THE Junta de Almeria rejected an application for a hotel near Cala de San Pedro inside the Gata-Nijar national park.
The proposed building was incompatible with the park’s uses, the Junta’s Sustainable Development delegation declared.
The existing partially-ruined structure that developers had hoped to convert into a boutique hotel did not appear on the Culture department’s inventory of listed buildings, the Junta pointed out. Consequently it could not be classed as apt for rehabilitation and, furthermore, according to the Catastro property register, the ruins were not located on same the plot as the proposed building.
The proposed building would also be sited within the 500-metre maritime strip where buildings for residential or hotel use are not permitted, the Junta stated.
The regional government also revealed that it had not been possible to analyse the project’s environmental or scenic impact as the developers had failed to provide the required documentation.
