I. the difficulties and problems that involves adapting urban areas to the requirements imposed by modern technology and the life conditions of the industrial society with its correlative greater demands of community team and quality of its environment and the need to prepare in advance and rational form a settlement, socially and economically appropriate , for the great masses of population in the coming years will increase the towns - on the order of twenty-two million more than inhabitants in Spain only from here to century - come claiming in recent times for its importance and complexity, the attention not only of Governments and men of science, but the citizens around the world.

Therefore with this concern, economic development plans and Social have considered town planning as one of the major issues of our time and incorporated into its pages a diagnosis of the current situation which is obligated starting point for the task of updating legal instruments enabling to cope with the dual objective of solving problems together with the prospects for the future that requires dynamic, hard reversible, the urbanization process, already raised and prevent those that may arise in the future.

II. consideration of the Spanish urban situation does? Despite the efforts of management developed in recent years and the large sums spent to regulate the land market, the urban development process is characterized, in general, by congestive densification of central cities helmets, the disorder of the periphery, urban indiscipline and the unjustified or increasing land prices suitable for the growth of the cities.

The causes of this situation are obviously complex. Some may be located safely within the framework of the legal system, not that this should surprise if you consider that existing law regime of soil and urban planning is promulgated until «urbanization» Spain-accelerated process starts with all its vigor.

Sensed, however, this process by the legislator in one thousand nine hundred and fifty-six, many of the problems involved were proactively referred and it can be said that the principles underlying the law of soil have nearly permanent validity. Rightly this legal text received an excellent reception by scientific critics, and the best proof of your superb technical Bill and the general success of its conception is sixteen years after its enactment may be the structural support of a legislative reform which aims to update the legal system in a plot so conflictual and dynamic reality. And is that as we shall afterwards see, problems do not derive both the validity of those principles, but rather its insufficient development of defective implementation of measures articulated to make them effective, of the unsuitability of such measures to the changing circumstances of the country or the failure or ineffective implementation of these measures.

The causes of the Spanish urban situation, susceptible to treatment with legislative measures, such as the following: to) an insufficient impact of economic planning physical planning and a conception of the urban, inserted in the legislation plan Spanish line with the dominant doctrine at the time of the land law, as a closed document was enacted in that static and finish, early image of the city in the year horizon and limited to the physical aspects of urbanization, which has already been overcome from a theoretical perspective and that is revealed as unable to handle the urban process Dynamics demanded by present circumstances indeed.

(b) the urban indiscipline, permanently invoked apology has found on the unsuitability of the plans to the changing needs and which has been also favoured by bankruptcies that existing legislation offers the principle of fair and equitable distribution of burdens and benefits of planning and urbanization, the helplessness that has been for the public interest application generous principle of responsibility of the management to those affected by the cancellation of licenses illegal, although they could go in his performance, intent, fault or negligence serious; by the ineffectiveness of the instruments of control and restoration of urban order and by the disproportion between the political responsibility of the State bodies that have attributed the urban guardianship office and its effective powers to take proper care of this part of the public interest.

(c) inadequate administrative structures and mechanisms of coordination and supervision between the different administrations concerned, to the growing complexity of the phenomena of urban land-use planning.

(d) the abusive use of promotion of building standards, set out in large number of cases with the primary purpose of circumventing the rigor of the law of leases, and the windfall profits which provides the granting of large volumes of building, not offset by the corresponding charges, factors that have contributed significantly to the densification of urban.

(e) from the point of view of urban development policy, fundamental driving the supply of soil and its excessive price Io is the scarcity of urban land. This shortage is determined primarily by the own plans when they qualify as suitable for eI urban development a number of insufficient ground for, under reasonable conditions of competition, the needs of demand; the accumulated deficit of primary and secondary infrastructure; by a legal regulation of land which has not been sufficient stimulus against the advantages in retaining owners have found from their dominant position in this market and rules of implementation of plans which have been not successful to coordinate private and public investments or by make compatible agility in action and justice in the distribution of benefits and burdens.

The law of soil based its antiespeculativa policy primarily on the ability of the public wealth of soil to be used as controllers of the market and in the legislation on forced alienation of solar unbuilt. The failure of these instruments, as they have been designed, does not doubt.

