People in Salobreña ask, “what’s happening with the TH1 hotels?” Well, apart from vandalism down there, not a lot, you would think.
But there is a glimmer hope because according to the Mayor, María Eugenia Rufino, things are starting to move again. She told Radio Salobreña that the Town Hall had received the go-ahead from the Comisión Provincial de Patrimonio. Now, these guys are the ones that make sure that you’re not going to cement over findings of archaeological value.
So, what’s the next step? In the next Plenary Meeting of the Town Council the Mayor will present a motion to award the developers their building licences for the hotels. But first the plans have to be put up to public scrutiny to see if their any objections. If there aren’t, the hotels get their building licences.
There have been a whole host of modifications throughout the year, whilst the Town Hall has been working in conjunction with the Provincial Delegation for Culture, and it has paid off with the Heritage Commission’s approval .
But things haven’t stood still in the meantime because the second stage for laying urban infrastructure on the TH1 is on the point of being commissioned. The second stage involves the area surrounding the old sugar factory, which will provide direct access from the N-340 to the TH1.
This will involve compulsory purchasing so a Junta de Compensación will have to be set up.
The new avenue that connects the TH1 to Avenida del Mediterráneo will eventually continue eastwards, past the Parque La Fuente and run behind the existing urbanizaciones. Yup, all that area of the vega will disappear eventually.
