THE regional government is seeking viable ways of demolishing the El Algarrobico hotel in the Gata-Nijar national park.
This will include removing the rubble and remains of the 20-storey hotel’s 411 rooms followed by revaluing and restoring the land, announced Carmen Crespo, who heads the Junta’s Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development department.
The cost would be be reflected in the Junta’s next Budget, she confirmed.
Built at the water’s edge in 2003, the hotel breached  Spain’s Coastal Law, attracting the ire of environmentalists.
Although the developers insisted that they possessed all necessary permits, these were issued in the 1980s before El Algarrobico had become a protected area.
Regarding a date for the demolition, Crespo stated she “very much hoped” that this would be announced next year.
“We all want a date for the demolition because we are  convinced that this is what society wants and needs,” she said.
“From an environmental point of view recovering the land is really important and we are quite determined.”
