Concept selected: Singular entity


A Singular population entity is understood to be any inhabitable area of the municipal territory, whether inhabited or, as an exception, uninhabited, clearly differentiated within that territory, and which is known by a specific name that identifies it without the possibility of misunderstanding.


An area is considered inhabitable when there are inhabited dwellings therein in a condition to be inhabited.
An area is considered to be clearly differentiated when the buildings and dwellings belonging to it can be identified perfectly on the land, and the whole is known by a name.
Therefore, seasonal housing estates and residential areas may have a singular population entity nature, even if they are only inhabited during certain periods of the year.
No dwelling may simultaneously belong to two or more singular entities. A municipality may comprise one or more singular population entities.
If there are no clearly differentiated inhabitable areas in a municipality, the municipality shall be considered a single entity.
