Stop (Building) in the Name of the Law

Villas in Jembrana Being Issued Permits and Licenses for Non-Conforming Construction


Bali News: Stop (Building) in the Name of the Law

(6/23/2013)

The surge in villas being built in the Bali regency of Jembrana has brought attention to bear on the legality of the permits held by these structures.

As reported by Beritabali.com, many of the newly built villas clearly violate minimum setback rules from the shoreline but somehow manage to hold a full set of permits and building licenses. This anomaly is fueling suspicion of official collusion and corruption in the issuance of building and site permits.

Several of the “suspicious” villas are located in the village of Perancak, Jembrana.

One, named “Villa 33” is still under construction. This particular villa has raised protests because its distance from the shoreline is less than 50 meters while the minimum legal setback from the shoreline for all areas in Bali is 100 meters.

And, despite what is an obvious violation of building and zoning codes, “Villa 33” appears to have a complete set of permits and licenses.

A member of commission C of the Jembrana House of Representatives (DPRD-Jembrana), Putu Kamawijaya, said on Friday, June 14, 2013, that he deeply regretted such flagrant disregard for the law could occur, especially when the rules are so clear.

He was also concerned that construction is being allowed to continue on the construction of a building that  violates the law, with local officials choosing to close their eyes.

“This is not happening only in Perancak, but in many other places. Violations occur, but no one takes action,” complained Putu Kamawijaya.

He said that permits have been issued points to official collusion to break the law.

Kamawijaya said any building being built in violation of the law requires the relevant authority must have the courage to take corrective action.

He called on authorities to move against the illegal villas, regardless of who owns or back the subject projects.

Meanwhile, the head of the local enforcement office for Jembrana, Putu Widarta, said that his authority was only to check several documents that must be held by the villa project.

After he surveyed the new villas in Perancak, he said all held the complete set of licenses, including principle permits and building permits. “So everything is OK,” insisted Widarta.

The Provincial Zoning Law of Bali (RTRWP 2009) stipulates that any official issue a building permit that does not conform to the zoning law is subject to 5 years imprisonment.
