The Regional Government of Andalusia has been waiting for more than a year for the Town Hall of Albox to present the documentation that will allow it to legalise the industrial estate of La Venta.

The Board’s document, which can be viewed on the official website, is dated 18 May 2022.

The mayor of Albox, Francisco Torrecillas, a few days ago showed in a campaign video a request addressed to the Delegation of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development in Almeria (the current Delegation of Sustainable Development and Blue Economy) in which he asked for the remission of the Scope Document to initiate the process that concludes with the approval of the Partial Review that affects the Sector S-15 of Albox, the industrial estate of La Venta.


So that we understand, what is requested with this partial revision, is to change the urban qualification of this sector, changing the use to be “Industrial Tertiary”.

The application submitted by Albox Town Council was responded to in May 2022

This request, according to the documentation in the possession of this editorial office, was answered and notified to the Town Hall of Albox on 18 May 2022. It was even published on the website of the Consejería de Medioambiente de la Junta de Andalucía on the same day. From then until today, exactly one year and one week has passed (see cover photo).

Once again the reality dismantles the manipulation attempt of the councillor who, due to lack of interest, neglect or insolvency, after seven years at the head of the Albox Town Hall has been unable to find a solution to a problem that has been dragging the municipality down and which prevents the legalisation of the La Venta industrial estate, with all that this implies.

In this flight forward of the councillor, as he has tried to do with the work on the Rambla, he tries to confuse the neighbours by blaming the Junta de Andalucía which “is asking for a lot of papers”, suggesting that it could be a deliberate delay.

The truth is that a few weeks ago, it was the Delegate Manuel de la Torre himself who described as “false” what Torrecillas claimed, explaining from the Junta de Andalucía that the Territorial Delegation is waiting for the Town Hall of Albox to present the Strategic Environmental Study, in order to continue with the procedure. -In the Strategic Environmental Study the promoter must identify, describe and evaluate the possible significant effects of the Plan on the environment (art. 38.3 of Law 7/2007). Once this study is received, the Territorial Delegation may issue the Strategic Environmental Declaration, which will bring the SEA procedure to an end.

The lack of industrial land in a town that aims to be a reference point in the area is detrimental to local entrepreneurs who are looking for municipalities with greater legal certainty when setting up a company. From then on, investment, job creation and revenue are affected because no one has completed the procedures to consolidate industrial land in the municipality of Albox.
