The Motril Town Hall presented the plans for a park facelift for the Parque de los Pueblos de América.
The chief opposition party in Almuñécar has denounced that the trees on the Friday-market square are being drastically cut back/pruned in Spring.
If you’ve been out and about in Almuñécar during the last few days, you will have noticed little groups of municipal workmen gathered around trees on the pavements. So what are they doing we hear you asking?
As far as I can remember, Almuñécar has never been as beautifully adorned for Christmas as this year. The spectacular Christmas tree at the Town Hall square, with hundreds of poinsettias in a 7 metre high structure, and the fabulous decorations of the many roundabouts, especially the one at Avenida Carlos I, with a huge cello in the middle.
The cutting down of trees continues to cause friction between ecologists and opposition parties, on one side, and the governing PP, on the other. Now the Regional Ombudsman has decided to get involved, bless him, at the petition of the IU.
Anybody who has walked or driven past Las Esplanadas in the town centre will have seen workers and machinery operating on the garden area. However, this has generated quite a bit of controversy because the PSOE claim that old trees are being indiscriminately cut down and the stumps uprooted.
