Espinar Cracks

The PSOE has brought the appearance of cracks in El Espinar, along Calle Vencejo, to the attention of the press.
Families living there were alarmed by the ‘progress’ of the growing cracks, which appear to be threatening at least two houses. These same locals complained to the PSOE that they had brought the matter up at the Town Hall but to no avail.

Flood Issues

On the very same day that we were reporting on the flooded and much-potholed Velilla beach road, Salobreña’s main roundabout was awash with rainwater.

Bus Station Fiasco

Municipal Budget Information

A sign of the times is that the Town Hall has just approved the lowest municipal budget in a decade. With a figure of eleven million, you have to go back to the late 90’s to find an equivalent.

Sugar Cane Fields Development

The local rag (Ideal) highlights the ‘Green Light’ being given to develop the former sugar cane fields in La Caleta. The plans include, as regular readers will know, a large marina along with one or more luxury Hotels.

Tax in Installments

Even more electioneering. The Ayuntamiento has announced that it will now accept payment of local taxes in twelve ‘easy installments.’ Puts you in mind of one of those financing commercials, doesn’t it?

Gas Pipeline

Dam Problems

Let’s start with one of our favourites– the Rules Dam. Believe it or not, the subject of exactly how to distribute the water from this magnificent (and hugely expensive) edifice is now on the local political table. And, as you might expect, local politics is, to say the least, extremely local.
