Anyway first things first. The PGOU. The junta waited until the last minute of the last day to return our PGOU with a list of about 4 issues which they required changing. These changes (and believe it or not one of those changes was to ensure that all the pages in each part of the document were numbered!) were all attended to the same day and returned to the Junta the same day. We now await their approval. The process now is that the Junta have to pass the plan to a commission (which they set up) who give final assent to the document. We do not envisage any more issues and expect the plan to be agreed by this commission. We had originally hoped that it would be in April but being a little sceptical I think mid May is more likely.
We are still awaiting a response to an inform we asked for which could help the situation regrading the court cases.
I told Candido that the AUAN were again circulating details of his next case to be heard in the Criminal Court No 2 at Almeria on the 15th and 17th April. he looked at the paperwork and confirmed that this was one of the outstanding cases which surprise surprise are being represented just before the elections AGAIN!! The case refers to a piece of land upon which there are no houses but which had been divided into plots on our old plan. So he was surprised to see this being circulated as it has no bearing on any residents and would appear to be just another one of those used to stymie Political parties other than the PSOE.
W are trying to get the contract for the bowling green signed off so that we can start to use it, even if we cannot get it fully operational as a club in the near future. I know a couple of people have informed me they know where the basic equipment can be obtained from for a good price. If you do please let me know. Partido Andalucista (which is the party I have been associated with for the past 8 years) is responsible for getting this investment in the green and we would like to hold some sort of competition, albeit without all the infrastructure, in the next few weeks. So if you know of somewhere or someone who could provide the basic equipment please get in touch.
The work on repairing Calle Finlandia will start after the easter holidays as will the work on the end of Calle Escocia. As regular readers will know the reason for the delay has been the difficulty in the TH getting the necessary funds from Madrid.
The previous list I gave to Candido regarding areas wanting tidying up etc is being worked through as is the minor repairs to roads etc. Please bear with us as there is a lot to attend to.
The situation with Tanatorio remains the same, which is that there is no electricity supply and there is an internal political situation which is restricting us from getting this sorted.
We then had a lengthy discussion about movements and thoughts about the compilation of the lists of candidates for the various parties for the upcoming local elections. Until the horse trading is complete it would not be appropriate to decide which party I would support. Suffice it to say that I cannot see myself in anyway supporting PSOE who have and continue (as far as Zurgena is concerned) to cause us many problems and restrictions. We are winning these battles, particularly in the courts, and it looks now as if we may see the end of these spurious actions before too long. This fact is enhanced by the cases that we have recently won with good clear rulings in support of the TH actions at the time.
As usual any questions or queries please just email or call.
