THE Junta de Andalucia has thrown out a potential lifeline to thousands of owners of illegal properties which Mijas Town Hall hopes will benefits residents in the area. The Junta’s Public Works and Housing Department announced a forthcoming decree that would enable owners of thousands of illegal properties across the region to request regularisation of their property through their town hall, and to be issued with a licence of first occupation.
There are more than 3,000 illegally built houses within the limits of Mijas, and the Urban Planning Councillor, Juan Cruz, has said that they will be working hard to be one of the first towns benefited by new regulations.
British Ambassador to Spain, Giles Paxman said: “This is a real step forward for owners of illegally built properties in Andalucia. The decree should enable thousands of people whose properties have been declared illegal to comply with the law and gain access to essential services.”