That excessive elevation of the land prices has had very serious consequences not only higher prices of housing in all categories and industrial establishments and services, but, in addition, undue appropriation by owners deprived of an important part of capital gains arising from the process of urbanization. The scarce amount of loads required by the urban planning legislation and the notorious inadequacy of corrective prosecutors allowed consolidation in private hands of important young public benefits.

III. However the variety and heterogeneity of the explanatory causes of the unsatisfactory urban situation, it is clear that many of them refer to this type of instruments of setting economic and social reality that in the Spanish cultural context translates into legal norms. The eagerness to perfectionist rigorous logical in the conception and implementation of the planning, the idealism of its mechanisms, its low effectiveness to control processes of great vitality and smoothness that have overflowed by the way of a lack of discipline, consensual sometimes even by necessity, and not only the definition of the rights and obligations of the owners, the determination of competencies or the regulation of offences penalties and responsibilities, are reflected in the common framework, which is the legal system. The review of this can and should have decisive influence on the future of urban development. The need for this revision is clear. Is absolutely essential to the definition of a legal framework for urban policy that take advantage of the experience acquired during the term of the land law and is more in keeping with the needs of the present and a reasonable future, so there is established a guidelines that guide the foreseeable growth of urban in the best conditions both from the point of view of the social and the economic.

The reform now proposed tends to correct at the legislative level the situation causes attributable to the legal system, in the context of the above considerations. It is not, therefore, resolve all the issues posed by the growing problem of the urban process. It is intended to influence those problems whose solution can be attempted with legal action and which, in turn, do not demand or a change in the institutional framework of administration or guidelines of the existing law of the land, which is made up of the new provisions. Entrusted to, finally, the Government the recasting of fundamental planning regulations and these and other related, in the smallest possible number of texts, in order to minimize bankruptcies of the principle of unity of basic special legislation of the land law embodied so much and which now is served including the provision integration further in other legal precepts of this law than texts but its urban content, are estimated to be typical of other regulatory bodies.


IV. to fill the gap in the legal system in order to connect with the socio-economic planning physical planning is regulated "ex novo» the figure of the directors territorial coordination plans, of indeterminate space sector a priori, and to which is assigned as mission critical, the noted the broad guidelines which have to guide and coordinate the planning of the territory within forecasts of development plans and with the proper attention to the problems of the environment, and to establish the physical framework in which to develop coordinated forecasts, searchable especially, of economic and social planning. In this respect, cares the adequate participation of State and local agencies in the elaboration of the master plans and attributed its approval, which is binding on all the authorities concerned, the Council of Ministers.

Municipal general management plans are now conceived as open plans, not evolutionary, non-homogeneous, and fixed term enabling, a part, the incorporation of unforeseen, the assimilation of the margin of unpredictability to new or changing requirements, and another, the differentiation of the proposals for own planning with different treatment for them, as for fixity and concretion as they are scheduled.

Thus, on the different kinds of land defined by the Plan, management strategies long-term, broad timeless structures given in general schemes, together with specific programmed actions, will be raised insert in those guidelines, to a realization in the short or medium term. It is to eliminate excessive, not assured determinations technically or economically, and increase the degree of definition and reliability of those elements necessary and required for the immediate development of the city. The proposals of urban structure thus constitute the plot of physical reference to the temporary implementation of its development program.

Another important aspect is the incorporation of forms of action of private initiative, which experience has shown to be usable, and currently have difficulties to occur within the law. It is opening new channels to the activity and capacity of private agents of urbanization for a good part of the process of urban development by units of some entity. Within this approach sets the framework to the Plan may assimilate formulas of urbanism concluded within a system of guarantees and obligations enabling select and sift those proceedings in accordance with its objectives.

Thus, as, along with the planned development, it appears in the project, within the framework of regulated and set by the plans, an eventual development, whose way of demonstrating will influence the further evolution of the Plan and will require its correction and adjustment. Without the commitments of the current "urban reserve", the special field of this flooring, merely possible estate, may have a wide range.

All of the above must have an immediate impact on the supply of urban land, which, as indicated already, is at the base of the problem of speculation. Planned system significantly reduces the effects of the current regarding possible creation of monopolies in favour of owners of land favored by discriminatory concessions of goodwill generated by own planning and the limitation of land that comes with it.

The new details that are entered in the regulation of the partial plans correspond to the purpose of correcting the defects that the experience has highlighted and, primarily, to make them more operating, even at the expense of a greater development effort.

