Beach Footpath Recovered

MOT Confiscated FootpathLocals in the Playa Granada area of Motril now have their beach footpath back – they’d woken one morning to find it had been ‘confiscated’ by Hacienda

Hacienda had decided to claim it as part of the ongoing golf-course embargo even though the said path, which runs beside an urbanización, connecting the beach to the road, does not figure in the Land Registry as part of the embargoed plot.

All hell broke loose and the Town Hall was forced to get its finger out and confront Hacienda, which is what they finally did.

Councillor for Urban Development, Antonio Escámez, got hold of Hacienda and told them that locals were not happy with this inexplicable decision: eliminating beach access on the verge of Semana Santa.

An agreement was reached: the Town Hall should come up with all the relevant paperwork that shows that the said footpath has been public domain since 2002 when the development company Avila Rojas ceded it to the town and Hacienda opens it up in the meantime.

The paperwork was provided virtually the same day.

Hacienda begrudgingly made this concession because the difference between the golf-course land and the footpath is that one is for private use and the other for public use.
