The Mayoress of Almunecar, Trinidad Herrera, had a meeting in Granada with the provincial Delegate for the Junta, Maria Jose Sanchez about the latest development on the 7-star hotel, planned for Cotobro (Peñon del Lobo) and it’s building licence.
Sra. Herrera gave reassurances that the Junta de Andalucia would ‘put no impediment to the 5-star hotel project, Bahia Fenicia, as long as it fulfilled all its legal requisites’.
Furthermore, the Junta is urging the building developers behind the project to complete the necessary paperwork to legitimize the existing building licence, which was issued lacking certain administrative requisites. In other words, as long as things are done correctly, there will be no problems.
The municipal Councillor for Urbanismo (Urban development) pointed out that the Mayoress has found herself immersed in administrative work that could have been done before, had there not been such ‘haste’ on the part of the previous administration to issue the licence prior to the municipal elections. The said councillor, Jose Manuel Fernandez, also described the relations between the Junta and the present Town Council as ‘cordial.’
Sr. Fernandez did not confirm that this paperwork hiccup would delay the commencement of the actual construction phase, which was due to begin this September. He did want to make it clear, however, that this meeting with the provincial delegates for tourism was a previously scheduled meeting and was not the direct consequence of the latest developments.
