    Illegal aerials land Torresat in trouble

    Local TV provider Torresatélite is being taken to task over five broadcast antennas, which are believed to be illegal. The Councillor for Town Planning in Orihuela, Antonio Zapata, has announced that his department has identified five illegal aerials installed on the Orihuela Costa, owned by Torresatélite, which also dug a ditch six miles long without permission along the coast.

    The councillor said: “It appears that Orihuela is a virgin territory where you can install items for profit without this impacting on the town of Orihuela or having to ask for permission or compensate for your actions. Just a few weeks ago the company was denounced for the illegal opening of a trench six miles long in Orihuela Costa and now investigators have linked this action with the existence of these five antennas. Zapata also admitted that the owner of the company which in turn owns these illegal devices is a councillor in the neighbouring municipality of Pilar de la Horadada. Zapata noted that “the trouble is that those exercising such illegal activities should know better, because they hold a public office or maybe they think this makes their actions less illegal.”

    The Mayor of Orihuela has said that the city will require the immediate withdrawal of the antennas and, if not done, will take other measures to restore legality. This declaration will strike fear into the hearts of many Torresat customers, who will remember only too well the Telemicro fiasco a few years ago. The collapse of that satellite TV provider left thousands without British TV and out of pocket.

    The five aerials in question are located on buildings or plots that do not belonging to the owners of the company that installed them, making them illegal under the relevant law. According to Orihuela Town Hall these masts do not have the correct permissions or licences. They are environmental unacceptable and do not even have the agreement of the owners of the land on which they have been sited. Zapata said that he is liaising with the Department of Urban regularisation for such facilities, so that an ordinance can be adopted. Claims are also being resolved in co-ordination with the Head of Regional Planning Antonio Rodriguez Barbera.
