Resumption of Construction at La Tejita Beach Hotel by Developer After 2021 Pause

Grupo Viqueira, the developer of La Tejita beach hotel in Tenerife, has announced that construction on the project, which was halted since May 2021, will recommence next week. following an order by the previous Government of the Canary Islands.

According to a statement, the developer has obtained a court ruling from the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands confirming the legality of the project and has taken legal measures to claim compensation for the financial damages incurred during the work suspension.

The Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands’ contentious-administrative chamber has issued three favourable rulings for the hotel developer, with the corresponding organisations being held liable for costs, due to the halted construction ordered by the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, and by the Canary Islands Agency for the Protection of the Natural Environment.

The firm rulings confirm, as per the developer, that all necessary legal permits are in place for the construction to proceed, and the approved boundary modification does not render the project illegal.

Last year, the Save La Tejita Association filed a complaint against the Viqueira Group with the Canary Islands Agency for the Protection of the Natural Environment for carrying out construction activities in an affected area. leading to the stoppage of the hotel construction at La Tejita beach, in the southern part of Tenerife.

The hotel developer reiterates that all necessary authorisations and licenses required for the project have been acquired in compliance with the demarcation approved in 2002, before any revisions were initiated.

The developer expresses regret that “the substantial financial burdens resulting from these arbitrary and unlawful work stoppages will ultimately be borne by the general public.”

The developer mentions that the height of the hotel has been reduced to one level, emphasising that the construction will create nearly 200 direct jobs and over 300 indirect employment opportunities.
