NERJA MAYOR: Jose Alberto Armijo
A MASSIVE €165 million golf course and 1,000 luxury homes project bordering two natural parks has been given the green-light.
The Spanish Supreme Court authorised project in La Coladilla area of Nerja which had been halted in 2006 by the regional government (Junta de Andalucia).
Back then, the Junta passed the Plan for Urban Development of the Axarquia (POTAX), protecting the land the project was to be built on.
But Nerja council had already sold the land to residential and tourist resorts developer MedGroup for €15 million.
Both the council and MedGroup appealed against this decision, but their expectations were not met as the Andalucia High Court backed the Junta in 2010.
Now the project, which comprised the building of an 18-hole golf course, 1,000 luxury villas and a five-star hotel has been given the green light.
The luxury resort is to be built in La Coladilla, located north the Nerja Cave and bordering the Tejeda and Almijara natural parks.
“Justice has spoken and has said Nerja Town Council was right,” said Mayor Jose Alberto Armijo (pictured).
