The Platform for the Defence of Health and the Sierra (PDSS) has asked the regional government to close down the illegal quarries in Alhaurín de la Torre and has threatened legal action through the public prosecutor's office.

The group has learned that the Junta has allowed the quarries to remain open for the last four years despite not having a municipal licence by using a measure that is usually only used in exceptional circumstances such as natural disasters.
