  • This means that the towns will be prioritised for new infrastructure and flood prevention spending

The towns of Campillos and Teba, devastated by flooding in October last year, have been added to the Junta de Andalucía regional government's revised flood risk map.

This map first came into force three years ago and caused panic among town halls and investors as the planning panorama changed significantly and meant that zones at risk of flooding were subjected to new regulations.

However, in the case of these two towns, where a fireman died and dozens of families were left homeless, this means that they will become priorities for new infrastructure and flood prevention spending and new builds must have flood defences in place.