Other important innovations are introduced in the normative framework of this figure. For the first time are designated in General and with a proper formulation minimum allowance for public parks and gardens, for temples, educational and cultural centres and for parking. The settlement with general character of these endowments does not exhaust its virtuality to ensure that minimum collective team, but it largely determines the maximum development potential. In point subject to soil for cultural and educational purposes are assumed as their own urban development policy and with the maximum range of normative demands arising from the General Law of education.

In General is also set a standard for the whole country, according to which, in the absence of Management Plan or urban norm authorizing it, not even the urban land can build higher than three floors above the grade of the land. It thus covers a very important gap in our legal system, which does not provide for a limitation to the construction in urban land without plan, with apparent inconsistency in relation to the whole of limitations arising from urban planning and "ex lege" eliminating the possibility of the urban excesses that as a result of the lagoon has been able to produce.

The new regulation of the special plans makes express reference to reIacionadas with the natural environment and cultural heritage issues and cares for completing the regulations in relation to the reform of the populations. The urban development projects receive a precise definition in terms of its nature and content.

The sort of detail of non-programmed actions executed directly by the administration or agreed with individuals, facilitated through a figure of planning involved the nature of plans and projects.

Experience has shown that subsidiaries and complementary planning standards are in many cases, for reasons of urgency or for the small entity or complexity of the problems, the instrument more adapted to deal with them. The new regulation develops the existing to permit their use as convenient, with greater involvement of local authorities and without bankruptcy warranties due to the interested parties or the minimum requirements of urban art.

The existing precepts of the land law in relation to the monuments or singular buildings have led, in practice, to frequent abusive actions, with notorious violation of general compulsory schemes which are enshrined in the law. With the new regulation modifications of management approved only may take place for reasons of public interest and through the paperwork and formalities established in General.

V. Changes that are introduced into the regulation of urban land are mainly inspired by the following principles: the ability to build the Plan gives it, but the right to build conditions, with all its consequences, to the effective fulfillment of the duties and charges imposed on the owner within the time limits provided for in the Plan itself.

The expectation of urban destination occurs gradually in various times. General Plan, except in urban land, and if the Master Plan, linked to certain negative land, closing the possibility of its future development. For others, they are limited to direct future programming criteria, but without prejudging any specific expectations.

The regulation of the use of some land at the level of partial Plan consolidates concretely the expectation of urbanization. However, this expectation is not definitive, if it is not immediately followed by execution of urbanization and the compliance by the owner of their obligations and charges. On the other hand, is conditioned on deadlines for revocation which allow, against its owner, reintegrate land automatically to your primitive rustic situation where the immediate implementation of the Plan would not be frustrated. This expiration period has a multiple warranty; to the legal traffic safety this term warrants that prior to your course, any reduction in the use implies expropriation and, therefore has to be compensated by the Administration that made the decision. For the public interest, ensuring a part that, within this period, you may reconsider the circumstances and adopted a new decision without any constraint, and another, considerably reducing the risk and significance of scores which are not followed by effective and immediate investment, and stimulating in an indirect way, that is expected to be effective, the necessary supply of soil.

Plans only attribute in programmed the right to use medium (deduced from that laid down in the Plan itself, which corresponds to the Administration). No owner acquires the right to use more than the means of Plan. All have, in the point of departure, the same right. The principle of equitable distribution of burdens and benefits of planning which only operates at the level of sector, without correcting inequalities between these by very large that they were, in the law takes as well, all new residential floor, its ultimate consequences.

The classification of the soil remains key for the determination of the legal regime applicable to the land and to the regulation of the process of urban development.


The definition of urban land is purged of the ambiguities of the current and is made to depend on the physical fact of the basic urbanization, and although at the time of the adoption of the Plan a delimitation of that soil is entrusted to it, not that is the reason why the concept loses its dynamic character. The basic effect of this classification is that by the physical characteristics of the soil - basically urbanized - and its insertion in the urban mesh, from regulation of detail that incorporates the General Plan itself, is agiIiza the completion of the urbanization process.

The Plan differentiates from there two kinds of soil: the developable and non-developable land.

The first is that is considered suitable, in principle, to be urbanized. This urbanization is expected to judiciously voluntarist, according to programmes, for a part of this soil and only as purely as possible under certain circumstances for the rest.

