The promoters of the Hermitage Barcelona museum have presented a contentious-administrative appeal against the Barcelona City Council “in response to the judicial process initiated by the council itself”, which presented an appeal of the same type against the Port of Barcelona for the concession of the new mouth that was approved on May 26.
In a public note, Hermitage Barcelona has explained that in its appeal it maintains that the position of the city council “is equivalent to granting the mayor and the councilor for Urban Planning a power to arbitrarily repeal the current urban planning approach”, which entails legal insecurity to the project, according to them. “Hermitage Barcelona was the only project that was presented with a proposal for that space and it has complied with the processing process scrupulously. Therefore, it has every right to be able to develop the project in this location that has legally and legitimately been it. conceived, “the statement added.
The director of the Hermitage Foundation UK, Guy Vesey, has argued that, despite the difficulties, the museum “still wants to be in the city and hopes to develop” its artistic project when the project is accepted by the current or future local administration, and the promoters have appreciated the support of the Port with this project.
