Business owner in Granadella has two months to demolish illegal works

A warning has been issued that failure to do so may mean that the task will be carried out by the local council which is obliged to comply with a judgment of the Supreme Court.

Slowly but surely. A few days ago, the Department of Urban Planning in Xàbia has issued an order calling on the owner of one of the restaurants in Cala Granadella to request a license to restore urban planning legality and comply with a Supreme Court ruling.

He is the owner of the premises currently occupied by Bandideta, formerly Llebeig. An order of the Supreme Court of May 2020 obliges Xàbia Council to comply with a decision that decreed that the works carried out in the premises were illegal, some of which were made between 2003, with the judges ruling that the illegality of them was still in force and that they hadn’t expired.

Therefore, after studying the judges decision carefully, and having received an order for the execution of the sentence, the department headed by councillor Pepa Gisbert, has decreed an order for the return to urban planninglegality.

In the document, to which XAD has had access, the Department of Urban Planning grants 60 days for the owner of the premises to request the necessary permission to carry out the following works:

  • Creation of solid brick pillars, as support for reinforced concrete beams to create a raised terrace, replacing a previously existing metal cover;
  • Dismounting, altering the level of the natural terrain and causing breakage of the existing margins and start of trees within the plot of Bar “Llebeig”;
  • Carrying out another excavation altering the level of the land for extraction of dry stone for future construction of stone walls in the excavation carried out.

It also warns that in the event of non-compliance with the order, fines may be imposed “for periods of one month” of 600 to 3,000 euros “with a maximum of ten”, and that the local council can carry out the work in a (and charge the owner later) or even compulsory execution of the work.

This step by the Department of Urban Planning opens the way for other similar files, in the same area that have also been ratified by the courts, such as the one relating to Casa Rosita, which emerged a few weeks ago, and which is also being studied by the local council to make a similar decision.
