Chiclana town plan rejected by the courts

The Supreme Court of Andalucia has annulled the latest town plan drawn up by Chiclana, a town in Cadiz Province (Costa de la Luz, Andalucia) plagued by serious illegal building problems.

The court rejected the plan on the grounds procedures were not property followed in its approval in March 2007.

The plan, which offered a partial solution to Chiclana’s 15,000 illegally-built homes, was opposed by a group of individuals and local developers. A solution for owners of illegal homes in Chiclana is now as far away as ever.

The two previous town plans for Chiclana were also rejected by the courts, in 2003 and 2005.

Chiclana’s town hall says it will appeal to the Spanish Supreme Court.
