Suza, if you recall the recent case in Vera concerning the Priors and subsequent demolishion debacle, the facts that have so far emerged seem to indicate that their house was built on rustic land but permission was given to them by the Vera town hall.

Unfortunatly, town halls cannot re classify land from rustic to urban. Only regional authorities can do that, and the JDA never authorised it, hence the demolition.

Local town halls can give planning consent and building licenses to build on poligono´s that are urbanised, provided the buildings adhere to restricted planning rules passed down to them from the regional authorities, such as, density, the amount of levels, boundaries and access etc.

Yes – it was reading about the Vera case that caused my concerns. Thank you for your detailed input
