    The Delegado de Obras Públicas from the Junta de Andalucía has announced that the policy on the region’s ‘illegal homes’ has been reviewed and that, from now, only those homes built in risk-of-flood areas, or in environmentally protected areas (except the Hotel Algarrobico, of course) will continue to be ‘illegal’ and at risk of demolition. Other hitherto ‘illegal’ homes will now be ‘regularized’. This, if nothing else, means that they can immediately be hooked up to water and electric (this after a court ruled that an ‘irregular’ home in Albox should be allowed basic services). The Voz de Almería claims that ‘no one is sure how many ‘illegal homes’ there are, but the Junta de Andalucía reckons on about 5,000′. Typically Spanish also carries the story.
