THE number of Britons registered on Benidorm’s municipal Padron has increased by 4 per cent.
The figure was quoted in Benidorm en Cifras 2020 (Benidorm in Numbers) a two-yearly compilation of the town’s statistics, which would normally have been presented at the end of March had the coronavirus not intervened.
This year’s edition reveals that Spanish-born residents account for 65.3 per cent of Benidorm’s population compared with 66.6 since 2018.
The number of Britons has risen by 4 per cent, which the town hall attributed to the campaigns reminding them of the need to be fully legal by the time that the UK has left the European Union at the end of this year.
