I have 'copied' this over from the 'Arboleas forum' to help them get the message out,their words,

Dear all,

I have been asked by the AUAN committee to post this information, they are a little busy at the moment trying to track down people.

The President and Vice President have just come from a meeting with the Albox Mayor. The mayor has said he will ask the officials delivering these orders to give him 24 hours to get a list together for the AUAN to work with.

In the meantime the lawyer for the AUAN has advised that the best course of action is to avoid being served with these notices for as long as possible. If the police come to your house -

* avoid answering the door if at all possible

* do not sign for anything you do not understand

* tell them you will go to the town hall with your solicitor

This is only a delaying tactic and will not work indefinitely, but it will give the AUAN some time to work with the mayor and their legal representatives to look for a solution.

The AUANs´ legal representatives are looking at two avenues. One is on humanitarian grounds, and the other is on legal grounds.

The time limit to appeal on humanitarian grounds is 10 days from the serving of the notice, the legal appeal time limit is 15 days.

It is vital that the homeowners affected get urgent legal advice or contact the AUAN.

The AUAN is working very hard on this, you do not need to be a member to ask for their help. Please contact them on, or phone one of the numbers on the website

Please can we get this notice out to as many people as possible, lets work together on this one and see if we can´t make a difference. Send it to everyone in your address book, make this a chain mail that actually does some good.

...and another home penciled in for demolition on Tuesday January 12th in Las Lomas nearby the Priors house.
The damage the Junta de Andalucia is doing to this province (having, apparently looked the other way as all these houses were built) is tragic and terrible. What the f- are they thinking?
Almería's unemployment is already at 30%, the highest in Spain. These moribund interior towns don't have much else to live off besides 'residential tourism' (as they call it here) so, why stop the jobs and the foreign income?
This grotesque story is now (Tuesday) in the Daily Mail and, in Spanish, in Teleprensa.
