BUILDING work is still suspended inside the grounds of the Alhambra Palace – more than a month after it was discovered a licence for the construction of a wall had not been granted.
Granada City Hall ordered the work in the gardens below the Patio of the Sultaness to be stopped on September 29 after a routine inspection by town planning officials found the ayuntamiento had not given the green light for the project.
Council officials issued a suspension order and asked the electricity and water boards to cut their services to the work site making further work on the wall impossible.
A spokesman for the Patronato de la Alhambra – the company that manages the palace – said at the time the work was stopped: “We did not think a licence was necessary as important maintenance work was being carried out and not construction.”
The Patronato de la Alhambra has less than a month to obtain a licence to legalize the work.
