EXPAT residents are demanding action after a court order to demolish an illegally built property was ignored.
The home – on a hill overlooking Iznajar lake – was built without planning permission in 2007.
But despite losing two court cases, its Spanish owner has continued to develop the eyesore, adding a swimming pool, garage and extension.
Residents of the Pueblo Blanco development, who have had their view ruined, complained to the town hall but were told the council did not have the money to go ahead with the demolition.
“Any work that friends of mine have had done has always required a license from the council, yet it seems this man can build whatever he wants without reprisals,” community president Jeff Parkes told the Olive Press.
“It seems it’s not what you know it’s who you know here in Spain.”
