ONE of Spain’s last unspoiled Mediterranean coves is under threat from a new building frenzy.
Environmentalists are growing concerned for the Costa Brava after several projects which were halted in 2008 have been resumed.
According to SOS Costa Brava, some 20 projects are underway along the 160 km coastline.
Among them is a 260-home residential development at Aiguafreda which had been stalled for 15 years due to bureaucratic hold-ups, divisions among investors and the economic crisis, sparked by theimplosion of a decade-long property bubble
“There is a renaissance in construction,” said Pilar Marcos, of Greenpeace, ““We are falling into the same trap.”
The group has urged the PSOE government to adopt stricter laws against building on the coast.
