Boat Carrying Migrants Arrives On Beach In Spain’s Alicante
THE Town council of Rincon de la Victoria has begun its final phase of its beach clear up with the removal of unregistered boats.
The Department of Environment of the City of Rincon de la Victoria has issued the warrant to remove the vessels as part of the beach management project that will regularise the dry docks on the beach areas of the municipality.
The mayor of the area, Sergio Diaz (PP) authorised the first phase of the project which involved the inspection of over 400 vessels currently beached along the shoreline and in varying stages of abandonment.
Warning stickers were placed on the boats warning of the possible confiscation and disposal if not claimed.
The purpose of the scheme is to “ensure safety, health, environmental protection and beaches through different periodic actions, because these boats are often undermined by the use and time,” says the mayor.
The removal has already taken place in Torre de Benagalbón last week and will continue along Arroyo Totalán, San Juan and south of the Urbanization of Calaflores in La Cala Moral.
