WORK on the seven-star hotel planned for Almuñecar is far from being “on track”, a report local Spanish newspaper suggests.
Councillor Jose Manuel Fernandez told Europa Press that the only remaining obstacle is the Junta de Andalucia’s environmental impact report which he said was just “days away” from being issued.
However, the online publication of infocostatropical.com reports this week that the Junta de Andalucia, ruled by the socialist and left wing PSOE and Izquierda Unida parties, has not approved the project nor issued the building permit for the hotel.
The councillor, a member of the local conservative Partido Popular and Partido Andalucista team in office, said that the town hall maintained a “good relationship” with the Junta de Andalucia, helping everything to “go smoothly”.
This month, however, the local mayor, Trinidad Herrera, assigned a lawyer to defend the town hall against the Junta’s impeachment of the plan for the urbanization of the Peñon del Lobo area and the construction of a hotel by Bahia Fenicia Residencial SL.
Plans for the hotel had created much expectation locally, and a training programme had been created which aimed to prepare local unemployed people to work in the positions which it would create.
Bahia Fenicia bosses were not available to comment at the time of going to print.
