of operation. Ismoyo is confident that with the main legal and administrative issue facing villa operators now in hand, the BVA will grow both in number and influence in the coming year.

Responding to a question from the press, Ismoyo said he does not support the conversion of productive agricultural lands to villa usage. However, when non-productive lands, such as those found in Seminyak, can be rented out at Rp. 5 million per are per year, both the land owner and the government stand to benefit.

Including in the work plan for the BVA in the coming year are educational programs to motivate villa operators, re-greening projects, scholarship programs and donations to local school libraries.
