Demolition orders are not always as serious as this. | Sergio G. Cañizares
The Council of Majorca has ordered more demolitions because of illegal building in the past six months than there had been for the previous three years. These demolition orders are one measure adopted to deal with illegal building. In addition, fines are being imposed if orders are ignored. Checks are being made through aerial photography, and some 47,000 euros have been demanded so far.
