The councilors of the Town Planning department, Antonio Zapata & Antonia Moreno, respectively, have announced the new notification model for any illegal construction, which warns owners the obligation to return the property to their original state before illegal construction commenced, or to have it demolished.
Moreno has insisted that any work that is not licensed will be subject to the “pickaxe” once all the guaranteed judicial terms have been offered to the offender.” The Deputy Mayor also pointed out that this decision is in strict accordance with the law.
In the new document to be forwarded to those persons who commit any urban violation from this day, November 15, it calls for the restitution of land to its natural state, with the demolition of the part of the illegal construction already built, and warns that in case of not meeting this rule, you risk a penalty, regardless of the fine for violations ranging between 600 and 3,000 Euros. In case of failure to carry out the demolition, it will be accomplished by the Town Hall at the expense of offending owner.
The new notification also warns that companies supplying electricity, water, gas and telephone will be asked to terminate these services to illegal buildings. Offending parties should also know from today that the Town Hall shall inform the Fiscal Ministry (prosecutors) of each illegal situation, so that they will act accordingly applying a wide range of criminal and administrative penalties.
The Planning Councilor explained that “we need cut off point in the disorder of illegal constructions, because it leads to an unmanageable situation for the Town Hall.” This has been added to the already launched “regularization of property plan” and that in the “the General Plan (PGOU) is seeking urban land in the out lying districts” so that “from now on there is no excuse” .
Moreno finished the statement that from now on, she is willing “to enforce the law until the end”, while she assured that the announced measures will be implemented from tomorrow onwards. ”
