Demolition deluge

A RUSSIAN developer has been singled out in a new demolition purge announced by Malaga town hall.

Promoter Vladimir Davidovich Beniachvili’s illegal home near the city is one of at least five developments earmarked for destruction in the province.

A further 90 properties are currently being investigated and could join the growing list of homes in the region to be demolished.

A further 90 properties are currently being investigated and could join the growing list of homes in the region to be demolished.

According to planning officials the Russian has unlawfully built on 1,600 metres squared of protected land.

It comes after Carratraca Mayor Oscar Roman resigned to avoid being the “village hangman” and overseeing the demolition of some 100 village buildings, (see story below).

However, the Malaga authorities are now going ahead with the dreaded orders despite their unpopularity.

It is believed that the recent controversial cases – such as in Albox and Chiclana – have spurred the town hall to press ahead with the cases.

Legally, under the latest Andalucia land law legislation, council chiefs are required to pursue the illegal properties.

Properties in Campanillas, Puerto de la Torre and the Camino de Olías also face the wrecking ball.

The buildings in question are located on environmentally-protected land and some of the orders have been pending for a number of years.

The Olive Press reported that hundreds of people protested in Almeria after a dozen expatriates were handed new-year demolition orders.

  1. Well if this builder knew that he was selling illegal homes he is getting all he deserves, but what about the lawyers who put the paper work together, the notaries who said ok to deals when the knew these homes were going to be lived in, and of course the Anadalucian Junta who have pocketed their share in this giant swindle.
    Andalucia must be the only place in Europe where the victim gets a good kicking and the crooks go free.
