Many Kuta Villas Lack Security

Local Government Survey of South Kuta Villas Reveal Security Shortcomings.

(6/19/2006) A report in the Indonesian-language daily Denpost 17/6) reports that the current census of villas in the South Kuta area by local officials is bringing to light serious shortcomings in security.

According to the Coordinator of the Villa Survey Team for South Kuta, Drs. I Nyoman Adi Wiratma, of the 110 villas surveyed to date only 36 villas (33%) employ security staff. Moreover, according to Wiratma, the security staff employed are ineffectively deployed with many only working in the evening hours.

Missing Building Permits

In the course of the same survey of South Kuta villas, officials found that only 50.91% of the villas surveyed were able to produce official building permits (IMB), suggesting that nearly half of the villas are illegal structures built without reference to local building and zoning regulations.

Meanwhile, a member of the survey team, I Putu Eka Marthawan, commented that security at South Kuta villas was far below standards, threatening to damage Baliís image should those staying in these accommodation be the victim or the perpetrators of criminal activity.
