Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has voided principle permits to stop work on 13 man-made islands in the controversial Jakarta Bay land reclamation project.

Anies said that the decision on Wednesday was made after hearing a recommendation from the Northern Coast Management Coordinating Agency (BKP-Pantura).

“Based on the recommendation, we can assure you that we will stop the development of the 13 reclaimed islands,” Anies told reporters at City Hall, as reported on the administration’s website. 

The governor was referring to islets A, B and E, which are being developed by PT Kapuk Naga Indah; islets I, J and K, developed by PT. Pembangunan Jaya Ancol; islet M, developed by PT. Manggal Krida Yudha; islets O and F, developed by PT Jakarta Propertindo; islets P and Q, developed by KEK Marunda Jakarta; islet H, developed by PT Taman Harapan Indah; and islet I, developed by PT Jaladri Kartika Pakci. 

Anies added that the existing islets would be used for the benefit of the public, without specifying what that meant.

Anies claimed the developers, which have already obtained principle permits, had failed to follow the correct procedures, including with regard to submitting the design and Environmental Impact Analysis (Amdal) reports. (fac)
