Court orders demolition of illegally built property in Torrox

09:28 |

The EFE news agency has seen the order which states that the property has to be demolished ‘in a forced way’, given that the owner, Antonio Urdiales, who has been found guilty of a crime against planning laws, has not attended to the demand to voluntarily demolish the property.

The owner has started legal proceedings in an attempt to be granted a pardon, and has also launched a petition. His spokesman, Modesto Jiménez, said that signatures have been collected since last week and they now have more than 400, ‘although there will be many more as we have put sheets in all the businesses and shops in Torrox’.

The petition states that the demolition of the property, in the Manzano Alto area, will not solve the problem of the irregular properties which exist in the Axarquía region.

‘In all the villages in the district, 90% of the existing buildings in the campo are in the same circumstances as our neighbour, and demolishing one house is not going to solve the problem’.

Urdiales was found guilty in November 2009, by Penal Court 6, which considered it proved that from 2004 he used a municipal licence for the construction of a 24 m2 agricultural caseta to build a detached villa.

The building is 100 square metres and a swimming pool and cement boundary wall have also been constructed.
