Spain referred to European Court over Valencia Land Law
Jun 27, 2007
The European Commission considers that it contravenes European legislation.
The European Commission has referred Spain to the European Court of Justice over the Valencia Land Law, the LUV.
The Commission says that while the LUV has streamlined the procedures included in its predecessor, the LRAU, it considers that certain aspects of the new law, which came into force on 1st February 2006, still contravene EU legislation on contracting for public works.
The European Commission holds the view that the Integrated Action Programmes (PAI) for public infrastructure work carried out by property developers are in fact public works contracts and, as such, should be governed by EU legislation.
