The Macrocommunity (or Mancomunidad) is the bigger entity to which La Cala Hills Phase 1 now belongs.
The Macrocommunity comprises all the different developments in the designated area (see map below)
Previously the defined area had the very unglamorous name ‘Sup 13’ and delicate negotiations have had to take place between various developers, communities and the Town Hall for the Macrocommunity to be established and recognised.
Current President : Rafael Muñoz Ortega – La Cala Hills Phase 4
Authority to form the Macrocommunity
At the AGM held on 6th October 2005 the President sought the authority to represent the Community at the wider community of owners, known as the Macrocommunity. The owners gave this authority and asked the President to ask the pertinent people to constitute the Macrocommunity as soon as possible with the view of organising the maintenance of all the elements that constitute the Macrocommunity.

Registration of the Macrocommunity (by Horst Erbacher, President Phase 1)
The Mancomunidad, or Macrocommunity, under the name of EUC LA CALA HILLS was finally registered with the authorities and the first official minutes of an EGM dated December 16, 2008 filed with the ayuntamiento, the tax number obtained and a bank account opened. Following this, the minutes of the meeting were official and all owners could be informed about the mancomunidad and its development.
The first AGM, comprising most presidents of the communities in our urbanisation, took place in November 2008 and did not produce real results, since there was a request by the Junta de Compensation ( the assembly of developers and landowners) for payment of € 99.996,84 by the individual communities to the Junta for expenses supposedly prepaid by them. Additionally there was a request for payment of approximately € 25,000,– for electricity to Sevilliana-Endesa. This would have meant extraordinary costs for our community in Phase 1 of approximately € 18.000,00. The President of Phase 1, and other presidents, could not accept this and therefore the AGM was adjourned without establishing the mancomunidad or electing officers.
Subsequently meetings were held by Horst Erbacher (President Phase 1), the Secretary and the President of the Junta, members of Sevilliana and our legal advisor, with the result that the almost €100.000,00 prepayment was dismissed by the Junta and the debt to Sevilliana has been reduced from € 25.000,– to € 9.947,46. Also, in this period of time the originally proposed budget for the Mancomunidad of approximately €125.000,- was reduced to € 56.500,– This result was then unanimously approved by the EGM.
At the AGM in January 2020 Rafael Munoz Ortega was elected as President. The Administrator is Laura D. Varela Lewenberg
The distribution of votes between the members of the Mancomunidad, as well as their share of the expenses to be paid, is based on a coefficient, which comprises the land size of the community in square meters and the number of square meters constructed within the community. This is in accordance with the Regulation of Urban Development in Article 25 of the Horizontal Property Law. In simple terms it says that the largest communities, like Phase 1, Phase 3 and Cala Alta carry a larger share of the burden but also have more say in the Mancomunidad. The share of Phase 1 is determined at a coefficient of 14.33 out of 100.
Although the budget of the Mancomunidad has been reduced significantly versus the original proposal, actually by 55%, the cost to Phase 1 for the year 2018/19 amounted to €5,323.72.
The majority of the cost is caused by cleaning and maintenance of the roads, walkways and other common areas, electricity for street lighting and the cost of the Administrator to take care of all legal and government related areas. There is, however, an ongoing commitment to reduce costs wherever possible.
