DEVELOPERS are demolishing older Montgo properties and replacing them with big villas.
Long-term Denia residents fear that they are changing the area’s character and are unhappy about some modifications.
Owners in the Altomira urbanization, which adjoins the Montgo national park, recently complained about a three-storey villa now under construction.
Planning regulations stipulate that only one-storey properties may be built more than 100 metres above sea level. The Altomira residents called in a topographer who put the entrance to the urbanisation where the new villa is located at 113.88 metres above sea level.
They acquired homes with uninterrupted sea views, never imagining that any of the one-storey properties in front of their own would be demolished, they said.
As well as complaining to the town hall, they would claim damages from the “person or persons” who authorised the construction, the Altomira residents announced.
