Gypsy families decided to leave 34 apartments in the Golden Hills development

21:06 |

Gypsy families who had been squatting in an embargoed urbanisation since Sunday have decided to leave and all of them had moved out by the early hours of Wednesday. Police remained at the scene to prevent any of them returning.Between 100 and 150 people spent two nights in the 34 apartments of the Golden Hills development, and moved in there from social housing in Molino de Viento. EFE reports that other families from Sevilla and Málaga arrived on Tuesday morning, but a visit from Mijas Town Hall’s social services department that day convinced the squatters that they should go. The Town Hall has no jurisdiction in the matter however, and the only possibility had the squatters not decided to leave would have been the owner applying for an eviction order to the courts.
The apartments on the development are almost complete, but no work has taken place there for the past two years after it was embargoed from the developer. The development’s current owner is the bank.
