This study provide evidence from ten informants there are eight cases as follows space utilization through a land consolidation program, space utilization in a wide & river border area, space utilization in vacant spatial planning area, space utilization for communities affected by railroad project, space utilization in spatial planning area of crop farming, space utilization with a housing certificate status, space utilization in plantation planning area, and space utilization in the vacant spatial planning area adjacent to the border of other city administration area. However, after being considered by the government in terms of public policy, the ten location permits were issued with certain conditions.
