Conflict with the new zoning law

The planned implementation of new zoning and spatial bylaw, which was ratified by the provincial legislative council in 2009, divided the island into two opposing camps.

Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika, with growing support from academics and environmental activists, insists that the law must be implemented. However, the regents, who have real power to enforce the law in their respective regencies, and tourism associations want the law be revised to take account of regional needs for investment in tourism and economic growth. Supporters of the resolution asked the government of Bali to stay firm in its commitment to enforce the zoning and spatial bylaw. Regulation is necessary for the preservation of the culture of the island and prevent further environmental degradation.
