THE councillor of Sports, Andrés Ruiz, has presented the Local Plan for Sports Facilities and Infrastructures to the local sports clubs in a document that collects all the existing needs in the municipality’s sports facilities. The announcement took place at the Las Lagunas Theatre, where representatives from almost all of the clubs in Mijas attended.
“We have completed a historical and relevant document in Mijas which is the Local Plan for Sports Facilities and Infrastructures, an X-ray of how our facilities are and the needs they have. We wanted to involve all the clubs in Mijas, we have appealed to them and they have responded very well with their assistance,” he said.
Thus, it is a new plan in accordance with current regional regulations, which facilitates sports management in terms of improvements to its facilities and future investments. In addition, this document accepts suggestions from the clubs themselves.
“The first step we wanted to take before approving it in full and passing it to administrative proceedings was to present it to the clubs and give them the opportunity to contribute their ideas, suggestions and allegations. We wanted to make them participate and for them to be the first to know it since it is an important piece of information because it will help us in the future to access subsidies for improvements to the facilities or special competitions both at the regional and state level,” explained Ruiz.
The document will be taken to the next plenary session in June to be approved and then it will have a period of 30 days for the presentation of allegations. Once the term has elapsed, it will be submitted to a vote for its final approval.
It should be noted that this plan contains detailed work carried out over two years by the sports management consultancy Wayedra, a leading company in this sector and based on values such as innovation and quality. The consultant has had to wait to finalise the project, the approval of the new regional regulations to adapt to it and detail the public sports facilities as agreed therein.
The mayor responsible for the area has remarked that “it is a living document, which we will renew every three years that will facilitate the work and lay the foundations of a municipality that lives sport intensely and that wants citizens to have the best facilities and as many of them as possible, we are convinced that betting on sport is a safe, healthy and magnificent bet for these times,” he concluded.