In the undeveloped, its own values of order agricultural, landscape, etc., or desirability of limiting urban dynamics, excludes any possible use of this class.

The principle according to which the planning does not grant the right to build directly is reflected, in terms of valuations of the soil, in the adoption of the criteria according to which the value that this is recognized should be depending on the degree of fulfilment of obligations and burdens arising from the Plan that is observed in each case. The value becomes independent, largely, of pure formal qualifications and is fundamentally dependent on the effective implementation of the Plan, which also depends on the acquisition of the right to build.

The innovations in this area, which involves a close relationship with the tax assessment and a great simplification, complete: to) leading to its ultimate consequences the principle of objective assessment which was broken in the land law with the recognition of «trade» values and that was causing disproportionate in relation to the circumstances, sometimes trivial differences in practice that they gave rise to the application of one or other value; b) eliminating the expectant value applicable so far to the «urban» reservation, regardless of the activity of those concerned, and c) recognizing tenants and tenants affected by expropriations, as a passive, generally weaker, of the same subjects, the right to be compensated in accordance with the law on compulsory expropriation.

Capital point of the new regulations is that refers to free transfers of land. The imposition of these return for the benefits of the process of urbanization has roots in the Spanish legal tradition.

The new regulation extends the obligation to assign land free of charge in favour of the competent administration, in General, conditions that can be only moderate the Council of Ministers, after obtaining the opinion of the Council of State for infrastructures and urban equipment.

The project goes yet one step further: not only facilitates the free obtaining of non buildable or non-profit uses, but imposes the free transfer to the competent administration of private buildable - 10% of that corresponding to the programmed average utilization and also the result of the tender in the scheduled non-, as one component of the just compensation required of owners by the benefits derived from the process urban.

This measure intends: to) facilitate urban management and consequent soil preparation, offering management bodies the possibility of free of charge all the land corresponding infrastructures and urban equipment, by the mechanism of buildable to affected owners compensation; (b) rescue a part of urban capital gains in the form of buildable land, which is also the base of the municipal heritages of the soil and provide at the same time financing of works of the primary infrastructure and urban equipment.

In the same line to facilitate urban management, without degradation of principles of Justice, the compensation mechanism is simplified so substantial. The amount of the contributions is made to depend on as a general rule the surface and the process takes off paperwork and unnecessary requirements.

VI. progress in incorporation of techniques of planning more adapted to the present needs and all developments in order to improve the legal regime of the soil with criteria of Justice could become useless if plans and those affected by them not found in the path of standards governing its execution a runway agile and fluid able to both help the plans actually urban transformation and give those affected a reasonable framework for the exercise of their rights and the correlative fulfillment of obligations.

General systems - arterial networks, large supplies, etc. - are normally executed by the administration. Corresponding soil will be available in a few cases by the mechanism of transfer, offset by the award of the average elsewhere use; in others, by the same mechanism of the resulting transfers of concerted planning operations, which can result in addition, occasionally, to own promoters run at its own cost a substantial part of those general systems. The expropriation will be the normal mode of obtaining soil in other cases, and public funding, the ordinary means of pay systems. Such funding is however provided in the project with the provision in kind of the public wealth of the soil.

The implementation of the other provisions of the Plan takes place normally through polygons and partial plans of action.

The concept of "polygon", of the greatest importance to these effects, is, however, defined in vague terms in the law of the land. Hereinafter is configured as "unity of action" extremely flexible in the planning. His concrete determination entrusted plans or, failing that, to the relevant urban bodies, with the only requirement that have an extension that justifies their autonomy and be able to take on assignments arising from the plans.

From this determination has been necessary to introduce important innovations with regard to performance «systems», which are legally provided for different regulations to implement the Plan in each polygon.

Experience has shown that the real alternatives that can be used are the following: a) expropriation of land and urbanization by the managing body by public funds, even these are obtained in some cases through special contributions, and b) maintenance of the owners considered generically in the ownership of land, but on the basis that come to an equitable sharing of the buildable volume cedan free soil earmarked for roads, parks and gardens, temples, educational and cultural centers and other services of general interest and defray the corresponding works of urbanization.

Reform, in this as in other fields, make an effort of clarification and simplification and regulates these two basic scenarios under the names of expropriation, cooperation and compensation systems.

