On that note: Urban Planning in Spain

I have a few questions:

I fully understand the workings of the UK planning system. Simplistically speaking proposals require compliance with the Local Development Plan, Development Control Policies etc. and there’s the General Permitted Development Order, as well as the Officer / Councilor / Committee decision making process etc…

However, my knowledge of the Spanish Planning system is limited. Can anyone give me a quick overview on the decision making process for domestic planning applications? For example, should one wish to insert a pool or add an extension assuming sufficient land is available?

And, are the local development plans (or similar) kept up to date and available for the public to inspect?
