Junta de Andalucía takes a tougher line on new golf courses

09:01 El NACHO 0 Comments

The Junta de Andalucía has rejected the construction of nine new golf courses in the region, saying the projects do not meet environmental and town planning demands. Six of the golf courses are inland and three on the coast. The problem is that most of the new projects have housing included and do not meet regulations introduced by the Junta four years ago, where they have to justify tourist interest. The affected inland projects are in El Agujetero, Osuna, and Montellano Golf in Sevilla province, Finca Corvite in Almogía and Las Lomás in Casarabonela in Málaga province, Las Lomas del Duque in Lucena, Córdoba, and Castillo de Tajarja in Chimeneas, Granada. The coastal projects are at Hoya Áltica in Almería, Las Palmares between Salobreña and Molvizar in Granada province, and the La Joyita Golf in Barbate, Cádiz.
