Does this rule still apply in Marbella when LFOs are being considered? I understood that it was no longer used and that 3 months silence was just that – silence, and not a reason for saying that an LFO had been granted.
Enlightenment on latest developments re the rule gratefully received.
I think its still in force but it cannot be used to cover an illegal planning application, so for someone who built legally with all planning licenses etc in place, if the final license isnt officially approved by the town hall because they dont get around to it, it can be deemed to have been issued by the act of silence (this was the actual reason for it being set up – it was just abused!). The finished article has to be as agreed by the architect and as approved by the town hall.
I believe Inez is right. It all hinges on the status of the building licence. If it’s legal, AS rules apply, if it’s illegal or currently revoked it can’t be applied.
Roots, what’s the current status re. Green Hills, do you know?
Charlie, I honestly don’t know re Green Hills. I know that MVG have paid a large fine – well €1.25m for 2 developments – and have promised to complete the unfinished road(s) – I think I saw something about them paying a Bond somewhere but haven’t been able to find that info again. Marbella Town Hall has said that an LFO is pending (I have that on paper from them) which ought to be the proof that the bank needs to give us our deposit back under the terms of our BG. Its almost 8 years since we paid it, and we’re as unlikely to get it back as ever.
Yes, thank you Josefina Cruz!
