Europe to Act on Cala Mosca
The European Parliament’s Petitions committee is to write to the Valencian Government to make sure that planning permission for homes to be built on Cala Mosca on the Orihuela Costa are within appropriate regulations. The body will also check that all environmental impact reports are acted upon by the builder, but these moves fall short of throwing a spanner in the works to stop the project altogether.
Local politicians (pictured in Brussels) Marta Guillén (Cambiemos Orihuela) and Bob Houliston (CLARO) went to the Petitions committee meeting on Tuesday, where they appealed for action to be taken over the controversial plans for a 1,500 home development at Cala Mosca, which they claim would destroy an area of key environmental importance.
Meanwhile, Orihuela Costa-based neighbourhood groups have called for a demonstration at Playa Flamenca promenade this Sunday morning against the Cala Mosca plans.
