Dear Sir/MadamI am the owner of a farm in the province of Cadiz southern spain. I myself, together with several of my farming neighbours have received a certificated letter from the Junta De Andalucia, informing us that they have approved an application from the utility company Endesa to install very large pylons and high tension cables across our farm land, in my case, very close to my house.They say that as they had received no objections to the application, which Endesa had publicized 3 times in the bolitin official and on the notice board in the offices of the local authority for the required time of 20 days. Thus the approval was given.Only professional people i.e. lawers, accountants etc. have the need and the staff to scrutinize the bolitin official and notice boards daily.As this is a very important issue. I would kindly ask if there is any EU law which requires the applicant, or the local authority to notify in writing any land owners concerned, that they have a statutory period of time to make an objection.Many thanksGraham Kenney.
I am an spanish attorney and I am sorry to say that oficial boletins like BOE ( Boletin Oficial del estado ) o Boletín oficial de la Junta de Extremadura ( BOEX ) are both of them, and there are one in each Comunidad autonoma, are an oficcial way to comunicate relevatns facts to the citicen
And it thats mean that once your name its on one of them you has been legaly notificated, because its supposed all of we read all of them every single day
Its so cracy like its sound as written but its what it is and how its legally
So, if the name of you had been publicated on them, you could easily use the webs to find it, you have been notificated in a legal way
Actually they used to notify road fines and penalties.
So the way againts Endesa its not that they have notified, You have to look for another ways, better as gruop of neighbourgs with an attorney who will defend your rights
Actually its the only way you have against endesa, take part with an atorney and better if you make a group, its cheaper and easily to fight, even when never its easy to fight with Endesa, but its your only way
I am sorry to have so bad answer for you, but its what it is the law in Spain
Even, I will add there its an oficial boletin of CEE which its supposed to be readen for all of us
