The Junta de Castilla y León advances to this Monday, June 27, the season of high danger of forest fires in Castilla y León, which will continue until September 30. This is how it appears in an order, from last Wednesday, June 22, published this Monday by the Official Gazette of Castilla y León (Bocyl).
The regional Executive applies the high fire danger from Monday, four days before July 1, the date that usually marks the beginning of the high danger period. In the order, it explains that "in general, the season of high danger of forest fires covers the months of July, August and September, where the meteorological circumstances significantly increase the danger of fires."
However, he adds, "throughout the year, circumstances of prolonged drought may occur that make it advisable to extend the season of high danger or declare new seasons of high danger."
Against this order, which puts an end to the administrative procedure, an appeal for reversal may be filed within a month before the Minister of the Environment, Housing and Territory Planning, Juan Carlos Suárez-Quiñones, or directly a contentious administrative appeal before the Contentious-Administrative Chamber of the Superior Court of Justice of Castilla y León (TSJCyL) within two months. Both deadlines will be computed from the day following their publication in the Bocyl.
