ARROYO PRIMERO in Marbella has waved goodbye to the fair, meaning about 7,000 local residents won’t be forced to lose sleep during festivities.
The site, which has housed the annual San Bernabe fair for the last three years, will no longer have to put up with the noise and discomfort caused by fairs, which reportedly affected approximately 7,000 local residents.
A permanent fairground is to be built to the north of La Cañada shopping centre, and in the meantime (at least for this year) La Cañada will be allowing the fair to be held on 100,000 square metres of land where the third phase of the shopping centre is planned.
Yet an empty space will not remain in Arroyo Primero as the council plans to build a boulevard to replace it and has announced that the project may well be put out to tender before the end of this month.
A system similar to that used to create the new San Pedro boulevard is expected, whereby a number of ideas will be presented and locals will get a say in the choice of the winning design.
