Radar Bali reports that another new hotel is under the scrutiny of the Badung regency Zoning office (Dinas Cipta Karya Badung - DCK) with an official visit to Grandma’s Hotel, located in Legian.
The inspection on Tuesday, June 19, 2012, discovered a number of zoning violations by the hotel, which have already formed the basis of two formal letters of warning sent by DCK-Badung.
The latest visit by DCK officials, however, dispelled earlier accusations that Grandma’s Hotel had violated building coefficient rules that require 40 percent of the acreage used in a building project remain open to allow water absorption back into the water table.
When officials surveyed the site they determined that the building only filled 52% of the total site, well below the 60% maximum allowed.
Among the remaining violations discovered by the DCK-Badung team during their most recent survey related to a number of discrepancies in the approved building plans for the hotel and the finished building product. Ni Lu Putu Dessy Dharmayanti (photo) cited the hotel for failing to build a roof that conformed with its officialy approved drawings; a failure to implement Balinese architectural ornamentations as shown in the approved drawings; and the installation of emergency escape ladders on the building’s exterior that were not included in the initial drawings.
The hotel has been told to quickly bring the property into conformance with the approved drawing or face the risk of receiving a third and final warnings that could techically result in the hotel’s closure.
The local village chief of Legian, IGN Sudiarsa, complained to the DCK-Badung that the building also violated minimum setback rules from a major roadway. Sudiarsa said the failure on the part of the Grandma's Hotel could add to traffic congestion and create floods threats to the roads surrounding the hotel.
