Golf courses considered inappropriate with geopark

Golf courses considered inappropriate with geoparkThough only getting a recommendation from the regent, in fact the plan of golf course development project in Kintamani continues to reap criticism. One of them is that the project to be established on the tourism forest is judged unsuitable with the spirit of geopark conservation so far. On the one hand, the presence of golf course believed by the regent to result in the improvement of local people’s well-being, it is inversely proportional to the spirit of the geopark conservation in the matter of forest conservation in Kintamani.

A legislator of the Bangli House, Ida Bagus Santosa, said on Monday (Oct 21) that golf course construction project scheduled to annex the tourism forest land was much not in line with the spirit of forest conservation. As it had been known, one of the important points put into discourse so far related to the geopark was to conserve the Batur caldera area including the forest land in order to remain sustainable. But in reality, the discourse was actually inversely proportional to the golf course development plan where the regent recently said if the golf course development would utilize the area of tourism forest. As consequence, it would certainly have an impact on the change in the forest area including the Batur caldera boasted.

He considered that so far the interests of investors were always on top of people’s interests. Even, the people’s welfare seemed to only be used as a reason to annex the strategic state land. Besides, he also regretted the issues related to the state asset that had never previously involved the Bangli House. Actually, recommendation of the House was something absolutely required since the beginning before commencing any activity. “Until now, the Bangli House is never invited to talk about it and has not issued any recommendations,” said Santosa.

Other than Santosa, a number of local residents even began to worry about the plan to build the golf course. They worried the golf course would even eliminate their jobs so far. With the construction of the golf course, the surrounding area would be made as sterile as possible. Truck drivers usually passing by would no longer be allowed to pass in the region. As a result, local traders would no longer be able to sell. (BTN/kmb)
