Dear property owner,
We contact you, to inform you individually and collectively about the positive development rising from the efforts to find a fair and equal solution for the urbanistic problems affecting the Urbanization of La Mola in Port Andratx. After launching a campaign in order to find solutions we now see the necessity to assemble La Mola’s owner community. The objective is to found an Association which will defend their interests before the responsible public entities.
There have been numerous reunions, consultations even with the current municipal team and efforts aimed at solving the existing urbanistic problems affecting the Urbanization. After having analyzed, valuated and verified the existing options the municipal team informed us, that their intention is to cooperate in order to find the necessary solutions to provide the area with infrastructure and restore legal and urban normality.
The so called “Subsidiary Norms 2007”, currently applicable planning for the municipality of Andratx, included the Urbanization of La Mola into a unit of action to qualify its land as urban and to plan the implementation of its infrastructure endowment. In 2009 the Andratx town hall tried to push forward the project as set out before and therefore approved hurriedly La Mola’s economic parcellation. Different factors which affected the parceling like the physical reality and historical background had not been taken into consideration jeopardizing the process, which had been established for its adoption. In 2012 the whole proceeding, which had been promoted by the town hall, had been declared invalid before court because of not being approved according to applicable law and not taking account of the existing endowments. It is well known, that since then no visible progress has been reached and La Mola is still in a deteriorating state.
We understand that all the involved parties wish to have well finished infrastructural facilities as asphalted streets, working public lighting, etc. at correct pricing adjusted to the existent fiscal reality. Furthermore, we understand the right of every owner to develop and adjust their buildings to the current urbanistic parameters, without being limited by the stringent existent restrictions as a result of the current situation.
Due to a careful analysis of the situation, its legal and urbanistic aspects, the solution which provides most legal certainty is the creation of an Administrative Association of Cooperation. The prevailing legal foundations for this solution are:
The Regulation implementing the Law 2/2.014, from 25 March, about planning and land use of the Balearic Islands (LOUS), provides in its art. 253.3: “in form of cooperation, the owners have the possibility to found an Administrative Association on their own initiative or by an agreement of the town hall in order to collaborate in the execution of the urbanization works and to draft the reparcelization project.”
Its art. 254.1.b.) states that: “the Administrative Association of Cooperation will be in charge of the reparcelization project (…)”.
To ensure a fair proceeding resolving the situation as set out, we think it is crucial to found the Administrative Association of Cooperation of the owners of La Mola’s Urbanisation, which is laid down on the applicable rules.
In broad outlines the objectives of the Association will be as follows:
- To defend the urbanistic interests of La Mola’s property owners, which they
- To maintain a communication platform during the proceeding, reaching all the
- To participate in all urbanistic proceedings affecting
- To promote the reparcelization project and infrastructure endowment while controlling the costs, to ensure that they are not abusive and consistent with the real
- To ultimately create an authentic representative body with legal character and capacity to act according to the current planning
Given the Association’s official nature of owner representation, it has to be constituted by majority representation of owners. To this end we invite all property owners in La Mola to subscribe as members of the new Association. The Constituent Assembly will take place on 19 January 2018 from 11:00 h at the Hotel Steigenberger Golf & Spa Resort in Camp de Mar lecture hall. The agenda for the Assembly will be the following:
