Bali's House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) have confirmed that there will be no change in the maximum building height allowed in the new provincial zoning law (RTRWP)now being finalized by that body. The DPRD's decision squashes efforts by some circles to increase the current maximum 15 meters to 33 meters.

The Vice-Chairman of the DPRD-Bali, Ida Bagus Suryatmadja Manuaba, told that a maximum building height of 15 meters had "become an icon of Bali development" and reflected the development needs of Bali as a small island.

Suryatmadja explained: "Buildings can't be built higher than 15 meters; that's a do or die proposition. Our first consideration is the view; people approaching the island from the sea should immediately see rows of coconut palms. Our other consideration is the carrying capacity of Bali."

The leading Bali lawmaker called on the people of Bali to continue to provide input in the current discussions of a new RTRWP. He promised that the new rules would not be rushed through the DPRD, but hopes the final draft will be completed by August of 2009.
