The non-payment of a tax debt exceeding 250,000 euros has led the Municipal Urban Planning Management to order the definitive closure and the withdrawal of the activity license to the Isla del Mar terrace. This was reported by the Councilor for Urban Planning, Carlos Tarife, that will take the file today to the Governing Council of Urbanism.
In this way, the lease contract for the plot on which the terrace is located is given up, the guarantee that was put in deposit at the time for an amount of 6,200 euros is seized and, in addition, it is established that the company must bear the costs of returning the site to its original condition, that is, the facilities must be dismantled. Along with all this, the revocation of the precarious authorizations granted to the company to carry out the activity as a summer terrace in 2012 will also begin.
Once the file is approved, the owners will be informed that they will have 10 days to present the corresponding allegations. As Tarife explained, “although we had initially reached an agreement on the tax debt, so that they were going to pay it through the Tax Consortium, an entity to which we derived the payment to apply the executive route, by requiring The company that provided us as a mortgage guarantee the property that they had put as collateral before the Consortium, it did not do so within the term that we stipulated, that is why we have been forced to make this decision ”. In the event that the company provides that mortgage guarantee within ten days of allegations, the file would be paralyzed and the initial payment agreement would continue.
In any case, the time for which this terrace or another (Urban Planning is willing to tender a new concession) would be for one year, the time that Heritage estimates it will take to make the offer to purchase this land from the Canary Islands Government effective, in the one that wants to install the Multiple Use Building III, to move the Multiple I (on Anaga avenue) to this new space.
