Badung Zoning officials in Bali, led directly by the Head of the local Enforcement Authority (Polisi Pamong Praja), have leveled 18 buildings standing in restricted "green zones" along Jalan Raya Canggu, North Kuta. The demolishment took place on Thursday, December 10, 2009.
The Bandung regency officials were supported in the field by officers from the North Kuta Police office, the Chief of the Canggu Village and Zoning officials.
Among the buildings knocked down were two permanent structures Ė the Restoran Toba and a shop owned by AA Wiadnyana. The remaining 16 buildings were comprised of semi-permanent structures used to sell construction supplies, motorcycle repair shops, garden supply stores and bakso stands. All 18 buildings were standing in zones declared "green zones" in which no building of any kind is allowed under local zoning laws.
The owners of the building were given repeated written warnings to close their businesses and remove the illegal structures prior to the police action.
Adi Arnawa, the Chief of the Polisi Pamong Praja said his team would continue to reclaim "green zones" by removing illegal buildings, regardless of who the violator may be.
He said the next area targeted for action are buildings on the "left" side of Jalan Raya Kerobokan who have received repeated warnings from his office to demolish their illegal buildings.
