Zoning of land would be most contributive to the effort of controlling land utilization and change of Land function, to determine which areas may be developed and which areas may not be develop. The Director General of Space Planning, Ministry of Public Works Imam S. Ernawi disclosed this after making a discussion on regional space planning, by exposing Ubud as exemplary zone in town planning in Ubud recently,

Zoning arrangement would be followed by incentive and disincentive mechanism, for example in areas where development is prohibited incentive will be given in the form of tax amnesty of Land and Building tax or other taxes.

Ubud, which once won the award of The best City in Asia, may in this case be taken as an example of space planning for other cities because this city maintains greeneries and cultural heritage. Zoning arrangement is important for preventing change of land function which is getting more prevalent time after time, especially in Bali.

The Regent of Gianjar, Tjokorda Arthe Ardana Sukawati explained that the space planning in Gianjar was divided into five development zones, respectively the Northern zone as agro-tourism zone and arts & crafts, located in three districts namely Payangan, tagal lalang, and Tampaksiring.

The Southern Zone, namely. The District of Sukawati, as a place to develop marketing of handicrafts. The western zone, namely Ubud, is developed as zone for tourism and arts and culture. The Eastern zone, namely the District of Gianjar and Blahabtub is developed into spots and tourism center.

In a discussion it was unveiled that the Regents and Mayors of Bali rejected the RTRW space planning launched in November 2009 because in their opinion the RTRW Regional Regulation was not in accordance with the regional condition and characteristics and the interest of each region. And yet the Regional Regulation of RTRW of Bali was schemed up and developed on the basis of Java-Bali space planning.
