ALICANTE’S Urban Planning Commission approved the suspension of processing and granting demolition licences proposed for listed buildings – for a maximum period of two years.

All the municipal groups voted in favour of the agreement, with the exception of Vox, which abstained. 

Demolition licences were suspended as were construction licences for “actions against buildings identified as being ‘listed'”.

The suspension of demolition licences for the buildings included ones for the Casa Soto o Martínez and the Teatro Principal.

However, this agreement does not affect execution orders from the City Council itself “aimed at the conservation and maintenance of the stability and safety conditions of said buildings.”

The suspension will have a maximum duration of two years and its effectiveness requires its publication in the Official Gazette of the Generalitat Valenciana, indicating the scope and type of licences affected.
