Ishigaki City going soft on two resorts breaking zoning rules?

Date Posted: 2009-03-12

Ishigaki City’s definitive planning and development code spells out how high buildings can be in given areas, but officials of the city’s Scenery Formation Council Committee are running up against violations from two resort developers.

The committee headed by Hisao Ishigaki is examining plans from Kagawa Prefecture Developer Marunaka Corporation, which has bought 2.8hectares of land for building a resort hotel. Ishigaki says the hotel pans are not in conformance with Ishigaki City’s scenery ordinance, which notes the location where the resort hotel is planned in the coral seashore area has a building height limit of 7.5 meters. Marunaka’s planning on building to a height of 9.5 meters, and has told the committee “we are going to plant trees all along the street so it won’t damage the scenery.”

In the second case, Nanto Company has planned a 6.96 hectares hotel, cottages and parking area development in the Kujira area. The company has advised Ishigaki City it needs about two hectares of land area for development, and that building heights will e higher than the basic scenery ordinance allows. The company is asking the committee’s understanding, explaining “the area is very steep land and very complex land, so we need to build higher.”

For the moment, Ishigaki says “we have to think carefully about this project.”
