Andalucía, Asturias, Catalunya, Canaries and the Basque Country challenge 'Ley de Costas' in Constitutional Court
09 July 2013 @ 18:35

FIVE regional governments in Spain are appealing against the newly-redrafted Coastal Law, or Ley de Costas, via the Constitutional Court.

Andalucía, the Canary Islands, Catalunya, the Basque Country and Asturias say the law text violates the right to equality and invades regional government jurisdiction.

Their regional environmental and planning ministers recall that over half of Spain's coastline is in these federal communities - the rest belonging to Cantabria, Galicia, Murcia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands - and that they should therefore be allowed to make their own judgments rather than being dictated to by the central government in Madrid, which does not even have a coastline.
