No Almuñécar Beach Repairs

It appears that Madrid has no plans to carry out coastal-defence work in Almuñécar to protect its beaches, which hasn't impressed the Town Hall.

ALM Velilla GroyneThe relevant Ministry explained that, “the circumstances are not present,” which is another way of saying, the situation does not warrant it.

This was in response to a question asked by conservative Senator representing Granada, José Antonio Robles.

According to the Estrategia para la Protección de la Costa, there are plans afoot along the Costa Tropical for Motril and Albuñol, but not for Almuñécar.

The Almuñécar Councillor for Beaches and Tourism, Daniel Barbero approached Costas, requesting sand to be lorried (trucked) in for Playa Velilla and Marina del Este, as well as for the Las Góndolas and Puerta del Mar breakwaters to be repaired

Almuñécar has also submitted requests to Costas for repairs to the sea defences around the water park, which has fallen on deaf ears.

Editorial comment: Costas obviously considers it much more important building a wall over an entrance to a beach to stop people parking on it than rebuilding damaged sea defences, bless their cotton socks.
