Demolition of Illegal Buildings in Attica Begins

    The first round of demolition of illegally erected buildings on the Athens-Sounio coast began on Wednesday, Environment and Energy Minister George Stathakis revealed in a press release issued on Thursday.

    “The government’s intention to push ahead with accelerating the demolition of 3,200 illegal buildings in Attica was implemented through legislative interventions a few weeks ago. Yesterday, the first round of demolitions began, which includes 22 buildings on the Athens-Sounio coastal front, in the Agrileza area, and the Marathonas-Dionysos area,” the minister’s statement said.

    The pace of demolitions will accelerate in the following weeks through successive announcements of new tenders, the statement added.
