Torrevieja council has completed 111 cases for breaches of the municipal ordinance with regard to unsightly and illegal advertising billboards in the town. In so doing they have collected 46,800 euros in fines.
Over one hundred files were opened through the SUMA office, almost all to the same advertising company, most of which have now been settled with fines amounting to 46,862 euros.
In eight cases, the fine was reduced because the company adopted measures to comply with the law provided in the ordinance, which only allows this type of activity to be carried out under license.
The municipal actions to put a stop to this type of land use began with the previous municipal government and has intensified in the current mandate. Unfortunately there are many plots of land that are the responsibility of the Generalitat or the Ministry of Development and where the city council is unable to act.
