In Carini, Italy, six more illegal buildings are set to be demolished, including a housing settlement consisting of eight small houses. The demolition work has already begun on a villa located at number 73 on Cristoforo Colombo avenue. The project is expected to be completed by Thursday or Friday, with the foundations of the house being demolished. The construction materials will be recovered and taken to a landfill. The demolition will then continue on other properties located at civic numbers 279, 337, and 377 on the same street, as well as a villa on Americo Vespucci avenue, number 322. The demolitions are being carried out by the company Scm Srl of Favara, which has won the bid and has 168 working days to complete the project. The demolition is funded 50% by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and 50% by the Municipality of Carini. The demolitions are part of a project that received a grant of €290,000 from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport. Meanwhile, the mayor of Carini, Giovì Monteleone, expressed concern over a recent decision by the Environment Committee in the Sicilian regional assembly, which passed an amendment allowing illegally built houses on the coastal area to be retroactively legalized up to 1985. The mayor believes this undermines the efforts made to restore the original state of the beaches. Since 2015, there have been 1,280 restrictive measures issued by the Carini administration, including demolition orders, non-compliance with demolition orders, acquisition by the municipality, and evictions. A total of 303 illegal properties located in areas where construction is strictly prohibited have been demolished in Carini, with 178 being demolished by the municipality and 125 by the private owners responsible for the illegal constructions.
