The beach side houses at Babylon beach in Guardamar del Segura have been a contentious issue for awhile now. The pathway in front is dangerous in parts and some of the houses are an eyesore.
The storms this winter brought tides up to 4m in height causing further destruction. Many of the old houses are now in ruin.
Two of the political groups in the town, Queremos Guardamar and Círculo Podemos, want the situation resolved. The houses only remain due to a concession in the Coastal Law which the Territorial Service of Coasts of Alicante believes should now be revoked.
The trouble is that nobody wants to say that the houses should be demolished so does that mean that they will remain?
