GREENPEACE and other local environmental groups are outraged at the Andalucian Supreme Court’s decision to legalise the controversial Algarrobico hotel and are not giving up, following a legal battling lasting years.
Construction on the 21-storey hotel ceased in 2006 after it was ruled illegal- due to the fact it was built on a nature reserve.
Greenpeace have campaigned for many years to have the half-built concrete structure demolished, painting the words ‘hotel illegal’ on its outside.
But now the Supreme Court has reversed the multiple previous rulings and decided the hotel, on a beach in the Cabo de Gata nature reserve, held a legal permit and construction may recommence.
