A major amendment to regional planning laws aimed at ending the threat of demolition for many homeowners whose properties were built illegally but bought in good faith has been passed by the Junta de Andalucía. 

Last week, the regional government approved changes to legislation dating from 2002 which will permit certain owners to register their homes in the Land Registry and guarantee access to basic water and electricity. 

The Junta’s planning department says 30,000 of the 300,000 buildings constructed on undeveloped land will now become legal.
