Abstract :

This study concentrates on the development policy of a new town in the district. This study examines how the policy processes that take place in the development of a new town in the related district. The research looked at how the forces of local elites that exist within the district coloring up the process of new town development policy. The theories used to explain the results of the conducted research are the policy theory and elite theory.The approach used in this study is qualitative, whereas the research location is in the District of Kediri. This district is trying to increase its competitiveness and potential through the development in all fields, and the most prominent is the development of a new town. This study uses the purposively determined informant technique. Data is collected by conducting interviews and observations. Furthermore, this study finds that the basic idea of developing the Simpang Lima Gumul area as new town came from a government elite, especially the political elite. New town development policy produced by the related elite has an elitist model, and therefore, there exists inappropriateness between the concept of development with the culture of the surrounding community, as well as the consistency dilemma on the development of a new town.
