Los Molinos demolition?

Call for help from the residents of Los Molinos before the demolition.

The well-known enclave of the west coast of the island of Fuerteventura in danger of demolition under an expansive interpretation of the Coastal Law


The neighbors of Puertito de Los Molinos fear for the survival of the well-known majorero enclave as we know it because of the threat of demolition that looms under the coastal law.



In this sense, they have launched a campaign in change.org to gather support that recognizes them as cultural heritage and the small town can continue to exist.



The inhabitants of the mills affirm that the enclave has 200 years of history linked to its strong fishing, shellfish and lime export tradition and must be considered cultural heritage of the majorera island.



They affirm that it is a place where their neighbors try to maintain the stamp of those customs and traditions in " the North Sea ", so that producing a comparative grievance with other fishing localities that under the aforementioned law, have granted them a concession to avoid their imminent demolition.

If they don’t comply with building laws and regulations then of course they should be demolished. No question.

Radio Sintonia:

The Plenary of the Cabildo of Fuerteventura has approved, unanimously, an institutional motion urging the Ministry for the Ecological and Retro Demographic Transition to paralyze the file of recovery of public domain initiated by the State and that affects the Puertito de Los Molinos. The Island Corporation thus joins the motion approved this week by the City Council of Puerto del Rosario, in defense of the cultural and historical value of a town traditionally associated with majorera fishing.



According to the president of the Cabildo, Lola García, "from the Cabildo we express our rejection of such a decision and we understand it urgent to request the Ministry to stop the file, since competences that have been transferred to the Government of the Canary Islands are being violated". In addition, it attacks the cultural and ethnographic values of this important part of the majorero cultural heritage with more than 200 years of history.

This was made known by the groups represented in the Plenary of the Cabildo, in an ordinary session that was attended by neighbors of the town of Los Molinos.

With this motion, the insular institution asks the State to take into account this institutional motion, as well as the allegations of the City Council of Puerto del Rosario, and to declare the Municipal Corporation as interested in the files and procedures of inspection, sanctioning and repair that affect the different properties.

The Plenary of the Cabildo has also agreed to urge the Government of the Canary Islands (in the exercise of its powers within the framework of the Statute of Autonomy) to launch the files to save the town of Los Molinos, as well as to request the City Council of Puerto del Rosario to modify the planning so that its ethnographic and historical value is recognized. In addition, this agreement is transferred to the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge, the Government of the Canary Islands and the City Council of Puerto del Rosario.

The TSJC paralyzes the demolition of houses in Los Molinos.

The court thus protects the precautionary measures proposed by the neighbors after the transfer of powers to the Canary Islands



NEWSROOMFUERTEVENTURA



More than thirty-five families in Los Molinos are affected by a demolition order of the Coastal Demarcation executed last August. Now the TSJC takes precautionary measures to suspend the demolition



The State Coastal Demarcation ordered on August 21, 2023 the execution of the demolition of some fifteen houses affected by the Coastal Law with the aim of recovering the maritime-terrestrial public domain.



The platform of those affected by the Coastal Law appealed the resolution and requested the High Court of Justice of the Canary Islands precautionary measures to paralyze that demolition.



Now the TSJC has decided to paralyze the demolition of one of them and the Platform hopes that it is only the beginning. "After this one will come the others," says lawyer José Luis Langa. "There are about thirty-five families affected by this, which is nonsense," says Langa, who has detected an increase in this type of resolution.



The nucleus of El Molino had a demolition order since 2005, but it was never executed. Eighteen years later, Demarcation of Coasts ordered the demolition and removal of one of the buildings.



In the resolution of the High Court of Justice of the Canary Islands, the Chamber of the Contentious Administrative resolves "to suspend the execution of the Resolution of the Demarcation of Coasts dated August 21, 2023, which requires the voluntary execution of the file of possessory recovery of the maritime-terrestrial public domain, consisting of the demolition and removal of a building located in the maritime-terrestrial public domain in Puerto de Los Molinos ". It gives a period of three days for allegations.



