ANDALUCIA’S Junta president has announced plans to regulate thousands of homes that have been built illegally over the last few decades.
Speaking in Torrox at the weekend, Jose Antonio Grinan said a decree to legalise many of the properties built on non-buildable land would ‘probably’ be passed on January 10.
“We are talking about legalising thousands and thousands of homes,” he said.
“We must, therefore, be sure that this legalisation does not go against the public interest and is not harmful to the environment or the security of the people.
“Once this is confirmed, the decree will be approved.”
An estimated 11,000 such buildings in the Axarquia will benefit from the decree, as will around the same number in Almeria.
