DENIA residents with sea-front properties in the Costa Blanca town face a dilemma.
Should they apply for an extension of the concession that allows them to occupy front-line properties that infringe the Coastal Law?
If the town’s General Structural Plan (PGE) and the 2014 Coastal Law put them beyond the maritime demarcation line, this would be tantamount to admitting that their properties invade the public maritime-territorial domain. Alternatively they can wait to find out how their properties are situated once the provisional demarcations are announced.
Residents raised these points during a recent meeting with Denia’s Town Planning councillor, Vicente Chelet, as they discussed the repercussions of the Coastal Law on homeowners and the town hall itself.
They now have six months to decide whether or not to apply for an extension of the concession or merely “wait and see.”
Also discussed were Les Rotes and a section of Deveses where the demarcation line measured from the shore will be 60 metres if the PGE classes them as urban areas, but 100 metres if not.
