Baliís Lawless Wild West

Setback Rules Ignored for Two VIlla Projects in Jembrana, West Bali


Bali News: Baliís Lawless Wild West

(11/4/2012)

Radar Bali has coverage that once again shows the disordered state surrounding the issuance and enforcement of zoning rules and building permits in Bali.

Members of the Jembrana House of Representatives (DPRD-Jembrana) are expressing their dismay surrounding the construction of two beachside commercial villas in their district that violate setback rules from the high water mark.

The Provincial zoning law (RTRWP 2009) stipulates a 100-meter setback from the high water mark.

Angered at the violations, local legislator I Nyoman Wartono complained to the press, “if Jembrana wants to become rich it has to be prepared to break the law.”

His bitter proclamation was made during an inspection visit to villas built by investors in Sumbersari Village, Melaya on Tuesday, October 30, 2012.

The official survey discovered two villas standing too close to the high water mark: Villa Ecco and Villa Melaya International Resort.

While the Villa Ecco apparently holds all legal permits and licenses, the Villa Melaya International Resort, built by an English investor, has been in operation since last year but reportedly has no valid building permit.

The manager of the Villa Melaya International Resort, Gede Suwita, told the lawmakers that applications for the necessary permits had been filed from a time when the villa resort was still in the planning phases but, until now, has yet to receive the required licenses. Suwita defended the villa’s operation, underlining the operation was well accepted by local villagers, including those employed at the villa.

Wartono responded to Suwita, calling on the administrators of the Jembrana regency to exhibit more leadership in undertaking their responsibilities. He questioned how two villas can be built in violation of setback rules from the seashore and how one villa can obtain a license while another cannot. Adding: “This is not fair. Both villas violate the law, but why is it only one gets a permit.”

Wartono argued that in order to facilitate investment in Jembrana, the regency should be flexible in granting permits and enforcing the 100-meter setback rules. Under the provincial Zoning Law of 2009 (RTRWP), however, the regencies are required to enforce provincial zoning rules that include the 100-meter setback provision. Regency officials determined to have illegally granted exceptions to the RTRWP face five years possible imprisonment.
