A long standing row over six illegal buildings on Tabarca Island (off the coast of Santa Pola and Alicante) is set to end with the bulldozers coming in this September.

The properties were declared illegal by the Valencia High Court back in 2003 but have been mired in a set of legal disputes.

The buildings have been vandalised over the years, as well as being the subject of compensation battles involving people who bought the illegally built homes as well as disagreements  between the Valencian  Government and the Alicante Coastal Services Council.

Plans to convert the old lighthouse into a hotel have also been rejected by the authorities.
