THE regulation of 250,000 illegal properties in Andalucia will be complete by May 2012, the Junta has announced.
After a decree passed in January comes into effect at the end of the month, town halls will be able to implement it immediately.
The process should take three months.
Land planning boss Gloria Vega lead a conference in Malaga this week to explain the process to town hall officials ‘with the objective of applying the same criteria across the whole of Andalucia’.
An estimated 11,000 such buildings in the Axarquia will benefit from the decree, as will around the same number in Almeria.
However, only ten per cent of the illegal properties in Andalucia will be a hundred per cent authorised.
Most will be ‘recognised’ by town halls, and therefore legally entitled to be connected to water and electricity supplies – while around ten per cent will be demolished.
