Grandma or the Big Bad Wolf?

Grandma’s House in Legian Facing Growing Zoning Problems as Under-Construction Hotel Accused of Standing Too Close to Roadway

(7/1/2012) Radar Bali has again put Grandma’s Hotel in Legian on its screen, reporting that the hotel under construction on the corner of Jalan Sriwijaya and Jalan Melasti has escaped definite action by officials despite fundamental violations of zoning rules.

As reported on Balidiscovery.com [See: To Grandmother’s House We Go], the Badung government has received two formal warnings for significant zoning violations from the regency’s zoning board. A third warning, according to procedures in place, is automatically issued if the cited zoning deficiencies are not addressed. A third warning can also precipitate a possible closing of the subject business.

Latest news reports are focusing on Grandma’s Hotel in Legian violation of mandatory set back rules from major road way that stipulate a distance of 24 meters between a building and the adjacent road’s centerline.

Wayan Puspa Negara, a member of Badung’s House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung), said: “It’s clear to the eye that (Grandma’s Hotel) is violating the setback rule. Just look, the building is touching the electrical pole.”

Puspa Negara is demanding that the Badung Zoning Authority (DCK-Badung) take action. The legislator is concerned that the construction continues and is nearing completion on a building whose street-facind facades should be demolished. “There’s been no action. Building continues. Nothing’s been done,” he complained.
