Council row over Velez Malaga disco ban proposal

THE three political parties that form the coalition government (PSOE, IU and Grupo Independiente Torre del Mar) that run Velez-Malaga are reportedly in disagreement on how to deal with residents’ complaints about nightclubs in the town centre. Town centre residents have lodged numerous complaints about noise and traffic in the area as a result of youngsters that frequent discos until the early hours of the morning.

The socialit party PSOE refused to back the proposal by IU to ban discos in the residential areas of the town via an amendment of the Plan General (PGOU).

According to Town Planning Councillor Salvador Marin (IU), the Town Hall “has a duty to guarantee residents’ right to rest if it does not want to have to pay compensation like the €2,812,680 paid to the 18 owners at the Ipanema building for excessive noise caused over a 13 year period by leisure establisments in El Copo,” he said.
