• Antonio Banderas' home ‘La Gaviota’, may once again be in the firing line
MARBELLA Town Hall has come under fire from the TSJA for violating a previous ruling regarding the home of Spanish heart-throb Antonio Banderas.
After years of battling in the courts to save his garden, the actor was allowed to keep his sea view intact when the Marbella Town Hall decided to amend the PGOU urban plan last October.
But now the TSJA has issued a six-page warning to the Planning Department reminding them should they fail in their duty “to implement the ruling of a final decision”, they are liable for civil or even criminal charges.
The document also clearly states that “the courts alone are competent to decide whether buildings can be demolished or not.”
The decision to allow Banderas to keep his beach front access contradicts a previous ruling that specified he, and Hollywood wife Melanie Griffith, must cede 1,200 metres of their home, ‘La Gaviota’, at Los Monteros.
And according to independent councillor Javier de Luis, “the PP will have to work with the TSJA on these issues, to do otherwise is suicide.
It now lies in the hands of a judge to decide whether the amendment allowing the famous couple to keep their garden is valid or not, and if any action should be taken against Marbella Town Hall.
