Badung Administration Vows to Demolish Illegal Restaurants, Cafes and Villas on Batu Belig Beach in Kerobokan, Bali

(11/6/2011) The Badung Enforcement Agency (Satpol PP) told NusaBali that during the second week of November they would issue the third and final reminder to a the restaurants, cafes and villas located on the North Kuta beach of Batu Belig in Kerobokan. The warning letters, issued for violation of the setback rule from the high water mark, are served on violators as a precursor to the actual demolishment of any erring structures.

Prior to the “final warning” from the head of Satpol PP, Ketut Martha, insisted that his office was busily confronting the violations already prior to a recent surprise inspection visit by members of the regional House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung). Martha told the press that the first reminder to the businesses in violation of the zoning rules was issued on September 13, 2011 with a second reminder delivered on September 22, 2011.

Said Martha: “We only lack the third warning. Warnings one and two have been executed, Warning three will be sent next week. Once this process is finished we will demolish the buildings.”

According the chief enforcement offer for zoning affairs in Badung, the owners of the offending buildings were called to a neeting after the second warning. At that meeting they all admitted their violations and their readiness to see their businesses torn down by his team.

Member of the House of Representatives are urging the Badung administration to knock down the illegal structures and refuse any leniency that would allow the businesses to continue operating for an indefinite period into the future.
