FUENGIROLA Council changed its mind nine years after allowing open-air drinking sessions in one town square, and has now banned public boozing across the town.
So-called ‘botellon’ parties were authorised on Plaza Theresa Zabell in 2006, yet constant complaints from residents ever since who are unable to sleep at night have finally been listened to and the authorisation has been cancelled.
The decision also aimed to improve safety and traffic in the area, which in the past gathered crowds of more than 1,000 people, the council explained.
