The Marbella town hall has changed the urban general plan (Plan General de Ordenación Urbana (PGOU) to legalise Antonio Banderas house in Los Monteros.
The plan to legalise his house was approved and the green belt area will be extended into the actor’s property by 1200 metres.
The validation process of “La Gaviota”, which was built illegally in 2005, before Banderas owned the house, has taken four years to transmit, since he bought the house in 2010.
In the original housing plan, 1243 sq meters of green belt land was sited at the front of his house, which would have meant the town hall taking back his pool area, but in October 2010 it was agreed by both parties that he would give back the same amount of land but to the side of the house.
It was formally endorsed on the 29th September this year.
