Suelo Urbanizable is land that you can are able to turn it into suelo urbano however in order for that to happen you need to have a Plan Parcial approved and then you need to get the approval of a Proyecto de Urbanizaciòn and then the land is available for you to build on but still the same restrictions that the Suelo Urbano apply.
