New Chiclana Urbanisation Plan
Monday, 03 February 2014

The new Chiclana Urbanisation Plan (PGOU - Plan General de Ordenacion Urbano) was approved at a special meeting on Friday 24th January 2014. It will be officially published when it is announced in the Bop de Cadiz. This should happen in the next few days. 

An exhibition of the plans will open this week in the lobby of the Town Hall with members of staff to help answer your questions. You will also be able to use their computer to access the plans. The exhibition will be open 09.30 – 13.30 and 18.00 – 20.00.

We have been told that the full document will soon be available for consultation and download from the Ayuntamiento website. http://www.chiclana.es/

After publication there will be one month to make any objections to the plan.

Urbanisation Past and Present
Saturday, 28 January 2012

 The following history of the urbanisation/electricity issue in Chiclana has been written by Dave Fisher.  He admittedly has taken some poetic license, but that is mostly in his writing style.  The information is accurate (as accurate as it gets around here).  

The History (with a little bit of Artistic licence):

We all currently live in an illegal house, unless it was legal under the 1987 regulations. El Plan General de Ordenación Urbana, (P.G.O.U.), town plans made after 1987 (together with the Area de Gestíon Basica (AGB bylaws) have finally been declared illegal by the Supreme Court in Madrid. What then happened, the Ayuntamiento applied for permission under article 35 of la Ley de Ordenación Urbanística de Andalucía (LOUA) the “Grand Plan” by the Junta de Andalucia) for two years to allow “necessary” planning applications. This has since been approved. In reality this simply allows the Ayuntamiento to continue development while they finish their urbanization plan. It should be stated that houses built with planning permission under the various plans (now annulled) continue to be perfectly legal.

Remember, Chiclana is not the only town with problems; from the Costa del Sol in the south to Galicia in the North West of Spain; from Valencia with their “land grab laws” through the whole of the Costa Blanca there are examples of similar problems.

Chiclana Town Plan - Where are we now?
Friday, 05 August 2011

Chiclana Let’s go back to early May this year a couple of weeks before the most recent local elections. The PSOE was in power and had been for a couple of years.  There was an Urbanisation Plan (the 2007 PGOU) that had been submitted by the Council which had been through all the local procedures.

It was known that there were some technical challenges to the plan and it was likely that it would be annulled so the City Council had prepared a new plan that fixed these errors and changed some areas from white to “urbanisable.” Also, some areas that had been yellow (urbanisable) or yellow and white striped (urbanisable in the next phase) were changed to white (and blue) due mostly to flooding issues.

"Houses built on white land are closer to being granted basic services"

This is the opinion of the town planning delegate for Chiclana, Cándida Verdier. She explained the action being taken to resolve the problems that homeowners living in illegally built properties - on land not intended for the purposes of building - are currently faced with. She said that a solution allowing people in this predicament access to basic services was 'ever closer'.

"We have reached an agreement for the good of the whole town"

José María Román will today declare, in a meeting of council members, the unanimous support of the town's politicians for the new agreement signed with residents´ groups with regard to the legalisation process. The mayor will make it clear that the legalisation process "will be done at cost price"
