Licences for new build properties surge by 45% in Torrevieja, Spain

Council reveals new homes figures for 2017

Torrevieja Town Hall issued 251 building permits for the construction of 730 new build homes last year.

The figure highlights the magnitude of the recovery in the local property market, and represents a 45% increase in the number of new homes approved for construction in the previous year.

502 new homes were licenced in 2016, and the latest official figures are a significant improvement over the Spanish property market´s darker times a decade ago, when new home registrations fell below 200 properties per year.

Torrevieja Councilwoman, Fanny Serrano, revealed earlier this week that the majority of the building permits granted were issued for new properties in the Aguas Nuevas area of Torrevieja, and upscale new build developments adjacent to Calle Escorpiones, on the border between the city and the coastal Orihuela Costa town of Punta Prima.

Despite the lack of availability of land in Torrevieja, applications for new build developments are expected to continue to flourish throughout 2018.
