I have a map from the valencian government showing me the protected coastal areas that cannot be built on. On checking its shows a protection zone of 100 metres from the coast. this law was written in 1988 and revised in 2013. I have a neighbour that plans to build a villa within that boundary. Does anyone know if this can be legal as I understand that the Ley Da Costa ruels apply to the whole of spain? he tells me he has planning permission from the town hall, I dont believe this.

If anyone can shed any light on this it will be greatly appreciated.

It is of course impossible to know if he has got a permission, that you will have to check. If he does, and he builds, he is still, as you suggest, in danger of having to pull down his building later on - due to national regulations. However the expected court case may take several years, and the outcome is never absolutely given, even when law is clear. 

Here is a couple of links that might be helpful. They are ment for the other party, but still useful I imagine:

In some cases municipal ruling conflicts with higher leves rulings. Naval, territorial, and municipal interests superseed mutually an can become a nightmare.

Thank you for your response, it is so frustrating and there are so many corrupt people here in spain. I know we have the weather,  good health and cheaper living than the UK however the injustices and frustrations may just be too much. Once again many thanks to you

Whilst I would sympathise with your query and understand your frustration, I take issue with the bald statement that ‘ there are so many corrupt people here in Spain etc etc’ .  This is, I hope, a statement borne out of difficulties dealing with systems that are markedly different from UK. I agree things can be problematic at times, but can see no justification for sweeping statements such as this.

Hello

  Having read this thread, I  am yet to understand why your neighbours proposed plans -- away from your home, have any bearing on you?

Cheers

I wasnt asking for anyones advice/ opinions. I have had a house on spain for >40 years  the Uk as ypu know has its problems. I was just saying that somwtimes the frustrations can outweigh the positives. 

There have been a lot of senior officials imprisoned here. It is was it is but hey thanks for caring!
