Goodbye Grandma?

Bali Legislators Want Grandma Hotel in Legian Closed for Permit Violations


Bali News: Goodbye Grandma?

(8/17/2012)

Tensions appear to be building between the owners of Grandma Hotel Legian, Bali and members of the Badung Regency House of Representatives (DPR-Bandung), with legislators now openly calling for the closure of the new hotel and the revocation of its operating permits.

The hotel, accused of a range of infringements on licenses issued during its construction phase, was formally summoned on Monday, August 13, 2012, to answer complaints in the presence of various government agencies including the Zoning Board (Dinas Cipta Karya), Regency Streets and Roadway Department (Dinas Binas Marga), Regency Tourism Service, Public Order Agency (Dinas Tramtib), Local Enforcement Agency (Satpol PP) and community leaders in Legian. Representing the new hotel before the assembled legislators and bureaucrats was the owner’s representative, Junaedi.

Leading the meeting was the chairman of the DPRD, I Nyoman Giri Prasta, in a proceeding that saw a number of angry lawmakers launching pointed insinuations regarding the hotel project. Accusing the hotel of violating a number of regulations, the House members demanded the revocation of its licenses and permits.

As reported by Radar Bali, I Made Duama, a member of Commission A from the DPRD-Badung, asked the regency to seriously consider revoking the operating permits for Grandma’s Hotel Legian. Responding to a large number of complaints from the local community, Duama said: “That’s what I recommend (revoking the operating permit). Because the number of violations is many.”

Among the violations brought to the owner’s attention at the meeting were the failure to meet the open area requirement (coefficient factor); completed construction not in keeping with the approved plans; a lack of parking facilities; damage caused to public curving and public drainage due to the hotel’s construction; and the fact that the hotel commenced operations before receiving the necessary permit.

Duama added: “This is sufficient proof of the violations that have been committed. And, because the violation are principal in nature, the permits can be revoked.”

The hotel is being accused of ignoring warnings issued by the local community, and offending the tolerance of the project's neighbors by failing to undertake promised steps to bring the hotel into conformance with the law. Similarly, the hotel has also ignored three written warnings issued by Badung zoning officials.

An additional voice for closing the hotel came from a member of Commission C, I Wayan Puspanegara. He demanded that the four permits already held by the Grandma’s Hotel in Legian all be reviewed – namely, the principal permit, the building permit (IMB), the operating permit (Situ HO) and environmental permits (UKL/UPL). Puspanegara claimed the hotel had committed fatal mistake in commencing operations by renting 52 of the 112 rooms in the hotel before a formal and final operating permit was issued.

The meeting did not take a final decision in the case, with the Zoning Board indicating a positive response to the lawmaker’s recommendations for closure, which must now be considered at the executive level.
