TORROX Local council has been ordered to pay for amendment works of the Plaza de la Constitución back in 2009.

The High Court of Justice of Andalusia (TSJA) has ordered Torrox Town Council to pay a total of €157,373 to the construction company Comsa S.A. for additional works in the redevelopment of the Plaza de La Constitución after the amendments were not documented in the original project.

The council appealed the court ruling in 2016 and the court has announced last week that they have dismissed it in favour of the construction company.

The works were originally completed in 2010 after two years to a total of €806,309. 

The Zapatero plan was launched in January 2009 and was designed by the socialist government at the time to regenerate the economy and employment structure of both Torrox and Nerja.

A total of €7.6 million was invested altogether by the Zapatera plan along with the Proteja Plan to help curb the financial crisis that was occurring.
