Batam Authority seeking private developers of apartment

Batam (ANTARA News) - The Batam Authority will seek other developers to build private apartment houses if those who had been granted land permits still had not started building their projects for lack of profit reasons.

"We will tell them to return the permits so that we could give them to truly serious developers," Director of Workers` Residences and Social Development of the Batam Authority Fitrah Kamaruddin said in Batam on Monday.

Right now it has been more than three years that 52 developers had control of plots of land of the Batam Authority for private apartment houses.

"It was only in Batam Centre Park that private developers cooperated with PT Jamsostek and State Savings Bank (BTN) in building apartment houses," he said.

Batam has a population of 1.025 million people, including 300 thousand industrial workers, but only 10 thousands of them have apartment houses.

Those who are not staying at the dormitories of their industries, had to rent type-21 houses, while subcontract workers are allowed to stay at room of shop houses.
In the meantime, some formal workers are staying or renting rooms in illegal residential complexes built on government land.

The Batam Authority, Fitrah added, has built apartment houses in strategic areas to enable the workers to reduce their transportation expanses, enjoy electricity, clean water, and security.

The Batam city administration has in mid-2009 completed the construction of four apartment buildings with 390 family rooms in Sei Harapan village, Sekupang, side by side with four apartment buildings built several years ago under the management of Batam Authority.

Some of the tenants of the Batam Authority apartment houses have moved to those of Batam city administration which Fitrah said were actually built for informal workers with wages of less than Rp 2 million per month.

"This is obviously to our detriment", he said.

The tenants of the formal sector, he said, disagreed with the consensus between the Batam city administration and the Batam Authority, namely that the Batam city administration apartment houses in Sei Harapan were built to remove the illegal houses.

The Batam Authority has repeatedly warned the management of the Batam city administration apartment houses in Sei Harapan to obey the agreement and the task of removing the illegal settlements.

"No improvements are in sight, except promises," Fitrah said. (*)
