Paramount Murcia "Unconstitutional" : Ecologists

Tue 15th Jan 2013
Paramount Murcia 'Unconstitutional' : Ecologists

The "Ecologists in Action" Environmental group has submitted a report to the courts concerning the viability of the Paramount Pictures Theme Park at Alhama de Murcia.

The Group considers that the project is 'unconstitutional' and has called upon the courts to observe the 8th provison of the Ley 1/2001 concerning rural land. Ecologists in Action claim that around 21% of the planned footprint for the park falls with designated boundary of the Carrascoy natural park, which is classified as a 'protected natural area'.

For this reason, the Environmentalists have called for the Supreme Court to ensure that the 21% footprint in question is protected. Given that the park is already undersized by around 30% after problems with a number of induvidual plots prevented the group from purchasing 550'000 of the intended 1,812,926 sq mts, it is thought that the project can ill-afford to lose a further 250'000 sq mt in potential building space.

Comment on this Story

Paramount Pictures, of course, were elated at the announcement that Spain had allocated Murcia for their proposal to build their very own theme park! much the same as you and I would be had we won the EuroVision Song Contest, but Murcia, yes, Murcia, 378 days of unblemished sunshine.. "..Rejoiced such tidings good to hear, the Investers flocked from far and near.." And the Province of Murcia (with the Investors monies) built this Masterpiece. Truly a state of the art that should surely be the Eighth Wonder of the World, second only to the Great Spanish Armada. Such global interest and financial success was this (and it certainly was "as full as it could hold") that along came the "Ecologists in Action" Environmental Group, and probably a few other Property Developers and stated: "According to Spanish Law this site is illegal". To cut this long story short and as is usual in Spain, the lot was bull-dozed down to the ground..except for the first stone laid, left for historic purposes...
