The Ley de Costas has come to Mojacar. The Direccion General de Costas has published a list of some 60 individuals and companies who own property along Mojacar Playa -from Rio Aguas to Cueva del Lobo and Rambla Alfaix- who will be affected by the expropiation of the coastline (100m from high tide, I remind you).
Here’s the list of people who haven’t been officially informed of the process: BOE 10/03/09. Apart from this list there are other people who have been served the documents.
These people now have 15 days to pop along to the Servicio de Costas in Almeria and ask for the plan. After that, no recourse possible and you loose ownership of your land / house / business / whatever. You do get permission to continue live there for 30 years (with a further 30 year extension if you don’t die).
On a brighter note, as I understand it, the law only affects properties built in the last 30 odd years. So, while older houses (the 1960 era) may loose a bit of garden, in general they are extent. There seems to be some discussion about whether Mojacars new superdisco, Mandala, is affected.
