This is a translation of an article produced bt Euroopa Press on 14th December under the title.

El Gobierno de Canarias inspeccionará en 2011 la planta alojativa turística para detectar las camas ilegales.

In 2011 the Canarian Government will inspect tourist accommodation to detect illegal beds.


The Canarian Government has decided that in 2011, as a result of the PSC-PSOE (a political alliance) saying that there are 400 000 illegal beds as well as 650 000 that are clandestine, it will put in motion an inspection of all the tourist accommodation on the islands for the purpose of evaluating the beds that, though offered as tourism based, are illegal.

This was announced in a full meeting of the Chamber by the Minister for the Economy and Taxes, Jorge Rodríguez. in a presentation brought by the socialist deputy Olivia Estévez about the administrative situation with respect to the tourist accommodation in the Canary islands.

In his speech he explained that this plan of action had been planned by the inspection service of the department of tourism of the Canarian Government, to find the establishments with guest facilities as well as to find out how many are being used for tourism purposes without informing the authorities before starting to do so, or without authorisation.

This plan, included in "El Pacto de Fuerteventura" will come to define how many such establishments are operating in the Canary Islands. With this aim 17 inspectors will work in the updating of the records of the tourist accommodation on the islands.

Once this program has been carried out and the corresponding report has been drawn up to outline the size of the problem they will be able to take the measures they deem advisable to put right this problem.

In the meantime the minister explained that the number of authorized tourist beds in the Canary islands is 430 021 in 3 033 establishments, of which 645 are hotels and 2 388 are other accomodation other than hotels.

By Island, in lanzarote there are 315 establishments and 71 517 places (53 hotels and 262 others); Fuerventura has 205 establishments and 65 271 places (80 hotels and 125 others); Gran Canaria has 855 establishments with 140 340 places (151 hotels and 704 others).

Laziness and Opportunism

Meanwhile, the socialist deputy underlined the importance of tourism to the Canaries, as much for the ecomomy as for employment, and rejected any claim that she might be acting in a lazy and politically oportunistic way.

It then goes on about political posturing, so I can't be bothered to translate it.

I wonder why it has taken so long for the authorities to check up on the black market accomodation?

If they see it through it could have big repurcussions on the private rental sector.

Looks to me like they are going to investigate the extent of the problem. I am not sure they will do anything about it because if everyone involved in dodgy dealings suddenly evaporated there might be a few vacant political positions.

I read this week that seven thousand fines had been issued within the Canary Islands, but I have not heard of anyone on Fuerteventura being affected.

If you are interested in seeing the parts of the BOC that show what fines have been handed out and where then a search for "Hecho primero: artículo 84 de la Ley 7/1995" with the quotation marks, so it shows that exact phrase, throws up 2000 odd results.

They seem to be mainly in Tenerife.

At the moment.
