A COURT in Cádiz has refused planning permission for an extension to a local golf course.

The Partido Popular council of El Puerto had originally given its go ahead for the extension to the Vistahermosa course. Plans had also been agreed for 325 luxury homes.

However, judges have withdrawn the licence after a water authority report stated there would be no guaranteed water supply to the homes.

Noriega, one of Spain’s largest developers, was one of the companies behind the project.

A council spokesman said: “We are studying the sentence before deciding if we are to launch an appeal.”
