Junta includes AUAN in working party to find solution to illegal housing problem
AUAN Press release – 21st July 2010
In an informal 30 minute meeting with a delegation from AUAN, the Minister for Planning and Housing of the Junta de Andalucia, Rosa Aguilar, announced the creation in September of a working party to find and agree solutions to problems arising from the illegality of homes in the Almanzora Valley.
The working party will include representatives of the regional government, the mayors of the valley and representatives of the affected families, specifically AUAN.
AUAN is satisfied with this new development which represents one of our key demands. We look forward to actively seeking solutions to the serious problems faced by our members in an open and transparent manner.
We encourage all those affected by this issue to register to vote to help maintain pressure on the working party to deliver results.
The meeting took place on Tuesday 20th July in Albox when the Minister attended the ceremony to mark the opening of the towns’ new bridge.

The meeting wasn’t a great success, as the Junta’s crew had nothing to offer and, indeed, Rosa Aguilar changed jobs exactly two days later. The new Minister for Obras Públicas y Vivienda at the Junta de Andalucia is Josefina Cruz. Ms Cruz was previously directora general de Ordenación del Territorio y Urbanismo at la Consejería de Obras Públicas y Transportes for the Junta de Andalucía, so she’ll no doubt play ‘hard-ball’ on the ‘viviendas ilegales’ in the Almanzora Valley.
In my opinion, the only way the Europeans can gather traction, since associations don’t have much muscle here and our dear British foreign service doesn’t do squat, is to join, form or dominate local political parties ready for next May’s local elections.
