(11/2/2012)

The regent of Buleleng in North Bali, Putu Agus Suradnyana, accepted an invitation from PT Hardys Retailindo on Monday, October 29, 2012 to officially open a new complex of shop houses and to lay the cornerstone for a new City Hotel in the Kampung Baru area of Singaraja. While Suradnyana was prepared to officiate at the opening of the shop house complex, he refused to participate in the groundbreaking ceremony for the nearby Pop Hotel project.

As reported by Bali Post, the regent in his speech at the event told the audience he was unprepared to perform the groundbreaking for the Pop Hotel located adjacent to the shopping complex. He called on the developer to delay the construction of the hotel, which he says is too close to the shoreline.

Although the proposed hotel project holds complete permits, the Regent says there are still matters to be discussed with a number of parties in connection with the Pop Hotel, including its close proximity to the shoreline. Suradnyana said: “This is in our mutual interest. This affects the development of Buleleng and the safety of investments.”

Despite refusing to place the cornerstone for the new Pop Hotel, Suradnyana did officially open the adjacent shop house complex by signing a stone plaque and cutting a ribbon at the shop’s entrance. The regent said the shop complex was in possession of all permits and licenses and promised to bring a positive impact on the economy of Buleleng. Moreover, he said the investor had undertaken to create a clean and green environment around the shopping complex. Adding, “I am also asking that the investor recruit people from the local area as employees, and not bring workers here from other areas.”

Gede Agus Hardiawan of PT Hardys Retailindo was apparently not upset with the stance taken by the regent in refusing to break ground for the new Pop Hotel. Hardiawan thanked the regent for thinking of the common welfare of the community.

The development of the shop house complex and hotel in Kampung Baru, next to the former Port of Buleleng, commenced in August of 2012. The project has 44 shop houses operating under the brand Singaraja Square and an adjacent area for the construction of the Pop Hotel. While the shop houses are completed, plans were to begin building the hotel after the placement of the cornerstone by the regent.

The construction of the shop houses and the hotel has been a matter of contention between the developer and Commission B of the Buleleng House of Representatives (DPRD-Buleleng) who have accused the project of violating setback rules from the ocean’s edge. The hotel’s current plans call for the building to stand only 18.5 meters from the high water mark, while new provincial zoning law (RTRWP) mandates a 100-meter set back.

During the reign of Buleleng’s last regent, Bagiada, the permits were issued and approved for both the Singaraja Square and the Pop Hotel.

The recently installed regent of Buleleng, Agus Suradnyana, was urged by the chairman of Commission B of the Buleleng House of Representatives (DPRD-Buleleng) not to attend the opening ceremony because the project violated set back rules.

The new administration is calling on PT Hardys Retailindo to reconsider the closeness of the hotel project to the water’s edge. The project's developer have used set back rules from the facing roadway instead of considering set back rules from the shoreline.
