The illustrious, always noble, very hospitable village of Gaucín.
At the last town hall meeting it was agreed that a review process would be initiated aimed at stricter control of of the regulations regarding intensive  livestock farming.

As part of this process any land that is of special interest, be it for environmental or tourism reasons, will be given special consideration. A full survey will take place to decide which areas in the municipal of Gaucín will  be classified as such. As a result of this decision, any existing applications for such intensive practices are to be declined and  any future proposals denied until such time as the review is completed and the official “plan general” amended. This will take at least one year to complete.
