Letting go

CALPE resident Trevor Scott first contacted the Euro Weekly News over two years ago.
He was battling to recover 110 square metres of land taken by a neighbour to build a fence separating their properties
Sixteen years earlier, Trevor had lost a court case whose proceedings he barely understood and was ordered to pay €8,000 to his neighbour.
Trevor also told us that doctors agreed the years of worry and stress about the land had contributed to his wife’s death in 2017.
Earlier this year we received a jubilant phone call to say that Calpe town hall had agreed that the land was Trevor’s. His lawyer believed the Alicante High Court would reverse the original Denia ruling although it would be costly and take time.
Last week, Trevor rang the Euro Weekly News once more but this time it to tell us that he was dropping the case.
“Enough is enough,” he declared.
He had done everything possible to reclaim his land, Trevor said, and he wanted to warn others about what they might have to endure regarding land disputes and their effects on people’s lives.
“You might be in the right, but the moment comes when you have let go,” he declared, telling us he had finally come to terms with the situation.
