Here you go, only the first of two though.! Even the crooked Mayor didn’t give permission for this one.

just read that the Regional Councillor for Housing and Territorial Planning recently announced in the Andalucian parliament that his department is putting the finishing touches to a new town planning regulation which includes a procedure for summary demolition, without the matter having to go through any further courts.
The measure, part of the LOUA, the Andalucian Building Ordination Law, is designed to stop building in nature parks or river beds from taking place in the first place, and end the current scenario that while such a case goes through the courts, other buildings are built nearby.

Katy – am giving another link for those like me whose Spanish is not so good as yours. 😉
The criteria for the Town Hall is clearly shown in the last paragraph. Is this ‘written in stone’, and has the Junta agreed to this does anyone know?

The two demolitions will, I think, be the only ones. Just a bit of window dressing as both were not completed, just empty shells. The Junta were putting pressure for many more demolitions but I doubt that will happen.
I am not impressed with the new Mayor. Have noticed a new development taking shape in Elviria, close to the main Road, an area of (previously protected) pine trees!

The Junta’s Minister for housing says he regrets that Marbella has not acted sooner in demolishing illegal buildings. He points out that others must be demolished as per the agreement with the Junta (see list to the right of the article). Still a fudge though, most are just concrete shells and none are occupied..even the flagship illegal Banana Beach has escaped!

Another week, another story 🙄 16 Mayors have been arrested for corruption in the last 3 years. Some gave even been re-elected whilst on Bail…see list in Article.
Also the Marbella saga goes on. The other two demolitions ordered to demolish by the end of January are still standng untouched. One in San Pedro by Promotor PROSAVI (6 Townhouses) The other by Naviro in Las Chapas. These Builders seem to think they are outside the Law.

It’s the fault of an obviously weak Town Hall who just doesn’t ensure their directives are acted upon.
Mr. & Mrs. Prior in Vera didn’t have such luck, having the Junta itself take a ‘personal’ interest in their demoliton.
“16 Mayors have been arrested for corruption in the last 3 years. Some have even been re-elected whilst on Bail”
How does the saying go? “Spain is a sunny country full of shady characters”.
