Barrier in Place

The Nerja Councillor for the Environment, Nieves Atencia, announced that the Junta de Andalucía has installed a barrier to stop access for vehicles to Río Chillar (Los Cahorros).

This was part of an agreement reached between the Town Hall and the Junta to put some sort of order into this natural-park area, which attracts hundreds of visitors each year. Nerja’s side of the agreement committed it to signposting the area and providing parking along Calle Mirto. The Junta’s side of the agreement was to install a traffic barrier.

The barrier only denies access to vehicles but people on foot or bicycles will have no problem gaining entrance to the area, of course.

For the 30th of of this month, the Town Hall has organised a litter collection and general tidying up along Río Chillar and calls upon the ‘green-minded’ to participate.
