The government wants to class these homes to the Assimilated Out of Order (AFO) whereby owners of the properties gain legal certainty and solutions to the administration issues they currently face.Navarro also highlights that these measures are an important tool In the fight against rural depopulation, providing municipalities with fixed populations to help the tradition of local villages continue into the future.
The territorial delegate of Development, Carmen Casero, has explained that since 2003, “with the famous LOUA, we have been immersed in a tangle of regulations and territorial plans that, far from speeding up the regularization of these buildings, have delayed the situation over time by the complexity of bureaucratic procedures.”
