Barcelona City Council Orders the Stoppage of Private Building Projects

Barcelona City Council has ordered the stoppage of private building projects on the street. The city’s Deputy Mayor for Security, Albert Batlle, has announced the suspension of the city’s public building projects and has asked the private sector to do the same.

In fact, the City Council has suspended all of the municipal licences granted to date. Therefore, in the Catalan capital, work will continue only on the construction of the Fòrum port dam and the pumping of groundwater from the Glòries tunnel project, in both cases for safety reasons.
