UP TO 1,000 illegal homes and buildings in Mijas may benefit from a new draft law the Junta de Andalucia regional government has improved to modify the LOUA Andalucian Urban Planning Law.
The buildings are mostly country houses but also include sheds and even rural restaurants, explained Town Planning councillor, Andres Ruiz, who said that owners would soon be able to register with the Property Registry and contract mains water and electricity as long as certain conditions are met.
Once the parliament ratifies the changes to the LOUA, buildings that have been in place for at least six years on ground not classified as under special protection or at risk of flooding and have no legal or administrative proceedings underway will be suitable for legislation.
Mijas municipality, with a surface area of 147 square kilometres, contains the highest numbers of illegal buildings in the province after villages to the east of Malaga City.
