AN ILLEGAL property has been demolished in Alhaurin el Grande.
The three-storey house was built on rural land without permission.
The provincial court in Malaga ordered the demolition, stating that the house has had a major impact on the landscape in the local area.
Alhaurin court had already found the owner guilty of building the house without a licence, but it did not order the demolition.
The 250 metre square house and swimming pool was built on land classified as no urbanizable – unsuitable for development.
Under the planning regulations in place in Alhaurin, there is no way for the house to be legalised.