Touch-ups of the system of expropriation are essentially of a technical; they tend mostly to correct such deficiencies observed in practice. Through changes, both the expropriation general legislation as of the mortgage, mechanisms that facilitate access to the land registry of the goods object of these proceedings, without loss to the guarantees of the owners and holders of real rights in terms of the economic content of their rights are implemented and the necessary are devoted cautelas to make compatible the safety of the urbanization process and the respect of private interests.

The regulation of the cooperation and compensation systems clearly distinguishes the two fundamental operations: the distribution of soil and buildable volume between the affected and the execution of infrastructure works. The distribution of the volume when it is imposed is provided, regarding the criteria until now prevailing, as before already has been collected, where the fee to each owner, unless exceptional circumstances, is made to depend exclusively on the surface of which each is the owner at the time immediately prior to the subdivision.

Not programmed urbanizable performances have been «ex novo» of a special regulation according to its nature.

It is not in the case of immediate execution of all determinations of a plan, that there more than their minimum conditions, but to articulate the mechanisms through which is can update, to initiative of administration or managed, the potential urban destination as mere possibility provided for in the plan for that soil.

In so far as the transformation in urban of that soil is can not operate or simultaneously, or pursuant to a program of action which by hypothesis is there, it is necessary to establish clearly the principles to which the administrative action must be adjusted to promote or simply address this process in which the action of private actors is called to play a role as.


The project is inspired by the respect to the beginning of equality before the law from the minimum requirements of technical and economic order. Any initiative of interested owners that occurs within the framework of the legal limits undergoes therefore normally the contrast with similar ones that may arise by other owners. He is guaranteed, at the same time, opportunities between the managed identity, the biggest advantage to the Administration as a result of the concurrence and desirable objectivity in the selection of the most suitable offers to the general interest. The project does not neglect either the social intention that, in many cases, these actions may have and then establishes the precise peculiarities. The implementation in this class of soil of productive activities, which cannot be subject to the normal system of the previous tender, importance and unique features is surrounded, in defense of the public interest, the maximum guarantees.

Naturally, a process of these characteristics can not trusting its integrity to the stimulus of market forces, and therefore has an inducing action of the Administration, which in its starting point may consist of just a call to the activity of private owners to complete or direct the spontaneous development, but that may end in the absence of a satisfactory response, in the assumption by the administration of supplementary or specific actions that, upon expropriation of the lands, running public bodies directly or through dealers.

VII. amendments to existing legislation relating to compulsory building are collected in the preliminary draft tend to correct the deficiencies observed in his time.

It is protected, also these cases, tenants, entrusting to the provincial judges of expropriation the application in its favor of principles under which compensation received is real equivalence with the economic damage causing by the forced abandonment of their housing.

To reduce as far as possible the densification of urban or for reasons of clear social interest, and without prejudice to the possible revision of the plans, is put at the disposal of the competent bodies the possibility of suspending, by term limited or indefinitely, the regime of compulsory construction in all or part of the municipalities where the parents building densities or other urban or social circumstances so warrant it.

VIII. the right to surface as a formula of dissociation of ownership and use of land is a figure who is deserving increasing attention in all countries as an instrument of politics from the ground. In Exchange for a temporary limitation in the use of the land, these at a lower cost, are obtained which reduces the initial volume of resources required in real estate or in other productive activities to cater for the needs of demand. It also represents a stimulus for the mobilization of the ground by private owners, who can thus put on the market these assets available to developers without renouncing its future recovery with the corresponding revaluation. The promotion and encouragement of dwellings for rent can be found in the right to surface a complement of great interest.

From the perspective of the public wealth of soil, the surface rights can and should be an instrument by which, each time more, make sure that the right of ownership of urban land, once it enters the patrimonial area of administration, not out of public ownership; the increase not only in space, but in time, the heritages of soil, must remain key part of urban policy.

The most important innovations in this area consist of the extension object, purpose, time and modalities of consideration. With these innovations and the granting of certain benefits are designed to create indispensable economic and legal budgets for this figure stops being a pure legal possibility and acquires Charter of nature in the Spanish urban reality.

IX. in order to ensure a greater involvement of the administrations and bodies effectively concerned in planning decisions and greater effectiveness to the determinations of the Planning Administration, establishing the Central Planning Commission as College of inter-ministerial coordination and the competence to approve the plans of upper range is attributed to the Council of Ministers and the resolve all matters at the discretion of the Minister of housing from spreading the mandatory opinion of the Central Commission.

