The Regional Tribunal Superior de Justicia (TSJA) has ordered Almuñécar Town Hall to make a new access lane for Urbanización Cármenes del Mar in La Herradura.
The court also required Almuñécar to carry out repairs as the building company that built this housing complex, Cerro Gordo S.L., (part of Grupo Comarex) has declared itself insolvent.
In other words, according to the instruction of the court sentence (02/03/2020), the Town Hall must carry out the much needed stabilisation work on the hillside, updating the project drawn up by the company in 2007 to include new conditions on the ground.
The affected homeowners had requested that the Junta and Town Hall should carrying out the emergency work, which was granted in the court sentence, however the TSJA rejected their claim that the said administrations should find them alternative accommodation.
The landslips that have occurred since Urb. Carmenes del Mar went up in the early 90s have also affected, but to a lesser degree, other urbanizaciones such as Calaiza, Casas Especiales, Atarazanas and Pueblo.
As pointed out at the beginning of the article, the court has instructed the Town Hall to alter the PGOU (Urban Development Plan) to incorporate an alternative access lane for the urbanización, given the state of the existing one. The Town Hall had begun to draw a plan up in August when it was approved unanimously at a Plenary Meeting of the Town Council and it was also agreed to extend a line of credit within the Municipal Budget to cover these costs.
