OPPOSITION to plans for the macro-development planned for Vega de Maro in Nerja continues to grow instead of abating.
Sociedad Azucarera Larios SA (Salsa) and Nerja Town Hall recently reactivated €311 million plans for an 18-hole golf course, several luxury hotels and 680 homes.
“The objective is to make Nerja an attractive destination for a high-spending sector that is not affected by seasonal tourism,” a Salsa spokesman said.
Guzman Ahumada, an MP in the regional parliament and also Izquierda Unida co-ordinator for Malaga recently dismissed the development as “speculation.”
It was vital to safeguard Maro’s environmental values and scenery,” Ahumada insisted.