The Central Planning Commission is set up as a body of work and advice of great technical and administrative relief and integrates in its bosom a representation of the organs of the Central Administration with greater responsibilities in the matter, of the local administration in general, local authorities affected by each resolution and the trade union organization. Expected as well not only to the greater success of the determinations of the Government and of the owner of the Housing Ministry, but rather the set of commitments that these will be incorporated give plans that superior moral authority which is the best guarantee of their observance. On the basis of this greater inter-ministerial, local and social participation in decision-making relating to urban planning, it redirects to a few more consistent runways with the general criteria and the appropriate urban planning of the territory, the modification or review of plans, resulting from initiatives of the various ministerial departments that need advise.

X all the powerful arsenal of technical instruments, economic and legal so far referred, placed at the service of a conception of the urban development that already properly dosed ingredients of freedom and intervention, can be quite ineffective, if the last and final link in the chain breaks. The effective implementation of urban planning laws and management plans.

The innovations contained in the project are directed precisely to dispel as far as possible the causes of that phenomenon of urban development discipline that previously has been analyzed and that it is necessary to correct. It is, above all, prevent the infringement, because only prevents the social cost involved in any offence. Seeks by all means to make disappear any stimulus to the antisocial behaviour of the alleged offenders, that could result from the inadequacies of the legal system. To assumed that, despite everything, the offence, committed the entire weight of the law with its attendant sanctions and responsibilities should fall on the convicted offender and at its single expense, shall prevail in the general interest.

The urban order established by the Plan comes to be made effective, ultimately, through its management control through licensing.

In order that all acts of individuals that represent a physical transformation of the ground or space, are subject to license and this, in turn, granted in accordance with the existing planning, proposed a series of legislative amendments aimed all them to maintain and, if necessary, to restore the urbanistic legality.

The suspension and demolition of the works executed without license, the license or under a licence granted in contravention of the provisions of the Plan; the configuration of urban development infractions and its sequel of economic sanctions, without prejudice, of course, reset 'in natura' violated urban order and the liability of offenders are, primarily, the reform subject matter.

Instrumentally a new regulation is given to the system of actions and resources, which comes to collect, through substantial remission, general management produced on the occasion of the promulgation of the legal texts that govern, after the land of law, both the administrative process, the courts of that order, as the internal procedure of the Administration itself.

Licensing reaffirms the capital beginning before indicated, subject to such administrative control all acts that mean a material transformation of land or space. The licensing is deferred to the municipal administration, which thus continues to be the linchpin of the realization of the provisions of the planning.

Leave central position in the urban system is reinforced with the system which intends to suspend and even demolish the works that they are made without license or observance of its provisions. The existing land law was limited to provide for the suspension of the works that were running in such conditions, without addressing the assumptions already accomplished works without legal title that defend them. In addition, in the current regulations was the administration which should show a certainly extreme diligence to leave definitively suspended works that were implemented in such poor conditions.

In the new regulation expands the cases of demolition of works which were already executed, provided that not more than one year he had since his termination, term that deemed sufficient so that the Administration can warn the emergence of illegal works.


On the other hand are reversed the positions of the Administration and of the offender; It is the applicant, once ordered the suspension of the works or appreciated the illegality of the already executed, who must request timely license, so that if it does not, or its provision is contrary to the Plan, proceed to its demolition.

Finally, point to competence for such measures, the project is absolutely respectful with the position that the law grants to councils as last but capital link in the administrative organization of urban planning. Certainly expands the powers that already had the civil Governors to carry out such agreements suspension and demolition, but with respect to this last, a subsidiary title; only in cases where the municipality does not by itself and always after submit the matter to the attention of the municipal corporation to make it that adopt appropriate measures.

The legal system must necessarily be another case of restoring the urbanistic legality in cases that are underway or have been made under a license works, Yes, but granted in contravention of the applicable planning. In such cases, it is necessary to destroy that legal title which, even flawed, is the support of a declaration of rights in favour of the managed. Nothing better to carry out this objective that go with the modulations relevant to systems that the general administrative regulation provides for suspension and cancellation of nursing declaratory acts of rights.

