Calp Casas Neptuno

Considering the concern caused among the citizens of Calpe about the works carried out in Casas Neptuno, the Town Council of Calp plans to request the Generalitat Valenciana to maximize vigilance in relation to all those actions taking place in this plot. This decision is motivated, in addition, by the fact that the General Department for Heritage, dependent on the autonomous government for Culture, has granted so far all the authorizations for the works requested by the company.


In this way, Conselleria granted permission for the realization of some first excavations of the land and then for the demolition of the buildings, action that is under process including the removal of the paving stones and all those contemporary elements that are in the land of the said construction.


In addition, Conselleria has already granted the authorization for the next phase corresponding to the excavation of the land. This procedure is the one that will determine the existence or not of archaeological remains and their value, which should lead Conselleria to decide if the company can build or not on this plot.


"We ask the General Department for Heritage the maximum surveillance, diligence and responsibility in all actions that are carried out in relation to the land of Casas Neptuno, a matter that worries us greatly," said the Mayor César Sánchez. 


Sánchez has also announced that the Town Council will hire an archaeologist to supervise all the actions that are carried out in these areas.


The Town Council reiterates, in addition, that in no way will it grant a planning permission in these lands without the mandatory and binding authorization of the said body, which is the authority responsible for the corresponding authorizations to carry out any action in these lands since it is an area of possible archaeological interest.
