Does anyone know when the Junta de Almeria will be approving the Albox PGOU ?
After public consultation the Town Hall forwarded the proposed plan to the Junta just before Christmas but since then I have not heard or seen anything on the subject.

I can’t help with your specific enquiry but perhaps the Forum members would be interesrted to know that in the Canaries a European requirement for a very detailed environmental impact study and evaluation relating to planning documents was recently brought into law (Ley 9/2006 de 28 abril). I assume it will also be brought into effect eventually throughout Spain (if not already done so) and will mean General Plans of Ayuntamientos cannot be approved before complying with this environmental requirement. The study and evaluation is the responsibility of the relevant local authority and has to be drafted in a manner easily understood since it has to be placed open to public consultation and comment prior to approval.
Already on Fuerteventura the Green Party is calling for the Cabildo’s pending Special Tourism Development Plan to be withdrawn until the new law is complied with. THe Cabildo is the island government and their pending plan covers the whole of Fuerteventura.
Perhaps legal members of the Forum may be able to elaborate on the situation with regard to the Peninsula.

Mark we are buying on the Almanzora Country Club in Cuevas, does this mean they wont be able to restart building till 2007 or even 2008, our house is already six months late.

I dont think this project will ever get built. I know of someone who has been waiting 16 months now for licence. I dont think it will every get it. YOu are better of trying to get your deposit back. i hope you have only paid €3000 or so so far !!!
- June 19, 2006 at 4:06 pm #62889
As far as we know the Junta has provisionally approved the Licence and now the new plan has to be resubmitted to the town hall for the final rubber stamp if anyone knows any thing else please let us know.
- June 19, 2006 at 4:07 pm #62890
They licence has been “provisionally approved” for at least a year. I heard that the land is clasified as rustic, and the probelm is getting it re-classified. It may never happen, sorry. Too cheap to be true

God I hope your wrong, I will dig out the last letter we recived after they had the meeting at the end of March and put the details on here.
Thanks for replying.
- June 19, 2006 at 4:15 pm #62893
I’m sorry, I can’t answer that. I can only pass on the general information I have been able to find out. I’d love to be able to clear this up for you, as I’m sure it’s a worry, but there’s not much more I can do. You would need to speak to an architect or lawyer with expertise in the area, who is up to date with the latest news.

The PGOU for Cuevas was submitted to Almeria, for approval, on the 31st of March of this Year. ACC was included in the PGOU. There have been no objections to the PGOU which shows the land as urbanisable. The final ‘rubber stamping’ is thought to be imminent (by my lawer who, as Mark suggests, is local, expert, and up to date).
- June 19, 2006 at 5:56 pm #62901
Thanks for that feel A bit better now.
- June 19, 2006 at 6:02 pm #62902
You’re more than welcome. BTW, although I am buying in Cuevas, I am not buying on the ACC.
- June 19, 2006 at 10:02 pm #62910
Hi AAA where are you buying in Cuevas area ? Not Pozo by any chance?
Only we have the same problems there waiting for decisions from Junta etc , no one I speak to knows anything about the Pozo site no information at all. Wondered if you new anything.
The 39 houses there and the owners are all in limbo have been now for months and months. I just don’t know how its all going to turn out.
- June 19, 2006 at 11:05 pm #62923
Hi axwhale. I’m buying one of the apartments that are being built on the left, just before the bridge as leave Cuevas heading towards Pozo and ACC. We are in the same situation as youself and Maureen, i.e. waiting for the PGOU to be passed.
Here is a link to the B.O.P. Almeria, where the submission of the PGOU is recorded.

First of all let me inform you you that you are very wrong in what you say on your post maybe you should see some of the many many photos of ACC as there is quite a lot built already. It is true that the building has been stopped but that is the best thing that could have happend to and for all of the owners on ACC as now it will be LEGAL and with only some 2.300 homes
It may never happen, sorry. Too cheap to be true
I dont think this project will ever get built
This is a copy of what is on the the BOEA
This has been posted (In English) on the ACC forum web site which is for owners of ACC only
(In the Topic News from Charles) I don’t hide behide any name as that is my name and I am proud of it and I only post on that site things which are 100% true never do I post rumors as they are of NO help to anybody and only cause pain
On that site you will be able to get to know owners of ACC it is not an advertising web site it is a private forum for owners only of ACC
Only if you are buying on ACC can you join this forum
It is a shame that so many people have bought on ACC and don’t even know about the ACC OWNERS FORUM so here is your chance to get to know about the people who are going to be living with you in ACC and even meet up with them in England as they have already had meetings and now are going already planning a weekend Meet & Greet one for November in Birmingham
Here is a link to join your new neighbours in the ACC Spain

many thanks for taking the trouble to look into the subject of the Albox PGOU. It is greatly appreciated
- June 19, 2006 at 11:18 am #62883
I asked a local in the business by email. This was the response:
“Regarding the Albox PGOU and urban planning in general, there is a lot to say. In the past several legal issues arise when the Ayuntamiento decided to give construction permits almost freely in the rural areas ( outside the center planning area ). There must be now more than 500 units illegally built. As a consequence, la Junta de Andalucía issue a decree banning the Ayuntamiento and legally forbidding him to keep on acting as urban planning authority for the non urban land within the Albox municipal boundaries. This decree took effect in early 2004 and several officers and the public notario were impeached.
After that, the council continue with its PGOU drafting which is due, as for all the towns in Andalucia, by 2007. An initial approval was never reached due to some discrepancies between the former planning law ( normas subsidiaries ) and the new regulations brought by the LOUA, they’ve just decided to stop all the licenses in the urban area until de PGOU were approved. The latest news I’ve got is that they are going to speed up the process by splitting it into to phases. The first one, to be finalised by summer (they say), will include the planning for all the land located in the actual center of the town, that is, land that was already “urbanizable” or was in the process to be classified as “urbanizable”. After that they will continue with the new extension ( golf courses, new developments, etc.) including the illegal constructions that they are trying to legalise.
Summarising, Albox should got his first phase PGOU ( center ) approved by autumn, but the rest…… I would say after the 2007 elections the earliest. Most likely 2008.”
But frankly, in that area, who knows.
