Aragon approves the bill to regulate Gran Scala

(Spain).- The Government of Aragon has approved the bill of the High-Capacity Leisure Center, that will regulate the installations of high-tourist impact, as the mega-project of leisure and gaming Gran Scala, that includes legal guarantees and the demand of a 6 million euros guarantee to the promoters of the project.


ice president of the Aragon Government, José Angel Biel, and the Councellor of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, Arturo Aliaga, who have presented the Project, have assured that the norm establishes "an innovative system of guarantees for the environment, the city and the viability of the project”.

The law establishes the minimum measures, of 1,000 hectares, that should have these type of facilities in order to be attached to the new law, and it also forces to create at least 3,000 direct jobs and the offer of at least 8,000 hotel places.

In 30 years, the Vice president has said that no project in Aragón has had so many legal, environmental, urban and financial guarantees as this one.

In this sense, and without mentioning Gran Scala mega project that is planned to be built by consortium Leissure Development (ILD) in Ontiñena (Huesca), Biel has said that, once the Regional Court approves the law, it may be presented a “requirement of one or more than one company”.

It also includes a legal norm which is special for the games of chance and bets, legal games and advertising, with a special attention in the protection of under-aged people. The project incorporates sanctions that go between 600,000 to 3,000 euros, and in an extreme case, it could generate the loss of the rights to manage the complex.

Now, the bill will be sent to the Parliament, where the Vice president expects to achieve the maximum consensus possible with political groups of the chamber to approve this law before the ending of this period of sessions, by the end of June.

Under this law Gran Scala project would be carried out, whose promoters plan to build 70 hotels, more than 30 casinos, several theme parks and other leisure centers, that would involve 17 billion euros.
