On the wrong course

EL ALGARROBICO: Hotel enmeshed in a 15-year legal tangle Photo credit: untipografico

SPEAKING to the Spanish media, Environment minister Teresa Ribera declared that she wished the Algarrobico hotel could disappear.

The minister was referring to the hotel built on Carboneras’ Algarrobica beach that has been ensnared in endless court cases since construction was halted 15 years ago.

The hotel now occupies part of the state-owned maritime strip but not at the time that planning permission was granted.

“It is much easier to destroy than build and this is an environmental lesson that Spain knows very well,” Ribera declared.

The hotel was a perfect example of entangled legal complexities, the minister said, and how difficult it was to recover what was lost after taking the wrong course.
