FV against containers on rustic land

Fuerteventura stands up against containers and huts on rustic land.

The reports of the Environment detect more than 500 illegal buildings that, according to Lola García,

The Cabildo of Fuerteventura, the Government of the Canary Islands and the six municipalities of Fuerteventura have initiated an action plan to stop the proliferation of unauthorised installations on rustic land that threaten natural values, planning and biodiversity. In this sense, the president of the Cabildo, Lola García, received today the Minister of Policy and Territorial Cohesion, Manuel Miranda, to coordinate the work that will paralyze the spread of facilities such as caravans, containers, prefabricated houses and other structures that contravene urban and environmental regulations.

With the aim of establishing the greatest possible coordination and initiating this joint action plan, the working meeting was also attended by representatives of all the town councils, local Police of the different municipalities, agents of the Environment of the Cabildo, as well as the Minister of Territorial Planning, Nereida Calero, the Minister of Tourism, Blue Economy and Biosphere Reserve, Marlene Figueroa, and the Minister of Sustainability, Paloma Hernández. The director of the Canary Islands Agency for the Protection of the Natural Environment, Montserrat Ortega, was also present.

The president of the Cabildo, Lola García, explained that "this coordination meeting has been convened with the aim of initiating joint actions to stop the invasion that we are suffering in our rustic land, without any type of legal fit and seriously modifying the natural singularities of our Island and the traditional uses of this type of soil".

The reports of the agents of the Environment detect more than 500 illegal buildings of various types, distributed indiscriminately throughout the island territory. "For this reason, it is key that all the administrations involved are coordinated so that each one in its field exercises the necessary action to immediately stop what we understand as a real aggression against our landscape and way of life. We hope that joint action, with local Police, environmental agents, SEPRONA and other institutions will help to stop the situation," continued the island president. Lola García pointed out that "all these facilities are being denounced and it is important that the sanctions are executed quickly and that the soil is reverted to its natural state," said Lola García.

"The city councils and the Cabildo have expressed their concern about the proliferation of illegal containers and facilities, such as leisure homes or warehouses on unauthorized land, a very worrying phenomenon not only because of the risk they entail in terms of habitability and health, but also because they represent a serious environmental and landscape impact that we cannot afford in a land like ours," Manuel Miranda said.

The solution to this "growing problem" involves a "joint and coordinated" action between the affected municipalities, the Cabildo and the Government of the Canary Islands, which through the Canary Islands Agency for the Protection of the Natural Environment will lead an extraordinary inspection campaign to locate this type of facility. In addition, it will provide legal and administrative support to municipalities for the processing of the relevant enforcement orders.

At the same time, the Cabildo will start an information campaign on the prohibitions and infractions in this regard in this type of soil, which are typified in accordance with the Law of Land and Protected Natural Areas of the Canary Islands, which may lead to fines of up to 150,000 euros. Unauthorised buildings on rustic land are also typified in the Organic Law of the Penal Code.
