The Partido Popular-Andalucia (PP-A) has called for all municipalities in Andalucia to draw up a census of illegal houses in their areas in order to legalise them where possible. PP-A spokeswoman Alicia Martínez accused the Junta de Andalucia of “blowing up out of all proportion a problem that cannot solved by demolitions”. She told a press conference in Sevilla last Friday that her party estimated that there were at least 200 illegal urbanisations in the region – some 200,000 houses – which did not take into account the hundreds of illegally built “campo” houses. She said: “It’s not possible to legalise houses in some municipalities and not others”, which was why the PP-A was calling for a region-wide census. She also said owners whose houses could be legalised, or regularised as many town councils prefer to call it, would still have to pay the notary, registration and other fees involved in such a process.
