(6/11/2011)

The Environment Group WALHI is accusing provincial and local governments officials in Bali of lacking commitment in taking action against those who violate zoning laws. As reported by Beritabali.com, WALHI blames this lack of commitment and follow through as the root cause of tourism's unrestrained expansion into every corner of the island and a blatant disregard for established zoning laws and regulations.

The Bali chairman of WALHI, Wayan Gendo Suardana, during an exchange of views with the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali), on Wednesday, June 7, 2011, cited the Beach World Complex at Nusa Dua as an example of a major project that violates the provincial zoning law Number 16 of 2009. WALHI also reminds that from its very outset, the people of the surrounding community opposed the restaurant-recreational-entertainment complex, seen to be limiting public access to the beach area.

"This project clearly violates provincial zoning laws and those who issued permits for the complex are subject to criminal prosecution, yet, the regency government remains committed that the Beach World, formerly known as the Waterpark, will go ahead," commented Gendo.

Gendo told the legislators that, as a first step, he wants the government to institute a moratorium on development. He explained, "the moratorium is need to distance ourselves from the problems (of rampant development) in order to find a comprehensive and long-term solution." The WALHI leader said that the moratorium promoted by Bali's Governor in 2010 was rejected by the island's regents who claimed the moratorium would slow the rate of investment.

Separately, Gendo asked about the status of the Bali International Park Project  (BIP) - a large conference and hotel complex which he characterized as an "order" from Jakarta in preparation for the coming Asia-Pacific Economic Conference (APEC).
