Government may be able to expropriate apartments, beach bars and hotels that are near the sea, in exchange for granting its use to its owners for 30 years, extendable for another 30, depending on the case. It would also determine a maximum of 75 years for concessions for activities carried out on the coast. If this regulation were approved, it could affect certain areas of the coast of the province of Cádiz with properties practically at the foot of the sea, within the maritime-terrestrial line.

This is clear from the new modification of the General Coastal Regulations on which the Ministry for the Ecological Transition is working with the firm objective of alleviate the advance of the sea as a consequence of global warming. A document that is being reviewed once the Supreme Court struck down part of the text in January due to a defect in processing.

And according to the Ministry, the coastal area where rocks, promenades, sandy beaches, water and waves converge is “especially sensitive to the rise in mean sea level linked to climate change”.

If approved, if an individual has a house, flat or apartment on land that, due to the rise in sea level, becomes within the maritime land line, it would become public domain. Being property of the state, it could be transferred to the old owner – the owner until now – for 30 years and any reform would have to be approved by the new owner, that is, the State itself. Also in case of wanting to transfer the concession, because the state would have the right of first refusal, which is the right to purchase. Once the concession ends, the state can decide what to do with the property, including its demolition.

Apparently, andThe Constitutional Court already ruled years ago and said that it was perfectly constitutional that the compensation consisted of a concession.

For now, the Government has carried out a “prior public consultation” on the Draft Royal Decree by which a previous decree from 2014 would be modified, by which the General Coastal Regulation. And once the complete draft of the standard is written, it will also be submitted to public information.
