Demolition of British Homes in Spain, please support the Facebook Campaign.
 
Dear all,
 
There have been 8 demolition orders issued to British homeowners in Albox, a small town in the province of Andalucia in the South of Spain.
 
Building permissions were applied for and issued for these houses around 2002.  These permissions were subsequently revoked, and court proceedings commenced to get these houses demolished.  These proceedings have taken about 7 years to come to fruition, resulting in these demolition orders which have now been issued to the householders.
 
At no time during these proceedings were the homeowners informed of what was happening.  The orders were served during the last two weeks with little or no explanation to those affected.
 
Among several other initiatives there is a facebook campaign to highlight the plight of these unfortunate homeowners.
 
Please, please, please help those affected by spreading this as far as possible.

    This is a shameful situation which cannot  be allowed to happen. "Grey" might symbolise old but it definately doesnt signify stupid and unresourceful!
     
    Please help us to make sure it doesn´t. It could happen to you!
