Relief as authorities in Denia confirm no demolition for coastal properties
A recent announcement by Costas has put an end to the panic that swept through the owners of single-family homes and tourist apartments on Les Deveses Beach in Denia (Alicante). Fears arose when the authorities revealed plans for demarcation to determine public domain land maritime-terrestrial, sparking concerns of potential demolitions.
The public body, operating under the Ministry for the Ecological Transition, clarified that the coastal planning announcement does not, under any circumstances, imply the demolition of existing homes. According to a report by Costas, they assured property owners that they would retain their assets. Instead, they will be granted a 75-year concession, extendable, transferable through sale or inheritance, and redeemable through economic means.
The demarcation will impact a total of 115 homes, consisting of 67 single-family houses and 48 apartments spread across nine buildings. With an investment of 14.5 million, Costas aims to create a recreational space for public enjoyment while providing protection for the homes affected by the 2020 Gloria storm.
The initiative also seeks to address the impact of climate change by preventing the regression of Les Deveses Beach and reclaiming a stable width of at least 30 metres. Authorities argue that this measure is crucial in preparing for adverse phenomena linked to climate change.
