Debate over Villa demolition at Woerthersee

A luxury villa owned by multimillionaire timber industry mogul Hans Tilly at the picturesque Austrian lake Woerthersee may need to be demolished in part over allegations that it was not built with planning permission.

The local council at Krumpendorf has already warned that the building needs to be returned to its original form in the area of natural beauty  at Walterskirchen. If it is not done by the end of the month they have the opportunity to issue an order forcing the demolition of the illegal part of the multi-million-Euro villa.

The row has been going on since the year 2000 when the multimillionaire purchased the property for 6.2 million euros. A short while later a large part of the woodland was removed.

Then the property on the land was not merely renovated but was extensively rebuilt. Old walls were removed over the allegation that they were not safe any more.

The local mayor has said that he feels the need to completely remove the new building is not necessary. He feels an alternative solution can be found.

If the court is asked to order the restorable of the previous property and woodland it will take not just months but years with the cost passed onto Tilly.

Tilly himself declined to discuss the matter saying the had already been enough nonsense report in the media when contacted by the ORF.
