The crackdown on villas that violate local zoning codes continues in Bali with the Indonesian-language Denpost reporting that South Kuta authorities have halted construction of the 12-unit Halcyon Villa complex on Jalan Wanagiri in Jimbaran.

According to the Denpost article, the project, listed as "Hollycon Villa" (sic) in the Denpost report, was subsequently confirmed to be Halycon Villas following a call to the Contractor listed on the Halycon Web Site. The individual answering the telephone at the Construction company confirmed both the correct spelling of the villa project and that they had recently been cited by local sub-district officials for building while permits were still under process.

According to the Denpost report, the project, which is already in an advanced stage of construction, lacks a number of required official permits that must be in hand before commencing construction. The article also quoted the Head of the South Kuta Sub-District Chief, Drs. I Putu Eka Merthawan, as saying that the project located on the road leading to the Ritz Carlton Bali Resort is located in a "Class I" Conservancy Area in which development is restricted.

According to the Denpost story, local officials claim developers have repeatedly failed to heed warnings to halt the project until the required permits are in hand with Sub-District officers now threatening to seize construction equipment if the latest warning continues to be ignored.

A spokesperson for Halcyon Villas told balidiscovery.com on Monday, May 2, 2005, that they had just spoken to the Contractor for the project who had assured them that all permits were in an 'advanced stage' and "would be in hand in the coming days."

Continuing Crackdown Across the Island

As reported previously on balidiscovery.com in [ Crackdown on Bali's Beach Builders ], Sub-District officials in several parts of the island are increasing their scrutiny of villa owners who construct projects without the required permits or in violation of local zoning rules, such as the 100-meter no-build zone from the high water mark.

The Indonesian-language Bali Post in its April 30, 2005 edition reported that the builders of the Villa Kalinka and the nearby Villa Boeddha have both received formal warnings to halt construction until all the required permits are in place with a task force from the regional legislature scheduled to inspect the building sites in the near future.
