Estepona expats get local insight from mayor

EXPATS: Make up almost a third of Estepona’s population.

EXPATRIATES in Estepona held a meeting with the local mayor this week to discuss their needs.

The expatriate community makes up about 30 per cent of the town’s population, with 111 different nationalities registered.

Mayor Jose Maria Garcia Urbano stressed the importance of registering on the padron (residents’ register), explaining that if everyone was registered the town would receive more funds from the central government and that those registered also pay lower taxes.

Information was given on the latest projects the council is carrying out to boost tourism in the area including new botanical and orchid gardens, a coastal path, renovations to the historical centre and a new theatre.
