THE project to implement a CCTV system in Puerto Banus is on hold due to lack of ‘time’ and ‘funding’. “We are stuck,” said Centre for Tourist Initiatives CIT president Juan Jose Gonzales. The association is seeking funding to undertake the drafting of the project and company to undertake the work.
“Currently there is no entity willing to realize the project free of charge, even thought it would not be too costly,” said Gonzales.
He stressed that the essential problem lies not in the spending but the availability of CIT partners.
“It is more a question of time than money,” he explained.
“We continue to believe that this important project that would greatly benefit Puerto Banus and stop it from degrading,” assured Gonzalez.
“The implementation of a video surveillance system would help strengthen the security of an area that attracts more than five million visitors,” he added.
More than a year ago this project was rejected for the fourth time due to the submission of ‘incorrect’ documentation.
Once again they corrected the documentation and even developed a new proposal that met all the requirements insisted upon by the central government.
