In keeping with an expected stricter enforced of building and zoning laws following the ratification and acceptance of Bali’s 2009 Zoning Law (RTRW), the Badung regency government is ordering the demolishment of around 300 villas in the regency erected without proper building permits.

As reported by, the vice-regent of Badung, Ketut Sudikerta, has told the press that the period of amnesty from a strict application of the zoning rules is now past and the subject villas have been built in areas not zoned for villa usage as stipulated in the RTRW.

Sudikerta explained: “In accordance with the zoning rules and (the fact) that the period for any amnesty is now expired, we ask the owners of the villas to now undertake their demolishment. First, second and third warnings have been issued by the enforcement team.” Alluding to a recent destruction of illegal structures in North Kuta, Sukidkerta suggested that judicial teams would now take similar measures and demolish those villas not dismantled by their owners.

Sudikerta blamed the need to now demolish some 300 villas on the lack of understanding by villa owners on the need to process legal permits for their building structures.

Earlier estimate have placed the number of illegal villas in the Badung regency at around 1,000. Some of those number have managed to secure building permits during the survey and crackdown by regency officials.
