ILLEGAL property in El Puerto de Santa Maria could now be regularised.
The town hall has announced from next January it wants to start the process of regularising some 5,173 illegal homes, built in groups in the town without control or supervision.
Under the PGOU Urban plan the municipality will charge owners who want to regularise their homes, many of which have outstanding judicial processes against them and some of which were even built on non-buildable land.
The cost of legalisation will depend on the size of the plot, the buildings constructed and the location of the property.
But according to the town hall it wants to search for a solution to avoid any demolitions.
