Seeking Middle Ground on Bali Zoning

Jakarta Urges Accommodation and Compromise to Establish Zoning Laws for Bali to Control Rampant Development.


Bali News: Seeking Middle Ground on Bali Zoning

(7/19/2010)

The Directorate of Zoning at the Ministry of Public Works is urging all of Bali's regencies and municipalities to urgently complete the ratification of provincial zoning rules set forth in the provincial zoning code (RTRW) in order to slow the island's currently out-of-control rate of development.

During a zoning conference held at the Royal Pita Maha Hotel on Friday, July 16, 2010, the Director General of Zoning, Iman S. Ernawi, called for compromise between all parties to overcome the continuing resistance to the RTRW in order to save Bali from further environmental damage.

As reported by Kompas.com, attending the discussions were the regent of Gianyar Tjokorda Artha Ardhana Sukawati, the head of Public Works for Bali Dewa Putu Asa, and an educator from Udayana University Putu Rumawan. Also attending was the chairman of the Indonesian Architects Association for Bali Ketut Rana Wiarcha, Bali architect Popo Danes, and urban planner Antonio Ismail.

Citing a number of arguments, regents and mayors from across Bali have opposed the new provincial regulations set forth in the RTRW established in November 2009. Chief among their objections was that the new zoning rules did not match with the individual conditions, characteristics and development needs of each regency. The RTRW for Bali, is, in fact, largely based on existing zoning regulations in place across Java.

The discussions held in Ubud were an effort to seek middle patch of agreement between the Governor's new rules for zoning in Bali and the seeming intransigence of regents and mayors to accept any zoning control.

Antonio Ismail told the group that Bali needs special regulations to the island's land use. In addition to sanctions for zoning infractions, he called for special rules to stem foreign ownership of land in Bali.
