VELEZ-MALAGA Town Hall wants to change municipal laws to prevent caravaners from parking illegally within in town limits.
The motion will be presented by the Partido Popular at a meeting tomorrow (Friday) to change local traffic and circulation laws which date from 2006.
The plan is to control the length of time such vehicles can remain on local roads or at the roadside, setting it at 9am to 9pm during the summer and 9am to 8pm in the winter.
The councillor for Traffic, Citizen Safety and Local Police, Antonio Arrieta, explained that for years, people have been camping in unauthorized areas in the town for unlimited periods of time, presenting a poor image of the town to tourists because of the rubbish they leave behind and the state in which they leave these areas.
He said that local businesses had complained that allowing caravans to park caused losses for the tourism sector.
