Motril Beach Protests

MOT Playa Granada Work OnLThe Motrileños are angry because summer is just around the corner and the storm damage caused in May to its beaches is still causing problems.

Locals consider that Playa de Poniente is far from ready for the summer, which is why they are organising a protest in the coming days.

According to the Spokesperson for the Asociación de Vecinos del barrio de Santa Adela, Lidia López, the sand transfers from Playa de Poniente to Playa Granada have caused havock to the former.

The constant coming and going of lorries has moved 200,000 cubic metros of sand, leaving Playa de Poniente with a huge shelf in it.

But it’s not just the locals from that area who are seriously miffed, but also the Town Hall, so much so that it has demanded solutions yet again, but lasting ones; i.e., the groynes and breakwaters to stop the sand shifting in future.

“They promised us that the sand transfers would be completed and both beaches in perfect conditions for the 1st of June,” fumed the Councillor for Beaches, Alicia Crespo, but this wasn’t the case because they still have to level the beaches, which will get in the way of beachgoers, she considers.

However, the neighbourhood association does not want any political parties present at the protest because they don’t want political parties trying to use the occasion for political gains.