Not all cases of breach of planning can be, logically, determined the suspension of the effects of a licence or the same cancellation. Only in those cases in which to appreciate a violation which, besides being manifested, is serious, there is place at sunset in outstanding legal mechanism of restoration of violated urban order action. Those matters which, because of notorious urban importance, determine the qualification of the gravity of the acts committed against the requirements of the planning are defined elsewhere in the legal text. The «manifesto» nature of the offence is committed in each case to the appreciation, in short, of the courts of Justice.

As in the case of works without or against license cases, expected the double course of works licensed in course of execution or works also licensed already implemented. The restoration of violated planning law is carried out in the first course through a technique already introduced in the general legal system: the administrative authority suspends the execution of the work and within a short and peremptory period gives performances moved to the administrative courts, which will be ultimately who, through the special process under the law of that jurisdiction decide, appreciating the existence or not of manifest infringement in the urban area considered as severe, if the suspension agreement is revoked, or, conversely, also tainted in those terms leave maintained, being annulled. In the second case, works performed, it empowers the Administration, provided that not more than four years has elapsed since the issuance of the license, to proceed with the revision of trade, through the legal procedures established in the legal texts that constitute the ordinary law of administrative procedure.

As regards the powers to adopt the agreements of suspension and cancellation, follows similar criteria than for works carried out without a license, which was above designated.

The restoration of the violated urban order requires further extend the suspension measures of the effectiveness of administrative acts contrary to law to other agreements that formalized in terms of building permit have a sometimes irreversible impact on the implementation of the plans. For such cases the project adopts the same technique of suspension of trade which in the case of contrary to planning licences. The Administration, once agreed suspension, immediate transfer to the courts of the administrative courts that ultimately rule on the validity of the suspended agreement.

The adoption of measures that have been exposed to ensure the maintenance of the urbanistic legality does not exclude the possibility that the violators are punished economically with administrative fines, or prevent, clear is, that those workers affected by town planning illegal actions get in the ordinary courts of Justice appropriate compensation for damages to cargo of the offenders.

For these purposes, is defined with large-scale urban development infraction, pointing to those matters in which a breach of their prescriptions is considered serious, the effects of adopting, if such infringement is manifest, measures of suspension or demolition before reviewed. Determine the different assumptions of authorship or imputability of the infringement with a strict criteria and sets the principle that, as well as the imposition of fines responsibilities are independent for each of the offenders, on the other hand, facing the third parties and in civil liability via, this has solidarity character.

The restoration of the urban order can ultimately generate responsibilities for the Administration itself. It is obvious that when the restoration of urbanistic legality measures occur without that has mediated a previous administrative intervention, as it is the case of the works executed without license, there is no to responsibilities carried out by the Administration, since the injury that meant to the person concerned the suspension or demolition agreement is detrimental to the full support that is the same and not the Administration who has created the status of illegitimacy, which comes to be corrected by the further administrative action. This same conclusion should bring cases of infringement of the legal title that authorizes the performance of the individual, that is, the assumptions of works executed in contravention of the terms of the license.

However, the solution is not necessarily the same when the restoration of the urbanistic legality previously required the destruction of a legal diploma issued by the Administration itself. If the performance of the individual is covered in a license, issued by the Administration, it should be raised if the cancellation of such declarative legal title rights and their consequent measures executive compensation of damages in favour of the holder of the licence.

The project, at this point, collects the principle of responsibility of the management, formulated in general terms, subsequent to the law of the land, by the law on legal regime of the administration of the State. On the other hand, gets the text another rule sanctioned by the common law: nobody can use of fraud to obtain compensation, nor grossly negligent conduct nor can protect to take advantage of it. Hence, consistently with the enumeration of the assumptions of authorship or responsibility of urban planning violations, excluded liability to managing cases of intent, fault or negligence serious, attributable to the injured person, whose appreciation is reserved to the courts.

Finally, in terms of procedure, both in the internal area of the administrative organization insofar as the actions and resources before the contentious, is carried out a remarkable simplification, conscious, as above said, that this matter should not to stay the general regulations on procedure. Hence that administrative and contentious-administrative resource is deleted the complicated system of the land law to receive and refer is set that in the law of administrative procedure and the administrative courts.

Retained as unique specialty in the common system in terms of legitimacy to resort called public action, already introduced by the law of soil, even though it says the time limit within which it may be exercised.

Also noted that project, eco-as much as possible with the legal regime of the municipal action, suppresses cases where appeals against municipal agreements before the State administration were established. All agreements of the city councils will be directly contested before the contentious.
