Title : Urban Space Planning an Approach to Minimize Land Subsidence in Jakarta

Abstract :

Metropolitan cities often face land subsidence problems due to natural and human factors, which are associated with tectonics, soil compaction, massive groundwater extraction and building loads. The uses of land have been limited due to the regulated city spatial plan in controlling the intensity and building heights maps. This study therefore aims to examine the efficiency of Regional Spatial Planning in controlling land subsidence. Data were obtained from the Spatial Plan and research sites in Kelapa Gading and Penjaringan Sub-districts, North Jakarta, by analyzing the overlay of land subsidence maps, groundwater extraction, land use, building height, and soil type. The results showed that the Jakarta Spatial Plan is an effective approach in reducing land subsidence by determining building heights according to the soil type, and by zoning the utilized land
