The council said it was investing €2 million in Marbella’s Las Albarizas.
According to Marbella Council, the plans to improve Las Albarizas will be financed by the council and the Junta de Andalucia.
The mayor, Angeles Muñoz, and the general secretary of Andalucian Housing, Alicia Martinez, have confirmed that the proposal presented by Marbella is set to be approved.
Mayor Muñoz said the plan, “represents another example of the commitment of the current Andalucian government with Marbella, enabling the improvement” of Las Albarizas.
She added: “We have to recognise the effort and support in the form of plans for our town by the Board.”
She said: “The goal is to improve buildings and neighbourhoods at the suggestion of the municipalities themselves.”
Marbella councillor Maria Francisca Caracuel said that the subsidy of the Junta de Andalucia for Las Albarizas could reach 80 per cent of the aid in case there are people with reduced mobility or over 65 years.
The news comes after Marbella council announced it is improving Calle Granados.
It said it is carrying out works to the road, including improvements to its pedestrian crossings.
It said: “Marbella council has started a series of new works on Calle Granados in Puerto Banus to guarantee safety in terms of mobility and revitalise the area.”
Councilor for Works, Diego Lopez, said: the council would also improve 20 tree areas. He said: “We will proceed in the same way, cleaning up the root area and paving to improve the safety of the area.”
He added: “With this municipal program of actions we are managing to significantly improve these spaces, achieving a safer and more comfortable town.”
He said the council wanted the town to look good for tourists.
