Primark Marbella hung up on planning dispute

THE 200 jobs promised at Primark’s planned new store in La Cañada shopping centre, Marbella, are hanging in limbo due to a planning permission problem.

Last year the chain said they would open their third store in the province, following their Fuengirola and Malaga outlets, and reached an agreement with the owners of La Cañada for a 6,500 square meter location in the centre.

The huge scale of the Primark unit required other businesses to be moved, and work commenced on preparing the space for the Irish retailers.

But work was frozen in December, as disputes emerged between the shopping centre and local government over the type of planning permission that should have been in place.

Now local news reports that investors in the shopping centre are becoming nervous that the hold up could see the project fall through, with the loss of the hoped-for jobs and €4 million investment.
