Untidy land will lead to fines
San Juan de la Rambla says it is going to get tough on land owners who fail to keep plots of land clean and tidy.
The local council has been worried about the state of some areas of the municipality for some time and is con-cerned about the threat of fire, as well as the spread of pests and diseases as well as the general appearance.
A new order is to be made which will fine owners if they fail to tidy up their vacant land and in some cases put fences up. The owners can either do the work themselves, pay the council to do it or give the land to the authority under the exchange system.
Breaches will fall into the category of minor, serious and very serious and will lead to the relevant penalties, usually economic.
The Mayoress, Fidela Velázquez said it was up to everyone to respond to the order and to act responsibly to ensure a better quality of life for all.
