Bali's Illegal Villas Threatened with Demolition

250 Villas in Bali's Badung Regency Threatened with Demolition for Failing to Obtain Commercial Licenses.

(11/29/2009) Radar Bali reports that illegal villas in the Badung Regency of Bali may face demolition following a meeting between Bali's Chief of Police, General Sutisna, and the Vice-Regent of Badung, Ketut Sudikerta.

That meeting focused on an estimated 250 villa from a total of 750 in Badung that are reported to be operating commercially without the required permits and licenses.

The meeting was a follow-up to a visit paid to the police by a delegation from the Bali Villa Association (BVA) that told of 250 illegal villas operating with inadequate security precautions in place. The BVA called on the police to extend a program of standardized security precaution now in place for Bali’s hotels to the island’s villas and restaurants.

During his meeting with the Chief of Police, Vice-Regent Sudikerta said that the owners of illegal villas in Bandung have been given written warnings. “We given a warning to the owners of the villas. But, until now there are still many villas that have not organized their permits…we will demolish the villas if they do not obtain permits and registration,” warned Sudikerta.

The Chief of Police added his warning to villa owners, telling them that their investment in Bali is not complete without an additional investment in security precautions.
