It's a Jungle Out There

Denpasar Zoning and Building Authorities Falling Miserably in the Enforcement of the Law


Bali News: It's a Jungle Out There

(9/1/2014)

DenPost reports that the lack of strong law enforcement, particularly in the area of tourism accommodation, has resulted in widespread and uncontrolled of non-conforming residences and hotels being built in Bali's capital city of Denpasar.

The responsibility for building and zoning law enforcement rests with Denpasar's Housing and Zoning Office (DTRP).

The chairman of Commission B for the Denpasar House of Representatives (DPRD-Kota Denpasar), Eko Supriadi, recently complained that many investors ignore the rules due to the slowness in processing building permits and an obvious lack of law enforcement.

"Usually investors go ahead and build before obtaining permits because of the lack of enforcement by the relevant agencies," explained Eko.

Eko said the supervision and enforcement of building projects in Denpasar is out of control. He said the DTRP must now join forces with the regency’s enforcement agency (Satpol PP) and begin taking firm action.

He also complained that the current practice of giving three waning letters to errant owners and builders is ineffective, with developers using the time between the series of three letters to complete the building process.

The municipal legislator cited flagrant violations in the construction of tourist accommodation taking place on Jalan Gatot Subroto Barat, Jalan Mahendradatta and Jalan Setiabudi in Denpasar. He also bemoaned that DTRP officials do not patrol Depasar looking for unlicensed projects, but only respond to complaints received from the community.

Describing the gross inefficiency of the current system, Eko told of how owners and developers ignore rules and the need for permits, pushing ahead with building programs that are clearly non-conforming with zoning and building rules. Once completed and built to be in violation of the law, the relevant agencies seldom have the courage to order the demolishment of the subject buildings. "If this is allowed to continue, Denpasar will become increasingly disordered," warned Eko.

DenPost, speaking directly to the problem, suggests building and zoning officials do not enforce the rules simply because of illegal payments made to them by developers.