There is a dispute since the transfer of the competences of Costas to the Canary Islands was ordered because it has not yet been completed. "Unfortunately, the transfer of competences has not been absolute. Therefore, we have to make a review of the competences so that we decide, within our Demarcation of Coasts, what is executed and what is not, "confirms Langa. "Costas has pressed the red button and begins to send resolutions to demolish homes that have been there for many years," adds Langa.



The Platform of Affected by the Coastal Law calls for a review of the competences


The lawyer of the Platform, José Luis Langa, is part of the commission through which he will request in the Canarian Federation of Municipalities (FECAM) an exhaustive review of the competences that have been transferred to the Canary Islands. "That the competences be reviewed so that they are absolute, full, because if we do not continue to have that umbilical cord with Madrid and the consequences are these," laments José Luis Langa. "The people were calm until they have returned again to order the demolition," Langa adds.



The City Council of Puerto del Rosario celebrates the resolution of the TSJC



The City Council of Puerto del Rosario celebrates the resolution issued by the High Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) regarding the suspension of the execution of the resolution of the Demarcation of Coasts, by which an order of demolition was issued on the fishing village of Los Molinos.



The mayor of Puerto del Rosario, David de Vera, valued this decision as "a great step taken by justice to preserve the idiosyncrasy of that coastal area."



He also wanted to record "the involvement and support that this Municipal Corporation gives and will give to the residents of Los Molinos, who struggle to keep their homes standing."



In the last plenary session corresponding to the month of September, the City Council of Puerto del Rosario unanimously approved an institutional motion that defended the suspension of the execution of the resolution of the Demarcation of Coasts, as ratified today by the TSJC.



The Cabildo also applauds the resolution



The president of the Cabildo of Fuerteventura, Lola García, on behalf of the entire Corporation, applauds the resolution of the Chamber of the Contentious Administrative of the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands that has agreed to suspend the execution of the resolution of Costas of August 21 by which the order of the demolition of the maritime town of Los Molinos was dictated, in the municipality of Puerto del Rosario.



Lola García assures that "this type of decisions prove us right and show, once again, the imperative need for the Canary Islands to have real and full powers over their coasts". "We are of legal age and we know the reality of our island and our cultural heritage, present in enclaves such as Los Molinos".



At the same time, the insular president reiterates her support for the Platform of People Affected by the Coastal Law and congratulates them "for being closer to definitively annulling the intentions of coasts to demolish this symbolic corner of our Island.

Does anyone know if this is just a suspension or a permanent reversal? What happens next? We will be very sad if the village is demolished; we have been going to Casa Pon for almost 30 years since it opened.

The issue is legality. If properties can be proved to be built/owned legally with the correct licences/deeds etc then there’s nothing to worry about. Any property on the island, including Los Molinos, that was built without the correct paperwork is surely at risk of demolition. Otherwise, it makes a mockery of why these safeguards are there in the first place.

Blow to the residents of Los Molinos affected by the Coastal Law.

According to the platform's lawyer on Cadena SER this morning, there has been a judicial setback for those affected who will have to go to the Supreme Court


"After the High Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) accepted the precautionary measures to prevent the demolition of the nucleus of Los Molinos, in Fuerteventura, now a judge dismisses the lawsuit, considering that the sentence of 2011 is final," says Cadena SER after interviewing Jose Luis Langa.



"The High Court of Justice of the Canary Islands has listened to what the Administration's lawyer says, stating that the 2011 sentence is final," said José Luis Langa, lawyer for the platform of those affected by the Coastal Law in the microphones of Hoy por Hoy Las Palmas.

Although the competences in matters of costs have been transferred to the Canary Islands, the truth is that a complete transfer has not been carried out, but a partial one, and there are thousands of files seized by the State. Mrs Langa is calling for a new meeting of the joint committee on the transfer of powers.



"I am convinced that there is still a long way to go, today we are going to appeal to the Supreme Court. This means that families will still be in a dangerous situation. I trust that there is still time," laments José Luis Langa. "I also trust in a political solution, that the Canary Islands will once and for all have the real powers and we will be able to decide the fate of all these families here," he adds.
