AN expat grandmother has lost a six-year battle against Estepona Town Hall to save her loft conversion.
Finnish expat Terttu Balson, 70, was this week forced to start demolishing the extension, even though her next door neighbour has one.
Incredibly she has also been fined €24,300 for building the extension without the correct planning permission despite her neighbour – and many others – in the Seghers development also having illegal extensions.
But it is not all doom and gloom for Balson.
The town hall has now granted her permission to construct a smaller extension after the original comes down.
