A Ruling from the TSJCV Forces Elche to Modify its PGOU to Allow Building Work 50 Metres from the Road

In light of the ruling from the Supreme Court of Justice in the Community of Valencia following an appeal submitted by the property developer Picolet SL in 2016, the General Plan in Elche is going to have to be modified to allow for building to take place 50 meters from the road, instead of 100 metres as established by local regulations, reports Alicante Plaza.

Picolet requested that Article 85 of the General Plan be modified, since it considered that it was being affected by it since it had to repair a warehouse on a plot that it owned affected by the future South Roundabout in a section that has yet to be built. The City Council dismissed the claim with administrative silence, and so the company filed an appeal with the TSJCV, which has now ruled in its favour.
