NIJAR Town Hall has given the initial approval for a complex with 1,000 houses, 2,500 hotel beds and a golf course in the Cabo de Gata area.
The development would be carried out on an area of 230 hectares in El Nazareno. The mayor, Antonio Jesus Rodriguez, explained that the plan is to take advantage of the tourism potential in the area so that when the market picks up in Spain, Nijar will already have its work completed.
The urbanization would be built gradually responding to demand by a company from the OHL group. Once everything is approved, a golf course, with a sports school, would be built, including an agreement with the town hall so that local residents can also enjoy the facilities.
The road would also have to be changed, as well as sewage and electricity facilities being installed.
The mayor also said that the project aimed to offer homes in the area at more reasonable prices to ensure the future of Nijar and create jobs. However, the opposition parties in Nijar are against the project.
