The Salobreña opposition party, Partido Popular, has called upon the Mayor to sign off the streets belonging to the urbanización above the Casa Roja.
Until the Town Hall officially accepts the infrastructure belonging to this new urbanización, the streets will remain blocked, with the inconvenience that this causes to local residents, says the party candidate for mayor, Pablo Torres.
“If the developers don’t come forward with a request for the Town Hall to sign off their work, then the Mayor should put pressure on them to do so,” he reasoned, adding that on more than one occasion elderly locals have asked him to put this request forward, so that they can take a shorter route on their way to do their shopping.
The said streets have remained with fencing across them since 2012, meaning that people who live in that area have to walk up the steep incline next to Casa Roja and back down again to reach their homes, he claims.
According to Sr Torres, the PSOE whilst in opposition forced the building work to stop with allegations that the project did not conform to legality; i.e., more floors than permitted. However, he claims, once in power the PSOE Mayor took a tour of the urbanización with pomp and ceremony, yet has been incapable of signing off the streets so that they could be opened to public use.
